M83 Heads to Canada Before Coachella

Published: 2005-02-25
French electro-pop act M83 is living the life many people dream of - jet setting on somebody else's dollar. The band's touring the globe in support of their new disc "Before The Dawn Heals Us", which was just released late last month on Mute Records. After a March tour of France and a hop over to the UK for three dates with The Secret Machines, M83 will be spending somebody else's money to come to North America.

Beginning on April 12th in Boston, the month long tour of the continent will make a total of 15 stops, including two in Canada. M83 will finish things off with a performance at the biggest North American music event of the year: the Coachella Festival in Indio, California - the destination of every music lover on the continent come April.

"Before The Dawn Heals Us" is the second full-length release from M83. Their first came in the form of the imaginatively titled "Dead Cities, Red Seas & Lost Ghosts" in 2003. The lush, flowing keyboard music M83 creates can be credited to mastermind Anthony Gonzalez, who made "Before The Dawn Heals Us" pretty much by himself after band mate Nicolas Fromageau moved onto other things.

M83's upcoming Canadian stops:

April 18 Montreal, QC - Cabaret Music Hall
April 19 Toronto, ON - Lee's Palace
