(April 6, 2009 – Brooklyn, NY) Fresh off winning MTVU’s Freshman 5 for their brand new video, “Slooow,” J*DaVeY, the genre bending California-based duo are proud to announce an upcoming European tour for the month of April. The tour, which kicks off April 8 in London, will span almost two weeks and feature performances in seven European cities, including stops in Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands, and more.
More than just a run-of-the-mill performance, the duo’s live show is an unforgettable experience that has received rave reviews. In The New York Times, writer Jon Caramonica sang the group high praises. In regard to vocalist Jack Davey’s seductively electrifying presence, Caramonica wrote, “Sporting what could only be described as a torrential Mohawk, Ms. Davey was an effortless performer – vocally assured, physically lithe, emotionally raw.” Now, as the duo prepares to head overseas in just a few short days, J*DaVeY’s European fans will have the opportunity to be similarly hypnotized.
After releasing The Beauty In Distortion and The Land Of The Lost double EP to high-acclaim, being featured everywhere from Fader to Allure to CSI: New York, and having performed with the likes of The Roots and Prince, J*DaVeY are prepared to build on their deafening buzz. Their forthcoming release, New Designer Drug, points toward a new direction for J*DaVeY, as the group dives into new sounds and refuses to be boxed, classified, or artistically stagnated. New Designer Drug will feature the guest production efforts from ?uestlove of The Roots, Greg Wells, and Khari Farrai and will be available this summer via Warner Bros Records.
