He'll play at Day For Night festival in December.
The last time Richard D James played the US, it was at Coachella in 2008. Since then, he's rebooted his production career, starting with his Syro album in 2014 and continuing on with a string of records, most recently Cheetah.
As Pitchfork reports, James is one of the headliners for the Texas festival, and has no other US appearances planned. Day For Night is also Aphex Twin's first major live performance anywhere since 2012.
