New Zealand brother-sister duo Broods have announced May and June headlining dates, including stops at Detroit's Majestic Theatre, Boston's Royale and Baltimore's Rams Head Live. The pair's last release was 2016's Conscious, an ambitious, innovative dance pop effort which featured the singles "Free" and the Lorde co-write "Heartlines."
“We wanted to make something...that had some essence to it, that was addressing things that aren’t addressed in pop music that much, Broods' Georgia Nott told DIY. "I can’t stand songs that are about nothing, because I’m a lyricist...Yeah, it’s pop music, but it’s got something more. You can hear in the album there’s not one song about going to ‘the club’. I never fucking say ‘club’...I feel like there’s enough of that out there, I don’t need to add to the club songs."
They may have had their fix of club songs, but they'll be hitting club stages this May and June. After performing at two weekends of Coachella, opening for Empire of the Sun at the Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles and helping out Zedd at Frost Music Fest in Northern California, the pair will kick of a North American headlining tour. The tour opens in Chicago and makes stops in 12 cities, including Detroit on May 27, Boston on June 3 and Baltimore on June 6. Check out the whole run below.
