Knife Party are set to arrive in New York next month where they’ll headline the Haunted House Tour. The Halloween-themed, electro-bass bonanza will kick off on October 26 at Pier 94, MTV News can exclusively announce.
The Hard Events and RPM-sponsored event is, of course, a play on the cherished end-of-October, American tradition and the talent pool includes New York’s Baauer, Destructo, Style of Eye, Kill the Noise, Tommy Trash and previously mentioned Aussie headliners Knife Party, all of whom are sure to bring fiery set lists. (Coincidentally, Swedish house music stars Alesso, Otto Knows and Sebastian Ingrosso are gearing up for two simultaneous “Mixed Up” shows on October 27, at Pier 94 and Nassau Coliseum.)
The Haunted House Tour promises five opportunities to light up your Halloween weekend, with dates scheduled in as many cities, including Chicago and Los Angeles. Add to that the grouping of Trash, KOT (a.k.a. Kill the Noise) and KP, known as purveyors of steaming, dance-floor madness.
L.A.-based producer Kill the Noise, who doles out some of the dirtiest bass-bombs in the business; and two of our EDM Rookies to Watch in 2012, Knife Party & Tommy Trash, have made creating hands-in-the-air dance-floor chaos their signature.
But if you’re on the hunt for EDM stars on the rise, Style of Eye is an impressive Swedish producer, and we expect big things from Destructo and Baauer.
Tickets for the tour go on sale on Thursday. For more info and event details head to Pacha NYC’s Facebook page.
