The Presets Plot American Return

(PR) This summer has seen The Presets play packed-to-the-rafters and raving arena-sized venues on a nightly basis. Internationally renowned festivals such as the UK's V Festival, Glastonbury, T in The Park, Norway's �ya Festival, France's Pantiero Festival and a triumphant headline slot at Australia's Splendour in The Grass, have witnessed audiences blown away by the band's electric stage performance, as addictively compelling as it is intense.

Now, all hail, The Presets are returning to America! This fall Julian and Kim continue their sonic crusade on the American music loving masses. Hell-bent on converting the most stoic of rock music fans into pop-possessed dancing maniacs, the band will traipse around the country for 30-odd dates of non-stop party with co-headliners and Modular labelmates Cut Copy.

To celebrate their return to North America, The Presets release Talk Like That, the third single from Apocalypso. Flexing the melodic muscle of a hyperactive Pet Shop Boys, and injecting their own high-octane Presets rush, Talk Like That is a tense exercise in drama and lunacy, set atop a bed of haunting church organs and stuttering vocal samples.
