Little Boots Announce North American Release and Tour
"HANDS" which was released in June '09 in the UK, features the hit songs "Stuck on Repeat", "New In Town" and current single, "Remedy" which the NY Post recently praised as a "synth-pop gem" and named one of their "Top 209 songs of 2009."
Little Boots- known to her family and friends as Victoria Hesketh- is without question the most talked-about new UK pop star of 2009. She was named one of NME's Best New Artists of the year, won a BRITs Critic's Choice Award and BBC's distinguished "Sound of 2009" poll and is the first artist to have appeared on the Jools Holland show TWICE before an album release.
The Blackpool-born performer first captured attention as a member of electro-indie combo Dead Disco. Opting to pursue a solo career as Little Boots, she assembled an arsenal of synths and began airing her developing work on YouTube for all to see.
Earlier this year Little Boots' U.S. only "Illuminations" EP was released and served as an ideal introduction to her acclaimed brand of futuristic electro-pop. The five-track EP featured rare and exclusive tracks including the irrepressible anthem, "Stuck on Repeat" which started it all.
Little Boots, who completed a 5-city sold-out U.S. tour in the fall, will be back to kick off a North American headlining run March 2nd at NYC's Highline Ballroom. (See below for listing of announced dates—many more to come). Little Boots has been touring non stop around the globe for the last year playing major headline shows as well as hitting 33 of the summer festivals including the UK's prestigious Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds' Festivals, Scotland's T-In The Park, Japan's Summersonic and Denmark's Roskilde amongst many others.
