Canadian synth-rock/funk group, TWRP, have announced their first headlining tour outside of North America, slated for October 2022. With eight dates across Ireland, Scotland, and England, the “War Of The Worlds” tour will mark TWRP’s return to the region following their 2019 sell-out tour supporting longtime collaborators and comedy music group, Ninja Sex Party.
The group’s eclectic rock/disco-funk music, exemplified through their 16-million-view viral hit music video, “Starlight Brigade”, continues to turn heads of those with a taste for retro science fiction, tongue-in-cheek humour, or high level musicianship. TWRP has only gained momentum in the time since their first European tour in 2019, having released full-length original albums yearly, collaborating with artists like Ninja Sex Party, Starbomb, Andrew Huang, Protomen, and honing their live show with extensive touring throughout North America. TWRP frontman Doctor Sung asserts:
“Like the relentless Martians that invaded southern England in H.G. Wells’ classic novel, TWRP will again descend upon the UK and Ireland in October 2022 in the tripod that is our tour bus, evaporating boredom with the heat-ray of our music. For so long we have been yearning to return, and the time is finally right to strike again."
TWRP is the sound of the future as imagined in the 1980s. Vintage funk, modern electronic, and classic rock converge in their sci-fi universe, as if Earth, Wind & Fire, Justice, and Casiopea provided the soundtrack to a 1980s cult classic film by John Carpenter.
