Stereolab Announce Dates For U.S. Tour

Euro-synth band supporting Cobra and Phases Group Play Voltage in the Milky Night.

Euro-synth band Stereolab have announced dates for their U.S. tour in

support of their latest album, Cobra and Phases Group Play Voltage

in the Milky Night.

The tour kicks off Nov. 8 in Hoboken, N.J., and runs through Dec. 16 at

New York's Irving Plaza.

Known for their unique blend of droning synthesizers and airy vocals,

Stereolab built a following by combining often-overlooked influences like

movie soundtracks and analog synthesizers into moody, droning pop songs

such as "Blue Milk" (RealAudio

excerpt).

The band, which formed in 1992, gained a cult following by mining the

lost vein of retro-styled space-age sounds.
