Australian indie-dance outfit RUFUS DU SOL has announced a North American headline tour set for the spring.

The tour, which follows multiple sold-out tours in the band's native Australia, kicks off March 7 in San Francisco, CA and sees the band crossing the U.S. and Canada with stops including Los Angeles' Echoplex, New York's Highline Ballroom and the famed SXSW music festival in Austin, TX (see full tour routing below).

Tickets for the tour will be available for pre-sale beginning January 29, and will go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, January 31 at 10:00AM local time. For additional information, please visit

In anticipation of the tour, the band has released the DESERT NIGHT EP, which is available digitally today at all DSPs. The EP includes hit single "Desert Night" along with remixes of the song by Kastle and Groundislava, as well as "Modest Life" (see full track list below).

"Desert Night" and "Modest Life" will be included on the band's forthcoming full length album ATLAS, set for release in the U.S. later this year.

ATLAS debuted at #1 on the national ARIA chart upon its release in Australia last year, and was nominated for two ARIA awards for Best Dance Release and Breakthrough Artist of the Year.

The band has received much praise for their debut, with MTV Hive noting, "Australian indie-dance juggernaut RUFUS are poised for a worldwide breakout...nobody can deny their infectious results."

Hailing from Sydney, Australia, three-piece RUFUS DU SOL has risen from obscurity to the forefront of Australian indie dance acts.

The band has garnered international recognition on the back of driving, catchy, danceable tunes, a killer live show, and a dedicated online following.

The band have put together four EPs in addition to debut album ATLAS, remixed a plethora of tracks and played parties, shows and festivals from Sydney to New York City to Moscow.
