LCD Soundsystem and Hot Chip have announced an earth-shattering tour that will combine both acts into one travelling party scene this Fall. Indie dance music geeks will surely be converging for a Mecca-like experience as both DFA acts have the power to move people.

LCD Soundsystem have been turning in massive performances all Summer, including their performance at this year's Coachella gathering. They've been touring in support of their latest release This Is Happening.

It was recorded at The Manshun in Los Angeles, where LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy had been cranking out the album and a soundtrack for the Noah Baumbach film Greenberg (which came out on on March 22nd). He also worked on it in New York.

 

He had to stop work on the LCD album to complete the soundtrack, which sounds nothing like LCD Soundsystem.

 

"The hardest part was stopping in the middle to make music that had absolutely nothing to do with the record. I wasn't at all concerned about it sounding like me or sounding like LCD. In fact, it was almost a non-goal," said Murphy when speaking to SPIN.
