One of our favorite new bands to emerge in 2018, Belgian-based (by way of Australia’s Byron Bay) electro-funk Parcels are setting out on a huge world tour this week, kicking off at Washington, DC’s U Street Music Hall (we’ll have coverage).

Many of the US dates are already sold out, but we’d recommend you find your way into a show if they’re coming to your town, since the smart money is on them playing much larger venues upon future returns to the states. The buzz is spreading quickly on these guys across the globe – several of their top tracks have already amassed north of 5 million streams (their 2017 collaboration with none other than Daft PunkOvernight” has already hit 28,000,000 and counting) and we expect them to be a big staple on the US festival circuit as they’re booked for this year’s Coachella and Governors Ball.

As NME put it best in their glowing review of Parcels s/t debut:

“they’re cheeky, timeless and devilishly fun.”
