The British duo will head out on fifty-five dates including twenty four in the US, starting on September 12th at First Avenue in Minneapolis, MN and leading up to Moore Theater in Seattle, WA on October 22nd. Tickets for all live dates go on sale through OhWonderMusic.com on June 9th.
Oh Wonder have recently shared the fourth track from their upcoming sophomore album, “Heavy”, which launched with a video that stitches together 2665 individual photographs to create the allusion of the British duo dancing within a makeshift color cube. “Heavy” follows Oh Wonder’s current single “Ultralife”, as well as previous releases “Lifetimes”, and “My Friends”. Their new album Ultralife, which was written in New York City and then recorded and produced entirely by the duo in South East London, is available now for pre-order HERE and will be released on July 14th through Island / Republic Records.

In an era in which pop careers require careful planning, Oh Wonder are an anomaly. They’re a band formed by accident not design, a duo who didn’t intend to play live but spent more than a year touring the world, and a major label act who never saw this being anything other than a DIY project.
Ultralife is both Oh Wonder’s extraordinary second album and their debut proper. Its eponymously-titled predecessor, released in late 2015, was a collection of songs they had posted online at the rate of one a month, which millions of listeners fell in love with, turning London-based Josephine Vander Gucht and Anthony West into reluctant pop stars. Now their first album is fast approaching half a billion streams - a happy accident indeed.
