Big Gigantic has announced their 2013 tour.

Tickets go on sale today, Nov. 30.

“From the impressive lightshow to the bombastic beats and soaring sax improvisations, Big Gigantic lived up to both halves of their name, and left the stage reminding the audience that electronic music is still an open template with endless possibilities.”—Jed Nussbaum, Relix.com (11/1)

The 45-date tour has featured over 2/3 of sold-out shows and continues to receive critical acclaim with the press.

Following the tour, the band will end the year with a handful of big shows including performances at “BassLights” with Bassnectar and Pretty Lights December 28 in Hampton, VA and the SnowGlobe Music Festival in Lake Tahoe on December 29.

They’ll ring in 2013 for the second year in a row in Chicago performing at the Aragon Ballroom on New Year’s Eve with support from GRiZ and Manic Focus, followed by performances in early January on both HOLY SHIP!! and Jam Cruise, marking the first band to ever play both cruises.

“When the band started, it was easy to see where its sizable reputation comes from—most notably its catchy sound and danceable grooves. Laptop programmed beats formed the foundation as the band traded riffs back and forth between drums and saxophone. Live drums kept things fluid and lively while the sax made the songs soar instead of just throb… If more bands put that much effort into their stage show, the world would be a much better place.”
—Josh Gross, BOISE WEEKLY (10/21)

 “They blew the roof off with their signature style of Jam-styled acoustic/electronic dance tunes.”
—LSU DAILY REVEILLE (11/20)

“The music I had just experienced rejuvenated my relationship with electronic dance music; it reminded me why the rise of electronic dance music (EDM) makes perfect sense, and why it can be so awesome.”
—Drew Parrish, USD RADIO (10/8)

“While many DJ’s fail to execute an exciting live show, Big Gigantic brought a fresh twist on electronic music.”
—Luther Kuefner, LA PUMA (10/16)
