Run the Jewels announces Blade Runner-themed US tour

on May 27, 2015, 12:09pm

El-P and Killer Mike, tka Run the Jewels, will spend the next several months on the road. While their summer plans consist mostly of festival appearances around the globe, the band will embark on a proper US headlining tour beginning in September.

In what will undoubtedly put a smile on the face of Anthony Bourdain, the Jewel Runner Tour takes inspiration from Ridley Scott’s dystopian masterpiece, Blade Runner, right down to its incredible, Ian Klarer-created artwork. Check out the expansive tour schedule below.

Run the Jewels are currently at work on RTJ3, the follow-up to their widely successfully sophomore LP, RTJ2. Due to touring obligations, the album likely won’t see release until 2016. However, the duo does still plan to drop its Meow the Jewels cat remix album before year’s end.
