alt-J announce that Royal Albert Hall concerts will be UK’s first ever L-ISA Immersive Hyperreal Sound shows

UK - alt-J has announced that their two sold-out Royal Albert Hall shows later this month will be immersive sound performances utilising a surround speaker system enveloping the entire audience, these are the first concerts to utilise the technology in the UK. The shows will feature L-Acoustics’ revolutionary new audio technology L-ISA Immersive Hyperreal Sound which goes beyond traditional stereo to create a more multi-dimensional and natural experience, and a sense of intimacy, connecting artist and audience. Speakers will be placed throughout the venue to dynamically position sound effects mixed into a variety of the band's material, thus creating a truly immersive sound experience. alt-J first utilised the technology at a special, one-off show at New York’s Forest Hills Stadium in the summer.

The Royal Albert Hall shows (29th and 30th October) are the final dates of alt-J’s upcoming UK tour in support of their award-winning album RELAXER and its recently released counterpart project REDUXER. The band will be performing arrangements of songs from both albums at the shows. Paigey Cakey and Hex will perform with the band as special guests at the Royal Albert Hall; support across the entire UK tour comes from AK Patterson.
