Nero readies debut album: Welcome Reality

on June 30, 2011, 4:36pm

As dubstep continues to invade American clubs, music festivals, and pop music production, the genre has quickly evolved with the help of divergent international artists. North American dubstep producers primarily spin testosterone heavy teeth-rattlers, while young artists hailing from the UK (aka the genre’s birthplace) layer prevailing bass lines with much more intricate melodies and vocals. At the forefront of this UK scene are Daniel Stephens and Joe Ray, better known as Nero.

Now in their 7th year as a duo, Nero are finally set to release their debut LP, Welcome Reality. The 14-track album is not just dance-floor thumpers hitting listeners at 140 BPM, but a well crafted release with aesthetics ranging from drum and bass to pop, electronica to R&B. Check out the official videos for both “Guilt” and “Innocence” below, as well as the complete tracklist.

Ahead of the August 15th worldwide release via MTA/Mercury, Nero will hit the road for an extensive North American tour. The duo will kick things off in Southern Florida on July 8th, then hit up Camp Bisco and Red Rocks before traveling through Canada during the end of July. US fans can then see Nero perform as they travel across the nation with the inaugural Identity Festival. Peep the complete list of dates below.
