Shabazz Palaces announces headlining European tour dates for 2022

Shabazz Palaces is announcing new, headlining European tour dates for 2022 which begin March 18th in Brighton, UK at Patterns and currently end on April 30th in Lille, FR at L’Aeronef. Tickets go on sale Friday, October 29th at 10 am (local).
Preceding the European tour in 2021, Shabazz Palaces has a few U.S. shows including October 30th in Austin, TX at Stubbs (with Thundercat), and Saturday, November 6th in Springfield, MO at Outland Ballroom.
Shabazz Palaces is currently working on the follow-up to the internationally acclaimed The Don of Diamond Dreamswhich is available now worldwide from Sub PopThe New Yorker says of the album, “[Shabazz Palaces’] spontaneity and irreverence for rap conventions feel particularly urgent; these experiments are malleable and resistant to form at a time when declarative statements on the current era seem futile. Instead, the group continues bludgeoning musical complacency with songs as equivocal as inkblot tests.” Uncut continues, ”The Don of Diamond Dreams finds Butler’s effects-treated voice rippling through a prism of mutated funk and R&B that feels simultaneously sumptuous and deeply unconventional (8/10).”
Earlier this year, Shabazz Palaces’ self-released the single and official video for “20 Gear Science”, which Stereogum noted for its “spacy, synthy” sound. Even more recently, he celebrated the 10th anniversary of his landmark album Black Up. The AV Club says of the album, “The record still shifts uncomfortably in and out of view, pulses of static coalescing into hooks that vaporize after one incantation.” Meanwhile,  Pitchfork offered this, “From great mystery exploded an album of impossible vision.”
