The Bloody Beetroots Announce Tour With Live Band

The Bloody Beetroots Announce Fall Tour

With Live Band

First U.S. Extended Tour with:

The Bloody Beetroots DeathCrew 77!

After a brief break from DJ sets around the world, Italian producer and polymath Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo, a.k.a. The Bloody Beetroots, is preparing to launch his latest U.S. tour this October. For the first time, Rifo will be joined for the extended tour by a full band: Bloody Beetroots DeathCrew 77. Stepping out from behind the mixers, Rifo now plays guitar, bass, and synths and is joined on stage by Tommy Tea on controllers and the Beetroots’ newest member Edward Grinch on drums. The new live setup is a dramatic reinterpretation of the Beetroots’ music and the ultimate marriage of the band’s love of grinding electronic melodies, aggressive hardcore punk, and elaborate compositions.
Check out the band Live at La Cigale as well as their new video for “Domino” for a sample of The Bloody Beetroots DeathCrew 77.
Since bursting onto the scene in 2007, The Bloody Beetroots have brought a sense of danger to dance floors across the globe. From “Butter” to “Cornelius” to the Steve Aoki assisted “Warp 1.9,” The Bloody Beetroots’ early singles dominated clubs across the globe, paving the way for the group’s debut full-length Romborama. Released in August 2009 on Dim Mak, the record blended lines between house, techno, hip-hop, hardcore punk, and even at times orchestral compositions (Rifo spent years studying composers like Chopin, Beethoven, and Debussy, after all)Romborama was a star-studded affair that featured guest appearances from everyone from Justin Pearson (The Locust, All Leather) and Vicarious Bliss to The Cool Kids and J*DaVeY. The record was followed by the Spares of Romborama Series, which included Xmas Vendetta and The Domino EP. Around this time, Bob recruited Tommy Tea to help him out on the road, and the DJ duo toured the world with one of the most raucous and energetic live shows out there. In between touring, releasing two EPs, and dropping a full length album, Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo managed to collaborate with Steve Aoki to rework The Refused’s legendary track, “New Noise.”
And now with the formation of the The Bloody Beetroots DeathCrew 77, the band is evolving once again. In many ways, Bob is returning to his punk roots. Prior to his work as The Bloody Beetroots, Bob’s labor of love was Bob Rifo’s Gang, an electro-punk band he formed in 2005. Rifo also spent much of the last year recording and performing with Steve Aoki as a part of their hardcore side-project, Rifoki. It’s these influences that have bled into the Beetroots’ new live setup, and is a projection of where the band is heading.

About Dim Mak: Dim Mak started in 1996 as a whim and became a lifestyle. Launching with a 7″ from obscure SoCal hardcore ensemble Stickfigurecarousel, Dim Mak’s roster grew to include bands outside of hardcore and punk to garage rock and roll, disco punk, new wave, whatever it is that is explosive. The roster is a large and expanding one. There is no particular genre of music they corner other than what they know feels right. The point being is to just to release what they think is good regardless of style, which they have done again and again over the past 13 years.
