Steve Summers, Svengalisghost and Delroy Edwards will accompany label boss Ron Morelli on a tour across Europe this spring.
Voted by RA staff as the best label of last year, L.I.E.S enjoyed a watershed 12 months in 2012, with key releases from XOSAR, Jahiliyya Fields and Bookworms, as well as the lauded American Noise compilation. Although L.I.E.S. remains very much a New York concern, Morelli based himself in Paris for a few months last year, and played several gigs across the continent during summer 2012. He'll return to Europe in 2013, with a busy two months of club and festival dates alongside label mates Delroy Edwards, Steve Summers and Svengalisghost.
"Once you get a taste for blood you keep killing and killing," Morelli says of the hectic schedule. Things kick off with a party hosted by London promoters Bloc on March 31st, and wrap up on June 2nd in Paris, hitting Amsterdam's Trouw, the Take Five Cafe in Bristol and Berlin's Panorama Bar along the way.
Morelli has also announced details of forthcoming 12-inches from Steve Summers, Svengalisghost, and Delroy Edwards, all of which will see release around mid-April to coincide with the tour. Delroy Edwards will follow up last year's 4 Club Use Only and Heart And Soul/Sprk Tha Dust 12-inches with White Owl, while Steve Summers and Svengalisghost will release Outermaze and Vicious Circle respectively. You can hear snippets of all three releases on the label's SoundCloud page.
