Mount Kimbie announce tour dates

UK duo Mount Kimbie have added four new shows to their upcoming European tour, with extra dates in Germany and Italy announced.

The duo, signed to Scuba’s Hotflush label, will release their debut album Crooks & Lovers on July 19.

Despite their affiliation with Hotflush, they are reluctant to be pigeon holed as dubstep, and will no doubt be thrilled at sharing the stage recently with acts like the xx (in Paris) and Caribou (in London), both of whom happily eschew genre categorization.

They are also set to play at a number of festivals, including London’ s Field Day, Iceland’s Airwaves, Poland’s Unsound and the Isle of Wight’s Bestival.
