Back in February, the Norwegian electronic duo – Svein Berge and Torbjørn Brundtland – embarked on their European ‘True Electric’ tour, which saw them stop off in Stockholm, Amsterdam, London, Brussels, Prague, Berlin and Oslo.
Now, they have announced a US tour and second European leg kicking off later this year, which will follow a summer of festival dates.

“With True Electric we want to bring the pure and immersive Röyksopp experience of our studio productions to the live stage,” the duo said in a statement. “This means synths, samplers & sequencers, in a performance where the hero of the show is the music itself. Expect an eclectic set where energetic beats meet vast, transcending soundscapes. True electric – what it says on the tin.”
Reviewing the first two parts of last year’s ‘Profound Mysteries’, NME wrote: “It’s a satisfying ride. This smooth and consistent journey through nostalgia and the energy of new ideas means that ‘Profound Mysteries’ parts one and two stand up as latter-day career triumphs for Röyksopp. Taken as a whole, it’s certainly their finest collection of music since ‘Melody AM’ – and the opening of a bold new chapter.”
Röyksopp’s Sven Berge told NME that their mission statement for their new double album project was to “trigger your imagination – to get your senses going”.
