Showtek Announce AMEN EP on Skink/Armada & AMEN North American Tour
Showtek are back with the release of two tracks off their new AMEN EP out today via Skink/Armada. Included are the title track “Amen” featuringFreetown Collective, whom Showtek worked with previously on the 2016 smash hit ‘Believer’. ‘Amen’ has been dominating festival main stages all summer, along with “Don’t Shoot” featuringGC. Also announced today is their AMEN North American Tour.
Taking a stance with their music, “Amen” is a Caribbean inspired track that grabs you after one listen, while “Don’t Shoot” is a more traditional Showtek release filled with fan favorite heavy bass and drops. Written in conjunction with vocalist GC in the midst of the recent protests against Police violence, both Showtek and GC have provided statements concerning the inspiration and reasoning behind their collaboration on ‘Don’t Shoot’.
“Even though we ourselves haven’t gone through this injustice, or can even relate to how hard it must be, we work closely with diverse cultures and people that have lived these struggles. We can make their voice heard by reaching out to millions of people with our music. We aim to be an example that everyone is united, we are one people, coming together without prejudice.”
“Born and raised in Kingston and currently residing in New York, I can relate to the senseless misuse of power by those who have been given the responsibility. Living in such multicultural cities, I have also been personally affected by such injustice and violence. I am blessed to be able to advocate for these issues we face in America through music, but there are others without a voice. Far too many have lost their lives as a result of these unjust shootings. On the heels of the senseless slaying of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and countless other young lives cut short by police misconduct and gun violence. I felt it was important to bring awareness and at the same time spread a message of hope with the platform we have been blessed with.”
Both tracks are already set to make a major splash this summer on their AMEN North American Tour, encompassing 20+ dates including stops in Los Angeles, New York, Toronto, San Francisco, Boston, Vancouver, Miami, Chicago, Atlanta and more…
Biography: Wouter and Sjoerd Janssen, aka Showtek, two brothers from Eindhoven have been making music for over a decade. In 2012 they exploded onto the global dance scene with the release of ‘Cannonball’, which resulted in a new worldwide following and countless fans across the world. Soon after came ‘Booyah’, a track encompassing Showtek’s true sound, calling everyone to attention. The result? A top 5 spot in the UK singles chart and their first worldwide major hit. Other recent successes include “Bad” a collaboration with David Guetta, which now has over 1 Billion total combined views/streams online, and the 2016 collaboration with Major Lazer titled “Believer”, which has over 80 million total combined views/streams online. Over the past two years Showtek has become more than an act. It’s a movement brought together by the producer duo and their fans. United by a love for music, excitement, artistic freedom and adventure.
