Absolutely surreal to hear the news this morning that Epoch has been nominated for a Grammy for Best Dance/Electronic Album. The first Tycho release was 14 years ago and since that time I’ve had the good fortune of working with some incredibly talented and passionate people to help realize this vision. For me Epoch felt like the culmination of that journey so to have it recognized in this way is something truly special. This is an extraordinary honor and we’re immensely grateful to have fans who have supported us for so long and enabled us to make the music we love without compromise. - Tycho [via Facebook]

Tycho's new album Epoch was nominated for a Grammy for Best Dance/Electronic Album, where he's up against Flume, Jean-Michel Jarre, Underworld and Louie Vega. Will Epoch win? We'll find out February 12. In the meantime you can listen to the LP below.

Tycho will play Houston's Day for Night festival this weekend and will then gear up for a lengthy 2017 tour that includes a stop at Primavera Sound in Barcelona. A little before that, they'll play Bowery Presents soon-to-open Brooklyn Steel on May 3. Tickets for the Brooklyn Steel show go on sale Friday, December 16 at noon.
