Experimental indie electronic duo YACHT will tour North America this spring, previewing its new album. The pair will join its band the Straight Gaze featuring new member Katy Davidson. The tour begins in April and includes a stop at Coachella.



Beginning as the solo project of leader Jonathan Warren Bechtolt, YACHT became a group of two in 2009 when fellow multimedia artist Claire Evans was invited to join. Evans was introduced through the release of See Mystery Lights, and in 2010 the Straight Gaze was added as the backing band.
