Critically acclaimed bass music pioneer Bassnectar, AKA Lorin Ashton, has released his milestone 10th artist album 'Noise Vs. Beauty'.

Out now via his very own imprint Amorphous Music, it's available to purchase in digital, CD and vinyl formats from

Featuring early singles "You & Me", "Now" and "Hold On", the 15-track album, which was made available to stream in full via Rolling Stone yesterday, has already garnered considerable praise from the likes of Billboard, VICE, Stereogum, Mixmag, SPIN and Sirius XM Radio to name just a few.

Dubbed the most inventive electronic artist since Aphex Twin by NPR, Bassnectar has criss-crossed the world selling out huge venues and donating hundred of thousands of dollars with his Dollar Per Basshead Program, but took an extended break to complete the album.

July will see Lorin head to Europe for a slew of high-profile festival and club dates across the continent with his 2014 'European Vacation'.

With gigs at Privilege Ibiza, Belgium's Tomorrowland, 50HURTZ in Amsterdam and Bootshaus in Germany, he'll then be returning to North America to complete the all-important summer festival season.

With prime-time slots at Shambhala, Moonrise, Das Energi, Summer Set, North Coast, Mystik Sanctuary and TomorroWorld, October will then see Bassnectar embark on his recently announced NVSB Album Tour.

The NVSB Album Tour kicks off on October 4th at Madison Square Garden with a special 5,000-person warm-up show, which Bassnectar refers to as a "Special Sound Check" gig at the Main Street Armory in Rochester, NY on October 3rd.
