Italian electronic artist The Bloody Beetroots, also known as Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo, recently announced his North American tour titled, My Name Is Thunder.
The ten day tour kicks off October 27 in San Diego, CA and will hit several major U.S. cities including, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, Denver, Minneapolis, Chicago, Detroit, New York, as well as a stop Toronto.
The Bloody Beetroots is currently touring his way through Europe. Pre-sale tickets for the North American tour become available this Wednesday, August 2 through Spotify and Dancing Astronaut. Tickets go on sale this Friday, August 4.
These dates mark The Bloody Beetroots first live shows in North America in over three years. This year, Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo celebrated his 10-year music anniversary.
Releasing his first recordings in 2007, The Bloody Beetroots has had his music featured in commercials, TV shows and video games, and provided dozens of remixes for artists including Depeche Mode, The Chemical Brothers, The Refused, Peaches, Crossfaith and Britney Spears.
The Bloody Beetroots has two new singles out, one of which being “Saint Bass City Rockers.” The song premiered at Dancing Astronaut as a “Track of the Day.” The artist describes it as,
“A long voyage, an electronic mantra that is articulated with different melodies, touching various spots around the world, from California, India, Norway and England. I imagined this voyage as I wrote the song.”
“My Name Is Thunder” is a double single that represents the various genres that define The Bloody Beetroots.
The first version is driven by heavy electronic beats and synths while the second is led by JET’s gritty guitar-driven rock and roll. Both singles will appear on his next album to be released later this year.
