Fuck Buttons

UK duo Fuck Buttons return this week (7/23) with their new record, Slow Focus. It's a great record of electronic psychedelia, which, like the new Jon Hopkins album, creeps up on you with surprisingly strong melodies, rather than being as immediate as, say, Disclosure.

Fuck Buttons will be touring Europe with The Haxan Cloak (that's a good pairing) in September, and though there's no full North American tour announced yet, we do know that afterwards they'll be coming to NYC for a show on October 18 at Le Poisson Rouge. No openers for that one have been announced. Tickets go on sale Wednesday (7/24) at noon.

UPDATE: A full North American tour was announced. All dates are listed below.

All currently known dates are listed, along with an edit of "The Red Wing" from Slow Focus, below...
