Dengue Fever To Tour Cambodia in February
Dengue Fever has announced a week-long tour of Cambodia this February. Promoting its latest album, The Deepest Lake, the LA-based Cambodian-American rock band will be performing a series of dates around the Kingdom, including a live TV appearance on the national Cambodian Television Network (CTN).
Having previously toured the country to sell-out crowds, most recently in 2011 and 2013, the band will be assured a warm welcome. The eclectic style, blending classic Cambodian 60s pop, psychedelic rock, Afro beats and surf garage, consistently proves popular with an equally eclectic fanbase. The Deepest Lake experiments with even more diverse musical influences, taking in rap, Latin and horns, among others. This latest departure as well as reflecting the artists’ current musical interests will also appeal to an ever-broader demographic.
The six-piece band formed in Long Beach, California in 2001, after founding members Zac and Ethan Holtzman returned from a tour of Cambodia, The brothers unearthed lead singer Chhom Nimol singing in a Karaoke nightclub in Little Phnom Penh on Long Beach. The band’s first album, the self-titled Dengue Fever, was released two years later, followed by a further eight albums and EPs, The Deepest Lake marking their tenth release.
The 2016 Cambodian tour follows on from the band’s 2015 tours of the US, Canada and Europe to promote The Deepest Lake. So far, four dates have been confirmed, Feb. 17 at the FCC Angkor in Siem Reap, Feb. 19 and 20 at the FCC Phnom Penh and the CTV live broadcast performance on Feb. 21. For those unable to attend the gigs or watch the television show, there is a chance that additional dates will be added to the itinerary.
