M83 is set to release their Midnight City Remix EP on September 27th. Available digitally, the EP features a set of remixes for the newsingle "Midnight City" (out now) by Trentemoller, Big Black Delta, Man Without Country, and Team Ghost.

Available now at all digital music providers, "Midnight City" the first single from the forthcoming epic double-album, "Hurry Up, We're Dreaming" (October 18th).

Produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Beck, NIN, The Mars Volta, Goldfrapp), mixed by Tony Hoffer (Air, The Kooks), and including contributions from Brad Laner (from 90's band Medicine) on guitar, Saturdays=Youth vocalist Morgan Kibby,and guest vocalist Zola Jesus, Hurry Up, We're Dreaming is a double-album journey that takes us to the horizon and introduces us to new landscapes. About awakening, craving, and conquering, Hurry Up, We're Dreaming pushes into new vocal territory for M83. Here we see Gonzalez test out different ways of singing, ranging from a spectral breathy whisper to a howling scream. "I think it is a reflection of my 30 years of being a human being. It's a compilation of all my previous music together. It's a retrospective of myself", says Gonzalez.

M83 has also announced a tour that kicks off in Washington D.C in the US on October 28th where a second, late night show has been added due to demand for dates throughout the US and Canada, including a headline performance at the Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, TX alongside Lykke Li, Passion Pit, and Odd Future.

Additionally, the Minneapolis and Boston shows have been moved to larger venues due to popular demand. Expected to be a sold out US tour, shows in New York, Brooklyn, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Washington D.C., Vancouver, and Raleigh are all officially sold out now. The fall tour dates will be M83's first live shows in over two years.
