EOTO Launches National Fall-Winter Tour

Share Article

The 100% live and improvised bass juggernaut EOTO has over 40 dates planned for the rest of September and the entire month of October. The duo will close out festival season with Wonk Fest in Bellingham, WA, Blackwater Music Festival in Live Oak, FL, and Earthdance in Vallejo, CA. The end of September brings a 3-date run with Bassnectar in the Midwest, and the tour will culminate with EOTO’s annual Halloween bash in Lawrence, KS. Along the way, fans can catch shows in Montana, Michigan, Massachusetts, Maine, and many more. New technology is constantly being thrown into rotation, and the continued collaboration with a full-time, touring VJ is elevating the already explosive live show to a whole new level.

With their 2011 Sonic Bloom appearance, the two-headed bass juggernaut EOTO has officially hit the 5 year mark. What began, half a decade ago, as a late-night, after-party experimental electronic project has evolved into a full-fledged headlining behemoth. The drummer-producer team of Jason Hann and Michael Travis has pioneered the art of live dubstep, not only bringing the big, brash, bass-heavy EDM movement to the concert setting, but crafting it on stage and on the spot more than a hundred times a year. The only proper way to honor this milestone is with a monster fall tour, and EOTO’s doing just that.

Almost 40 dates are planned for the rest of September and the entire month of October. The duo will close out festival season with Wonk Fest in Bellingham, WA, Blackwater Music Festival in Live Oak, FL, and Earthdance in Vallejo, CA. The end of September brings a 3-date run with Bassnectar in the Midwest, and the tour will culminate with EOTO’s annual Halloween bash in Lawrence, KS. Along the way, fans can catch shows in Montana, Michigan, Massachusetts, Maine, and many more. New technology is constantly being thrown into rotation, and the continued collaboration with a full-time, touring VJ is elevating the already explosive live show to a whole new level.

For those who can’t make it out to the live show, or for fans who want to dig even deeper into the EOTO universe, the band is releasing a whole slew of concert goodies. Throughout the tour, the duo will release a weekly podcasts featuring 20 minutes of live audio, and a Q&A with Hann and Travis about gear, life on the road, and whatever else fans want to know. Additionally, check out the Jason Hann Flip Cam series on YouTube to get an idea of the venue and check out the way the visuals were laid out during a particualar show. Remember, you can relive each womp and wobble from the more than 400 live show recordings available for download. And check out the third volume in the K-Turns and U-Turns series. Spanning 4 hours and 27 cities, the 2010 tour retrospective packs in 39 seamless tracks from around the country, giving old and new fans alike a year-in-review sampler.

With dates at huge, prestigious venues and growing flocks of fervent fans, Michael Travis and Jason Hann are celebrating EOTO’s fifth anniversary in style. Join the bass crusade, this roving, non-stop dance party as it runs from coast to coast and back again.
