The Cinematic Orchestra Announce 1st US Tour In Over A Decade, Including Special Performances At LA’s Walt Disney Concert Hall, NYC’s Brooklyn Steel + More

Watch The Cinematic Orchestra's New Live Video For 'Lessons,' Directed By Brian B+ Cross In Joshua Tree

The Cinematic Orchestra have announced their first US tour in over a decade, an extensive nationwide run that includes - in addition to a very special, already announced show at LA's Walt Disney Concert Hall on November 23rd - stops at NYC's Brooklyn Steel, DC's 9:30 Club, and many more. Full tour routing below.

The Cinematic Orchestra - led by Jason Swinscoe and Dom Smith - will tour with a 7-piece band of virtuosic performers who are all long-standing members of the revered electronic group. The announcement follows a 3-night run of hometown shows at London's Roundhouse, which the Times of London called 'atmospheric...transporting.'

To celebrate the announcement, The Cinematic Orchestra have released a live video for 'Lessons,' a cut from their new album and first in 12 years 'To Believe,' out now on Domino/Ninja Tune. 'Lessons' was shot in Joshua Tree, CA and directed by Brian B+ Cross, and provides a small taste of what fans can expect from the band's hypnotizing live show. CoolHunting praised the video's sweeping approach, and said that it 'commands attention.' Watch the video for 'Lessons' here:

'The desert has been an important reference for Jason and Dominic during the creation of this project,' says B+. 'It was wonderful to go back out to Joshua Tree and hear the music performed live by the full capture the energy in the room.'

On the instrumental 'Lessons', a melodic, melancholy meditation is built around Luke Flowers' drums, driving the track's ebbs and flows of energy. The saxophonist is the ever-present band member Tom Chant, who in many ways embodies the evolving symbiosis of the band: a friend-of-a-friend turned studio partner turned bedrock of the band's live formation over two decades.

'To Believe' has earned praise from NPR Music, who dubbed the album 'soaring, rich,' saying, 'there's an incredible range to this record,' and The Guardian, who called it 'heartbreakingly brilliant.' Uncut said, 'never more cinematic, nor more else combines dignified grandeur and soulful romance so effectively.' See below for The Cinematic Orchestra's full international tour routing.
