These Are Powers Announce China Tour

NINE DATES INCLUDE SHOWS IN BEIJING AND SHANGHAI

These Are Powers will be bringing their soundtrack for the future peace movement to China for nine dates that include a residency at Beijing’s D-22 Club with additional dates in Shanghei, Nanjing, Wuhan and Tiajin. Sharing the bill on select dates with Carsick Cars – pioneers of China’s developing “No Beijing” scene – These Are Powers invitation to perform in China arrives at a crucial time as contemporary artists, modern composers and rock musicians in the world’s most populated nation are experiencing a revival after years of suppression from the communist authorities. Tour dates and more information below.

These Are Powers’ All Aboard Future album cross-wires art-damaged difficult listening with skewed rock swagger. The result is a thrilling, hyperpercussive collection of laptop ditties mixed so cleverly that they’ll sound great ticking through earbuds or booming out of dad’s trusty Cerwin-Vegas. SPIN

These Are Powers release All Aboard Future–for all its dystopian doom–somehow shakes out as the first truly modern punk record of 2009. ALTERNATIVE PRESS

As far as tone is concerned, These Are Powers have that down above anything else. Teeth-grittingly tense and with chilling atmosphere, they play the appropriate soundtrack for a bombed-out, water-damaged Brooklyn basement with one bulb for light. PITCHFORK
