On the heels of one of the most talked about Coachella performances of the year, Gesaffelstein has announced his Requiem tour. The tour kicks off November 7 in San Francisco and promises to be his “darkest” show to date. 20 days later after making his way across the country, he’ll close out in Atlanta. He’ll also play at Governor’s Ball in New York at the end of May.
The French techno producer took darkness to a new (and literal) level at Coachella, donning a suit made of Vantablack, the darkest substance known to man. He was the first artist to ever wear the material that absorbs 99.96% of all visible light that hits it- seriously upping the bar for techno fans and their closets full of black clothing.
Gesaffelstein aka Mike Lévy has been leaving us breadcrumbs since last fall when mysterious billboards with his name began appearing in various cities. This led to the release of his sophomore album, Hyperion, which was met with mixed reviews. However, after two incredible performances that were as satisfying to listen to as they were to watch, old and new fans alike are surely marking their calendars for his upcoming journey “against the night” and “across time.”
