Portland indie pop outfit STRFKR have announced an eight-date Asia tour, including two nights in Bangkok and Singapore.
The trio will be playing Bangkok’s
Horizons Zense at Zen and Singapore’s Aliwal Art Centre on Friday, October 6 and Sunday, October 8, respectively. The tour, which will also take the band to Taiwan, China and Japan, comes in support of their fifth and latest studio album Being No One, Going Nowhere.
Ticket and sale details will be revealed soon. In the meantime, Thai fans can follow local promoter Medium Rare Live, who has hinted the band’s visit earlier this month, for the latest updates.
Previously known as Starfucker and Pyramiddd, STRFKR are Shawn Glassford, Keil Corcoran, and Joshua Hodges, who started STRFKR in 2007 as a solo project. They’re known for “Sazed”, “While I’m Alive” and “Rawnald Gregory Erickson the Second”, a song that raked in their mainstream success, largely due to Target’s sampling of it for a commercial in 2009.
STRFKR released the “early bird” vinyl of Being No One, Going Nowhere in November 2015 before full-releasing it in 2016. The album marks the group’s biggest commercial milestone to date, landing at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Heatseekers Albums chart and No. 9 on the Independent Albums chart.
But here’s our favourite from 2013.
