For the past decade, LA-based experimental noise rock outfit HEALTH has been an unstoppable force of mind-blowing sonic creativity and wild-eyed showmanship. The band's live performances are an exercise in tightly controlled chaos, treating ticket buyers to a blistering onslaught of distorted guitars, pulse-pounding drums, and mangled electronic textures punctuated by moments of mesmerizing melodic beauty. From the jagged riffs and visceral tribal drumming of "Crimewave" to the piercing electronics and ethereal vocals of "Die Slow", Health always takes ticket buyers on a sonic journey brimming with energy, experimentation, and adrenaline-fueled showmanship.
HEALTH formed in 2006 amid the fertile DIY punk and noise scene of legendary Downtown LA venue The Smell. They released their self-titled debut album on Lovepump United in 2007, quickly receiving a boost when popular synthpunk band Crystal Castles remixed their song "Crimewave". HEALTH built a reputation with their decibel-shattering live shows, and in 2008 they were tapped by Nine Inch Nails as an opening act on their Lights in the Sky farewell tour. Following five months on the road with NIN, HEALTH returned to LA and released their sophomore album Get Color to widespread critical acclaim. They followed up in 2010 with the remix album Health::Disco2, and in 2012 they surprised fans when they composed the soundtrack for the video game Max Payne 3. In 2015 HEALTH thrilled fans with the announcement of a European tour with Interpol, where they'll preview material from their highly anticipated third album.
