Andrew Bayer's latest EP, Do Androids Dream, has been purpose built with his fans' emotions in mind. Composed specifically for his tour of the same name, he has been using these songs over the past month to definitively define the atmosphere of his live shows. Revealing parts 1 and 2 on Facebook for the first time on March 17th, Bayer explained that "the aim was to craft something that had an emotional journey to it... I wanted to take longer with the arrangements, take a step back, and have something progress".
Since he first began teasing the tracks,many of his fans have been wondering when the final song, part 3, would be released—and when they'd be able to hear the whole EP live. Those who caught his set at Ultra would have been the first to experience the complete album in big sound (along with a few exclusive mixes). For the rest of his loyal Anjunabeats followers, however, the remaining dates in his tour have remained a mystery. Until now, that is.
Beginning on April 16th, Bayer with be coursing a track across North America and bringing the Do Androids Dream experience in tow. Celebrities in Vancouver, Soundbar in Chicago, and nine other venues (detailed below) will all be playing host to the second part of his tour.
His third and final opener, "Do Androids Dream Part 3", is available here for you stream first. Speaking to THUMP, Bayer had this to say about his conclusion to the Do Androids Dream EP:
"'Do Androids Dream Part 3' is the closing segment on the EP. It revisits themes in both parts 1 and 2 in reimagined ways, and keeps the hopeful tone of the piece intact. Part 3 is suitably split into 3 sections as well: the opening delicate piano theme which was written to transition out of the end of "Tomorrow Boys."
