“I never dreamed when we started Dengue Fever that we’d be in a situation where we could book a tour that would take us from Norway via Turkey and end up in China,” said Dengue Fever vocalist Chhom Nimol. “We are so happy to play dates for the first time in Vietnam and Hong Kong while being able to return to Europe yet again. We have amazing fans in Scandinavia, Germany and Turkey so it’s great to come back to our second home. I just hope there are no flight delays!”
Dengue Fever also have confirmed two festivals this September in the U.K.: End of the Road Festival (http://www.endoftheroadfestival.com/) and Bestival (http://www.bestival.net/).
Dengue Fever just returned from a frenetic SXSW music convention (www.sxsw.com) in Austin, TX, where they performed eight shows in three days, and recorded sets for New Jersey’s WFMU (http://www.wfmu.org/) and University of Minnesota’s Radio K (http://radiok.cce.umn.edu/). The band is currently writing and demo-ing new material for their next official release.
