Silver Wrapper and React announce that Modestep will headline the House of Blues in Chicago on Saturday, April 6, 2013. Having already ignited massive audiences in the UK with their raucous live shows, London-based dubstep-rock band Modestep hit the road this March for a five week tour, visiting major North American cities along with Ultra Music Festival and Coachella. Modestep will be touring in support of their debut album, Evolution Theory, out digitally on February 12.
Modestep were born online in 2008, when brothers Josh and Tony Friend started Modestep Radio to showcase their productions and dubstep tracks they loved. By late 2010 they were writing their own songs, one of which was "Feel Good", for which they made a cheap video. They gave the exclusive to dubstep Youtube channel UKF and within weeks it had 4 million hits. By Jan 2011 Modestep found themselves on the Radio 1 A-List and the hottest unsigned property in UK music. Modestep became a fully-fledged live band after Josh (vocals, keyboards) and Tony (decks, guitar) recruited Matt Curtis (drums) and Nick Tsang (lead guitar) in early 2011. Since then the band have toured relentlessly, smashing it at Festivals all over the world including North Coast Music Festival in Chicago.
- Elektro Magazine calls Modestep "an auricular army, shooting bullet ballads packed with some of the most creative refrains in EDM today."
- "Modestep are reasserting just how dynamic and exciting the genre can be", says Alternative Press.
- And Kerrang! declares, "Welcome to the future. The Modestep live show is something you have to see to believe." We suggest you find out for yourself."
Tickets go on sale at Silver Wrapper Ticketing 2/2/13 at 10AM CST!
