Rival Consoles / October 2015 UK Tour

By on Friday, 25th September 2015 at 9:00 am

Ryan West, better known by his electronic stage name Rival Consoles, will be going out on his first proper headline tour next month. He’ll be touring in support of his newest and third album ‘Howl’, which will be released on the 16th of October on Erased Tapes. (Buy the album directly from the indie label here.) He’s currently in Colombia at the moment for MUTEK Bogota – yes, it IS unfair that electronic artists get to go to such exciting destinations – but I imagine he’ll be in fine form for his tour in October, which includes a stop 2 days before the album release at the esteemed Corsica Studios in London on the 14th of October. Tickets to all the non-free shows listed below are on sale now.

Catch all of my previous coverage on Rival Consoles on TGTF, including my interview with him on the last day of SXSW 2015, right this way.
