Big Data has announced a headline tour to coincide with the release of his debut album for Warner Bros. Records, 2.0. The tour will kick off on release date March 24 with a blowout bash at Bowery Ballroom in NYC. Big Data will then hit the road with Chicago dream pop act ON AN ON and Brooklyn’s own CHAPPO. Tickets will be on sale at 10am local time in all markets on Friday, January 16.
Big Data’s smash hit single, “Dangerous (feat. Joywave),” has spent the past 44 weeks straight at Modern Rock. After being one of the longest charting songs at that format in 2014, “Dangerous” is preparing to impact at Top 40 early next month. The track rocketed up to #1 on the Alternative chart at Billboard and has amassed millions of plays at Spotify. Big Data made their television debut playing “Dangerous” on Late Night with Seth Meyers and has been featured in the Wall Street Journal and Entertainment Weekly, named one of Rolling Stone’s “10 New Artists You Need to Know” and picked for USA Today’s “On the Verge” spotlight. The video for “Dangerous” has already racked up over 4.5 million views on YouTube.
The band’s new album, 2.0, will be released on Warner Bros. Records on March 24, 2015. Alan Wilkis, the big brain behind Big Data, spent the fall writing and recording with a panoply of artists from all genres including Twin Shadow, White Sea, Jenn Wasner of Wye Oak, Dylan Rau and Ted Feldman from Bear Hands, Jamie Lidell and Kimbra.
Big Data have previously toured as opening support for both La Roux and Fitz & the Tantrums.

Big Data, masterminded by New York native Alan Wilkis, is known for creating paranoid electronic music that deals with the nature of the interaction between man and machine. Artist Graham Roberts, designer for the New York Times, created a unique kind of bio for Big Data – an infographic with details about Wilkis’ background, origin of his moniker and more.
Big Data is a paranoid electronic music project from the Internet, formed out of a general distrust for technology and The Cloud (despite a growing dependence on them). Helmed by producer, Alan Wilkis, Big Data aims to explore the relationship between man and machine, and how the internet has reshaped the human experience.
