The Bloody Beetroots announce fall tour with live drummer

Since forming as a two-man DJ tandem in Italy back in late 2006, The Bloody Beetroots have revolutionized the dance floor. Blending the lines between house, techno, and hardcore punk, the duo have brought a sense of danger to the club and challenged the idea of “dance music”; in a recent interview, Busy P asserted that The Bloody Beetroots “are at the root of the problem” with punk rock invading dance clubs.

The Beetroots are more than happy to bring stage diving to unsuspecting clubs worldwide. Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo, the creative force behind the tandem, and fellow DJ Tommy Tea are now adding Edward Grinch to form The Bloody Beetroots DeathCrew 77. And this new creation is even more explosive than the Power Rangers Megazord.  Rifo now mans the guitar, bass, and synths with Tommy Tea on controllers and Grinch on drums. Still playing much of the early material, the trio now reinterprets the bangers with an aggression and energy that is just not possible while stationed behind a mixer. The videos below demonstrate the group’s new look.

And now US audiences can see what all this commotion is really about. After Rifo and Tommy Tea play an exclusive DJ set at Miami’s Mansion on October 13th, the DeathCrew will head to New York and begin a tour encompassing the rest of October and early November. While the stage presence for the upcoming tour has greatly expanded, the setting will remain intimate and undoubtedly turn quite raucous. A complete list of dates follows, and if you happen to live in Texas, California, or Vancouver, you have the privilege of experiencing the event more than once.
