Grammy Award-winning, Ivor Novello-nominated trio NERO today announce a 20 stop North American tour that will take the band coast to coast across much of the United States and into Canada. The tour will see the band showcase their highly anticipated sophomore album, Between II Worlds, as they build on their headlining performances at Coachella Music Festival and Lollapalooza earlier this year.
NERO will take their live performance to key stops like Denver’s Safe In Sound Festival, Austin City Limits Festival, Boston’s House of Blues, a secret warehouse location in NYC, Washington DC’s Echostage, San Francisco’s Warfield Theatre, as well as a soon to be announced Southern California stop.
Between II Worlds is an album of evolution, that celebrates a sense of love among the ruins, and cements NERO’s reputation as one of Britain’s most exciting bands. It both follows NERO’s collaboration with Baz Luhrman on The Great Gatsby, and complements their 2012 chart topping album Welcome Reality (and attendant hits ‘Me & You,’ ‘Guilt’ and the Platinum smash ‘Promises’) while pushing the band’s sound further than ever before.
Early cuts from the new album ‘’Satisfy,’ ‘Dark Skies,’ ‘The Thrill’ ‘Two Minds’, and ‘Between II Worlds’ have offered a tantalising glimpse of what’s to come, while earning critical acclaim from the likes of Rolling Stone, The Fader, Billboard, Nylon, Flaunt and more.

Between II Worlds began life three years ago in the Hollywood Hills house where Orson Welles wrote Citizen Kane, and was completed in London during the spring of 2015. It sees NERO emerge into a fully fledged live band, with Alana Watson front and center, alongside Daniel Stephens and Joe Ray.
Alana’s often fragile vocals provide a brilliantly hypnotic foil to Dan and Joe’s uncompromising, hard-edged production, informed by an enigmatic retro-futuristic ideology with nods to Ridley Scott’s vision of a decrepit future in Blade Runner, that runs through the band’s entire identity.
Fans who pre-order the album will receive album tracks ‘Satisfy,’ ‘Dark Skies,’ and ‘Between II Worlds’ instantly.
