Duo Matt and Kim have announced a headlining North American tour, making stops in Atlanta, Cleveland, Memphis, and others beginning September 1st. Phoenix New Times hails, “with raucous live shows to match their uplifting sound, Matt and Kim are a quintessential modern pop sensation,” and Nashville Scene praises their performance as, “a shot of vitamin D straight to the brain,” while SF Weekly calls their set a “no-holds-barred dance party” saying, “they’re the act at a music festival that draws you in with their relentless energy.”
The tour follows the release of Matt and Kim’s latest LP Almost Everyday, written during Kim’s extensive recovery period following after an onstage injury in early 2017. Writing began just one month after Kim’s surgery, resulting in one of their most personal albums to date, with emotional tracks about mortality and loving what you have before it’s gone.
After the album’s release, Matt and Kim have returned to the studio to collaborate with both Isom Innis of Foster The People and electronic dance duo The Knocks on remixes of tracks for release this year.
