Rhye presents 'Please'

 

Back for the first time in four years, the exceptionally talented and awesome duo known as Rhye are back with new music. 'Please' is the beginning of the next glorious chapter from a group known for creating wonderful, relaxed, intense, innovative and impossible not to love music. 

 

It's been four years since their amazing album 'Woman', and here's what frontman Milosh has to say about the upcoming tour:

 

“Because we play live so much, we’ve built this show that’s somewhat different from Woman. It’s a little more psychedelic. I wanted to bring that to the second record. I really wanted to incorporate much more soulful and earthy colours. It had to be all live percussion and piano. The human intimacy had to come through the actual instrumentation on this record.  ‘Please’ is the stepping stone to where we’re headed.”

 

TOUR DATES:

July 8 – Brugge, Belgium – Cactus Festival

July 9 – Montreaux, Switzerland – Montreaux Jazz Festival

July 11 – Milan, Italy – Magnolia 

July 14 – Pori, Finland – Pori Jazz Festival 

July 15 – Salacgriva, Latvia – Positivus Festival 

July 26 – Taipei City, Taiwan – Legacy Nightclub

July 28 – Niigata, Japan, –Fuji Rock Festival

July 30 – South Korea – Handside River Park
