Zeds Dead’s ‘Altered State’

Saying they’ll be touring the states while “altering people’s state of mind as we go,” Zeds Dead has announced dates for its fall excursion. The “Altered States” tour features more than 35 U.S. and Canadian gigs over six weeks.

“We love making music, it’s our passion and addiction at times,” the Canadian electronic duo says. “We never expected to play shows. It’s incredible how two introverted producers ended up on stages in front of thousands, but it happened somehow and we have grown to love it more than we probably should.”     

DC and Hooks have plenty more shows to play this year. Previously announced gigs include appearances at in Chicago, in Ottawa and Diplo’s Mad Decent Block Party tour.

Before the “Altered States” trek begins Zeds Dead promises the duo will deliver a “constant stream of output.” Plus, a new stage production will be unveiled in the coming months.

“We’ve got new releases on deck, summertime mixes, artwork, videos and all sorts of material we can’t wait to unleash on our fans,” DC and Hooks say. “Keep watching Alteredst8s.com where we’ll be dropping everything first.”
