Doldrums adds tour dates with Unknown Mortal Oechestra

Doldrums began in 2010 by posting videos and designing websites by fictional bands under a variety of different band pseudonyms, ‘Doldrums’ being one of them, the name taken from a favorite children’s book, Norton Juster ‘s “The Phantom Tollbooth”. He gained notoriety in his native Toronto through performances at Everlasting Super Joy, his studio and DIY venue co-run with members of DD/MM/YYYY, as well as involvement in flash parties in abandoned spaces. 2010 saw the release of a number of 7″s including a split with DD/MM/YYYY and a VHS mixtape of his own music videos.

In 2011, after hearing his interpretation of their song ‘Chase the Tear’, Portishead released his song as the b-side to their single. At the same time, new tracks fell into the hands of cult London indie label No Pain In Pop, and were quickly confirmed for release as Empire Sound, his debut EP.

Now working towards the release of his debut LP, Doldrums just released a new single “Egypt” and is currently on tour with Bear In Heaven and Blouse.Upcoming world tour dates with Grimes (UK / Europe) and Unknown Mortal Orchestra (US), along with a series of festival appearances, are confirmed for the summer.
