La Roux Announce US Dates

(PR) British synth-pop sensation La Roux are set to hit the shores of North America for a slew of [overused cliche removed] performances this summer.

21-year-old Elly Jackson and producer co-hort Ben Langmaid, the talented South London duo who make up La Roux, have made an impressive impact on the UK's music scene since joining forces just two years ago. While collaboration began in London's burgeoning underground warehouse scene, it is has since landed on daytime radio and the upper echelons of the British charts. Single "In For The Kill" recently reached #2 and sustained its position for a solid four weeks.

It is also the UK's biggest selling single by a UK artist of the year and has sold 500,000 copies and counting. The self-titled debut full-length will be released in October on Cherrytree Records in the US.
