The hip hop super-duo Run The Jewels (aka rappers El-P and Killer Mike) has announced their Jewel Runner Fall U.S. tour, tickets for which are available now @ www.runthejewels.net, via a special pre-sale promotion with Songkick and Spotify. The group will be touring in continued support of RTJ2, their breakout sophomore album on Mass Appeal Records and one of the most celebrated releases of the past year, receiving Album of the Year honors from Pitchfork, Stereogum and more.

The announcement lands among a flurry of critically lauded performances (Billboard declared their Coachella set the #2 performance of the entire festival), a sold out show at The Forum in London on June 6th, and an impressive slate of festival appearances this summer, including Northside, Bonnaroo, Pitchfork, Primavera, Glastonbury, Roskilde, Reading, Leeds, FYF and more. Main support for the tour will be rising star & Grammy Award-winning producer BOOTS, who has previously collaborated with RTJ, Beyonce and Autolux, amongst others. Additional support to be announced soon.

Meanwhile accolades continue pouring in for the group they were recently named among Fast Company’s Most Creative People in Business, and extensive features have run in Newsweek, The Guardian, BUST, and a cover story in the inaugural issue of FLOOD Magazine. Additionally, Killer Mike was recently a guest at The White House Correspondents Dinner, appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher, and on Snoop Dogg’s weekly show, GGN.

The ever-expanding Run the Jewels universe also recently added a 3rd RTJ-inspired Marvel Comics cover, this time for Deadpool’s Secret Wars, and their song “Blockbuster Night Pt. 1” was featured on the season premier of HBO’s hit show Silicon Valley.

Not content with merely performing in front of an ever-growing fan-base,  the duo have been hard at work on new material for their forthcoming full length, RTJ3 (see here), as well as the highly anticipated feline-themed remix album Meow The Jewels (see here), a bevy of hi-profile collaborations, and some soon-to-be-announced special partnerships.
