Attention: Gusgus To Tour the US for First Time in Three Years

Icelandic electronic masterminds Gusgus are poised to drop their highly anticipated third album, Attention, on August 27 by way of our good friends at Moonshine Music. The collective, now made up of President Bongo (Stef Stefansson), Biggi Veira (Birgir Thorarinsson), Buckmaster (Herb Lego), and newly added vocalist Earth (Urdur Hakonardottir), will also be headed back to North America for the first time in three years for a 16-date trek in support of Attention. The album's first single, Desire, which features vocals from former Gusgus member Daniel, has been serviced to radio with a number of out-of-this-world remixes. Tastemaker extraordinaire Jason Bentley, teamed with producer Carmen Rizzo, put their spin on the song, as did 29 Palms, Smitty & Davenport, and Mike Burns. "Desire" is currently blowing up at specialty and you can listen to it here. Check out the full itinerary for Gusgus' North American tour.
