Philip Selway has confirmed the addition of Adem as special guest for his upcoming dates in New York, Seattle, Portland and San Francisco.

A post-rock icon as half of Fridge and member of the Silver Columns, Adem has released three acclaimed nufolk/folktronica albums as a solo artist on the Domino label with a fourth on the way. Adem’s remix and production efforts have included work with artists as diverse as Sia, Explosions In The Sky, Underworld, Foals, and of course his work on Philip’s sophomore album, Weatherhouse.

Released in the fall of 2014, Weatherhouse was described by Stereogum as “a pop record with an artful touch that further develops his tender emotional spin on expansively moody sounds” and hailed by Rolling Stone as “a sweeping suite full of moody psychedelic arrangements.”

The album’s material, as well as songs from Philip’s solo debut Familial,  will be brought to life for the first time on U.S. stages next month when Philip and his band of Adem Ilhan (backing Philip as well as opening the headline dates), Kath Mann (a/k/a Quinta) and Chris Vatalaro play four American headline shows as well as the two-weekend Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival. The U.S. run begins April 10 at Le Poisson Rouge in New York City with an early evening performance: Doors will open at 6 pm, with Adem on stage at 7 pm and Philip on at 8 pm.

Tickets for the upcoming dates can be purchased here.
