Maribou State Announce Huge New US Tour and Release Remix of "Feel Good"

British electronic/electropop duo Maribou State are releasing a new album of remixes of their critically acclaimed Kingdoms in Colour and planning an extensive US tour.

Last year, Maribou State released their brilliant Kingdoms in Colour album. A daring, constantly engaging record that skillfully layered a bold, prismatic fusion of styles that whisked the listener away on a beguiling musical journey. The album made our Best Electronic and Best Albums list as well. Following a string of sold out US shows earlier in the year the band are returning for their biggest US tour to date, culminating in a show at New York's iconic Webster Hall.

To celebrate the announcement of the tour, the band is also sharing a remix of "Feel Good" by Texan trio Khruangbin which removes the vocal samples and the ice-cool guitar riff of the original, slows the whole thing down and turns it into a speaker-rattling, rumbling dub track. The remix is the first to be taken from their forthcoming Kingdoms in Colour Remixed album which sees artists such as HAAi, Mano Le Tough, Skinny Pelembe, Juju & Jordash and Mount Liberation Unlimited spin the songs from their breakthrough album in wholly unexpected directions.

Tickets for the upcoming dates are available via presale from 30 April at 10:00am (Password: KINGDOMS), and via public release from 3 May at 10:00am. Kingdoms in Colour Remixed is out via Counter Records on 10 May.

Here's the original song, so you can hear the vastly different approach of the remix.

BBC Radio 6 Music had Maribou State in the studio for a live version as well.
