UK dance duo Gorgon City will release their debut album, Sirens, on October 7th via Priority/Capitol Records. The 17-track record features contributions from 2004 American Idol finalist Jennifer Hudson, dance songstress Katy B, and Swedish artist Erik Hassle. Gorgon City (Kye Gibbon and Matt Robson-Scott) will tour the United States next month in support of Siren. The 12 date DJ tour of North America will kick off on October 9th in Miami and finish up in LA on the 25th.
Gorgon City burst onto the electronic music scene earlier this year with breakout single “Ready For Your Love” featuring and co-written by MNEK, which went to #4 on the UK Singles chart and garnered praise from the likes of The New York Times and Pitchfork in the States. Hailing from the impressive Black Butter camp (Rudimental, Kidnap Kid), the pair is one of the most compelling and hotly tipped new acts in the ever-flourishing landscape of British club pop.
