Australian drum and bass group Pendulum has unveiled details of their eagerly awaited Tour of the Americas. The North American leg of the bi-continental trek will kick off on October 1 in Boston and will conclude with a CMJ Music Marathon showcase on October 26 in New York City. They also have a show in Brazil and two in Mexico.

Already a sensation in the UK and the band’s native Australia, Pendulum’s North American debut album, “In Silico,” is quickly causing a commotion in the U.S. The Perth-based outfit has been winning fervent fans everywhere for their hard-edged amalgamation of big beats, massive guitars and powerhouse hooks, resulting in the album’s #2 chart debut in the UK upon its release earlier this year and subsequent gold certification after only four weeks.

Recently, Pendulum made British headlines with their cover of Coldplay’s “Violet Hill” on Radio 1’s Live Lounge. The show itself dubbed it “the best Live Lounge to date,” and the track immediately earned itself a slot on the channel’s A-List alongside “Other Side,” the band’s current UK single.

American audiences received their first sample of Pendulum’s brave new rock ‘n’ roll-inspired sound when the band made their live US debut at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival this past April. Having recently completed their second sold out UK tour, Pendulum is spending the summer at nearly every major international music festival, including the UK’s legendary Reading & Leeds Festival, coming up on August 22 (Leeds) and 24 (Reading).
