France's Perturbator (aka James Kent) has been at it for a few years but picked up more buzz than ever (in the US at least) last year thanks to The Uncanny Valley. Like S U R V I V E, it pulls from '80 synthwave and horror soundtracks, and has some crossover in the metal world. US black metal band Astronoid appear on the song "Souls At Zero," and (like fellow French synthwavers Carpenter Brut), Perturbator is playing the 2017 Roadburn festival, curated by Baroness' John Baizley.

Before that fest, Perturbator will go on his first North American tour this month. It lands in NYC on January 12 at Le Poisson Rouge. That show is with Computer Magic and Kel Valhaal. Tickets are on sale now. All dates are listed below.

Last month, Perturbator dropped a new single, "Tactical Precision Disarray." Stream that and The Uncanny Valley below:
