BT and Christian Burns Join Erasure for North America Tour

In 2012, triple-platinum singer and songwriter Christian Burns joined forces with Grammy-nominated producer BT to form what could only be dubbed a “supergroup,” the musical outfit All Hail The Silence. Two years after coming together, the two recently revealed that they will finally be debuting as the opening act for the globally celebrated synth pop group Erasure on the latter’s upcoming Violet Flame North America tour.

“Vince Clarke of Erasure has been a major musical influence on Christian and me,” said BT. “We’re thrilled to introduce All Hail The Silence to Erasure’s audience and can’t wait to join them on tour.”

Given All Hail The Silence’s ’80s new-wave inspired sound (think The Human League and Depeche Mode), we could not think of a better complement to Erasure’s analog based, pop-oriented sound than BT and Burns, who focus on modular and analog synths as well as step sequencers when recording as All Hail. In fact, all the songs on their upcoming album are being recorded straight to tape and without the aid of a computer in a basement in Baltimore.

The tour announcement coincides with with the highly anticipated unveiling of BT and Christian’s single, “Paralyzed,” which has been generating buzz since it debuted on Sirius XM’s BPM station a few weeks ago. While an official release date has yet to be announced, the tune is scheduled to drop sometime in the near future via Enhanced Records.

“We’re excited for the fans who have supported us throughout the years to join us on this new journey,” said Christian. The upcoming tour will hit eight city over the course of nine shows and dates.
