ALTOCAMET will be visiting the US and Mexico in a one of a kind tour!
Altocamet is an Argentine electronic pop band, with post rock, chillwave and shoegaze influences. The band will be traveling to celebrate the release of their "Más Allá" album in a double vinyl format. This international tour will take them to the Mexican capital and some of the most iconic cities in the U.S. This tour is also part of the 20th anniversary celebration of the band.
After a first show in the historic Lower East Side of Manhattan (NY), Altocamet will do a showcase at Ruido Fest in Chicago, where they’ll be sharing the stage with other notable latin acts such as Natalia Lafourcade, Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, La Ley, Maldita Vecindad, and Aterciopelados. They will also take part in the famed Part Time Punks in LA, being the first hispanic band to take part in this show, which unites fans of shoegaze, dream pop, post punk and new wave on the west coast.
During the tour Altocamet will be sharing the stage with many upcoming bands from here in the US such as PaleDīan, The Stargazer Lilies, Stellarscope, and more. The tour has shows in Manhattan and Brooklyn (NY), New Jersey, Chicago, Dallas, Miami and Mexico City.
This trip is also to promote their acclaimed album "Más Allá", out on a double vinyl format by Casa Del Puente Discos. The album presents 10 elegant and melancholic tracks, with touches of post rock and electronic music in a pop setting . It features amazing guests such as Dante Spinetta and Richard Coleman. The album comes of as a dark trip-hop, slow and enigmatic.
Having packed their bags already, they’ll also be using this trip as a chance to master their next live album with Greg Calbi (at Sterling Sound in New York), recorded in a series of shows commemorating the 20 years of the band last September. This new album will be out in the second half of 2016.
The band is formed by Adrián “Canu” Valenzuela on vocals and guitars, Pedro Moscuzza on drums and Mariana Monjeau on keyboards. On this tour we will also be seeing Lautaro Minich and Emi Mendez as guest bass and guitars respectively.
