The 7 dates on the 7 Depths Of Consciousness tour are set to feature an all new stage performance, accompanied by new film presentations and a set of 7 remixed tracks.

The duo have released a trailer to accompany the news and say in a statement: “What makes man different from others is that he is aware of himself – he is able to reflect upon himself and analyse how his environment influences him.

“Millions of years of evolution has passed and the exploration of consciousness seems to have been forgotten. Are you ready to expand your consciousness?”

Tickets are available via Nordic Giants’ website, with confirmed shows as follows:

Nov 11th: Torrington, Plough Arts Centre
Nov 12th: London, Hoxton Hall
Nov 14th: Manchester, Victoria Warehouse
