Yes Giantess drop 'Ruins,' tour w/ La Roux

More Hotline action, whatever, I am just one man and today sucks:

The Yes Giantess world domination plan is starting to gain some traction, as the local dance-pop quartet releases a new single next month off Neon Gold Records just after hitting the northeast road with UK electro duo La Roux. The band will also have a Feb. 12 showcase gig at the Middle East as part of Together.

Yes Giantess’ new single, “The Ruins” (not to be confused with local DJ duo Roguewaves’ equally sterling track “Ruins”) drops Feb. 22 via Neon Gold, the New York indie-cool tastemaker label that first offered us stuff from Passion Pit and Marina & the Diamonds.

Here are the La Roux tour dates, which begin with Sunday’s re-scheduled show from last year at the Paradise Rock Club, followed by some Yes Giantess presser deets from the Magnum PR folks:

Tour Dates w/ La Roux:
1/31/10 Boston, MA @ Paradise Rock Club
2/1/10 Chicago, IL @ Lincoln Hall
2/3/10 Quebec City, QC @ Imperial
2/5/10 Montreal, QC @ Metropolis
2/6/10 Ottawa, ON @ Capital

Yes Giantess Announce US debut single and tour supporting La Roux

The Boston foursome Yes Giantess is ready to become a household name in 2010. They're unleashing some of the biggest jams you'll hear all year, starting off with their US debut single “The Ruins.”

Produced by Starsmith -- the acclaimed British beatmaker lurking behind Ellie Goulding's shadow --“The Ruins” veers towards the darker end of the pop spectrum. With a gut-rumbling bassline, pulsing and hypnotic synth wizardry, and an undeniable hook, this one may very well call for repeat listens. The 7-inch is backed by b-side “Call My Name,” a light R&B jam to a forlorn lady.

The video for “The Ruins” is directed by the Brooklyn duo of Ben McIntire and Danny Abel. The 1930s-sci-fi-inspired epic features femme fatale robots, a kidnapping, and heavy fog; all of which perfectly compliment “The Ruins’” insistent, throbbing brand of pop. Also keep an eye out for a slew of remixes coming from some of the hottest new young players about. The band will be providing unique video content to complement each remix - all of which will be available online.
