The New York-based duo is touring in support of their debut full-length Secondhand Rapture, due May 14. Songs include “Hurricane” and their most recent single “Fantasy”. The album follows the group’s critically acclaimed EP Candy Bar Creep Show. The album also includes previously released track “Bones”, which was featured in the recent Game Of Thrones season trailer.

A headlining mini-tour will start May 15 with a sold-out show in New York City at Bowery Ballroom and will include stops in Philadelphia, Chicago, Columbus, Toronto and Montreal.

According to a press release, “Ms Mr’s live performances, which the The Village Voice deemed ‘intoxicating’, have created a media buzz around the band. Time Out New York described their style as ‘refreshingly sincere new-wave style mood pop.'”

Ms Mr has toured with Marina and the Diamonds and Grouplove. The band kicked off 2013 with two sold-out performances in their hometown at NYC’s Mercury Lounge and a sold-out performance at Los Angeles’ Echo.

MS MR are Lizzy Paplinger and Max Hershenow.
