Having already participated in the main stage madness of Coachella, Lollapalooza, IDENTITY Festival and HARD Summer this year, the latter with their live show, Nero – aka UK dubstep duo Dan Stephens and Joe Ray, plus vocalist Alana Watson - will tour North America in October and November.
DJing nine shows, including stops in New York, Boston, Toronto and Washington DC, they'll be dropping tracks from their hotly received debut album 'Welcome Reality', which is repacked and released as a deluxe edition on October 22 with two brand new original Nero tracks, 'Won’t You (Be There)' and 'Etude', plus the huge Skrillex/Nero remix of 'Promises', their smash which hit Gold Record status in the US this month.
If you want some further assurance that Nero will rock your world, then check the words of The New York Times who maintained that 'Welcome Reality', “pulls dubstep toward the arena-pop spotlight without leaving its shadows behind.”
