Nurses Announce Fall Tour with Dominant Legs


Following the September 20th (September 19 in the UK) release of Dracula, Nurses embark on a North American tour joined by fellow pop innovators Dominant Legs. September 22, Nurses hold their official album release show at Holocene in their hometown of Portland, OR. We don’t know what the Nurses have in store for Portland, but their hometown shows are memorable, costumed, special-guest-laden, multimedia affairs that do not disappoint.

On Dracula, Nurses tap into the physicality of rhythm and how it speaks to the body itself, and this translates in their live performances. Nurses’ three members blend hypnotic sounds, shifting from instrument to instrument effortlessly, creating the feel of three producers onstage. Their performances are immersive, visceral experiences, and the dubby groove of Dracula is perfectly conducive to this performance approach. With the Girls-affiliated Dominant Legs joining them on tour in support of their upcoming album Invitation (out September 27th), this tour features two of fall’s pop benders on one stage every night. Check out the full tour dates after the jump, and if you haven’t already heard the first track from Dracula click below and start sweating to “Fever Dreams.”
