Groundbreaking electronic duo Justice have finally announced a tour to support their sophomore album “Audio, Video, Disco,” which was recently released on Elektra. The 2012 tour returns Justice to the States for the first time in over two years.
Justice have staked their feet in the music industry soil, proving their potential for an extended and more ubiquitous career by progressing their sound and expanding their musical vocabulary following a successful debut album.Justice 's follow up is clearly rooted in their familiar electronic foundation, but adds more than a few traces of their musically sophisticated prog influences.Already known for their dance floor frenzies, this latest release might even pull a few rockers away from the punch bowl and into the party pool.
In addition to the tour announcement, Justice has a few cool things planned around it including a “cover our songs” style contest for the chance to see the first show of the tour on New Year’s Day in Sydney, Australia.(More details here)
Other stops on this tour include New York, Boston, Philadelphia, DC, Atlanta and Las Vegas, to name a few, but we have a sneaking suspicion there could be something more in Indio, CA.The US portion of the tour goes from March 16 to April 25, with Los Angeles conveniently left off the itinerary and with two key weekends in April left vacant. To us, that sounds like a near guarantee that they’ll show up at Coachella 2012.No, Justice haven’t been confirmed by any means, but we are so confident in our trusty crystal ball that we will pay everyone who shares this article $1 if we they don't show up in Indio, CA in April 2012.Go ahead, spread this one.We dare you!
