It’s time to party with Simian Mobile Disco (literally the “mobile disco” part). The electro duo will kick off its late winter tour on March 8 at the Venue in Vancouver, supporting its recent album Delicacies (released this past November). The announced dates include HARD Weekend 2011 shows in the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles and New York. Making its way down south over the course of three weeks, SMD will end its tour at the Ultra Music Festival, in Miami on March 26.

James Ford and James Shaw formed SMD in 2005, as a result of the two parting ways with the electronic rock band Simian. But unlike dance bands that bask in the glory of the hi-tech, SMD uses analog equipment to create a rugged sound to their music, as can be heard on track “Mixed Delicacies.”
