Following his epic return to the live stage at Coachella and Gov Ball, Gesaffelstein has announced a run of tour dates for fall. The upcoming tour will feature all new live production, which Gesaffelstein debuted at Coachella in the darkest performance ever. Praised by Paper, who noted that "few acts managed to make as big an impact as Gesaffelstein," and hailed as "awe-inspiring" by Billboard, the sonically and visually stunning show featured intense lighting design and a masked Gesaffelstein performing against a wall of deep darkness. His set features the exclusive use of Vantablack VBx2, making Gesaffelstein the first artist ever to use the substance in a live performance. Vantablack is the super-black coating used primarily in space applications which holds the world record as the darkest substance made by man. Gesaffelstein's set features a monolith design using the coating, which was applied to the concave surface of the monolith to create the illusion of infinite depth and blackness - a black hole on stage. See additional information about Vantablack HERE. Gesaffelstein's sophomore album Hyperion is out now via Columbia Records. Listen HERE. Check out the official music video for "Blast Off" featuring Pharrell Williams, which premiered in the Coachella livestream, HERE.
