NY-based multi-instrumentalist Delicate Steve (Steve Marion) has announced new US tour dates behind his critically acclaimed sophomore album, Positive Force, out now on Luaka Bop. Commencing on February 21 at Wesleyan University, the tour will include several appearances at SXSW 2013, as well as performances at Savannah Stopover and Treefort Music Festivals.

Delicate Steve is currently in the studio working on his followup to Positive Force. This past year saw his first European tour, including a sold-out London show, and performances with Sigur Rós, and Omar Rodriguez Lopez (The Mars Volta, At the Drive-In). Touring behind the album all last year, the band has shared the stage with Girl Talk, Givers, Yeasayer, tUnE-yArDs, and more. Positive Force was uniquely introduced, as ten bands including Yeasayer, tUnE-yArDs, Ra Ra Riot and Givers premiered a different track from the album across their social media channels. The album stream followed the band’s public installation listening event where playbutton devices housing one of Positive Force’s ten songs were placed in ten locations across Brooklyn and Manhattan.
