    Los Angeles-based Active Child is pleased to announce a run of tour dates kicking off this Sunday May 8th in Washington, DC. The dates will find Active Child supporting UK electronic musician James Blake.

    This tour precedes the release of Active Child's debut album, which will arrive on August 23rd, via Vagrant Records. The album is as-yet untitled.

    Active Child is the musical project from choirboy-turned-indie pop musician Pat Grossi. His debut collection of songs featured the skilled use of various '80s-tinged synths to create ethereal, soaring soundscapes, punctuated by crisp electronic drum samples and handclaps. All of this lays the groundwork for Grossi's exquisite vocals, which, with their unearthly sound and evocative lyrics, take on an enchanting, hymnal quality that would not be out of place amongst the richly colored sunlight of a church's stained-glass interior.

    Active Child tour dates are below:

    5/8 Washington DC @ Rock N Roll Hotel
    5/9 Philadelphia, PA @ First Unitarian Church
    5/11 New York, NY @ Bowery Ballroom
    5/12 New York, NY @ LPR
    5/14 Toronto, ON @ Lee's Palace
    5/15 Chicago, IL @ Lincoln Hall
    5/16 Minneapolis, MN @ 7th Street Entry
