Gary Numan has announced North American tour dates this fall.

Following Sold Out shows in the UK, a main stage appearance at Sonisphere Festival and a tour of Australia and New Zealand, Numan is touring in support of his latest album “Splinter (Songs From A Broken Mind)”, which was released on his own label, Machine Music, in October 2013 and marked the artist’s return to the Billboard 200 for the first time in over 31 years. The album was recorded in England and completed at Numan’s home studio in Los Angeles, California, following his permanent move to the US at the end of 2012. Featuring some sublime guitar work from Nine Inch Nails guitarist Robin Finck, Mojo called the album “Numan’s finest hour.”

Watch the video for Symmetry Slice, the first music video from Octave Minds, combining 88 keys and 808 kicks by Boys Noize and Chilly Gonzales below via YouTube.
FADER said: “Octave Minds carry the cinematic spirit of their music over to into its multimedia presentation: the video for the track Symmetry Slice, embedded above, is the first in a series of videos directed by Berlin-based filmmaker Rolf Bremer. Making the most of leaving things out, the clip sets emotional parameters for the viewer, offering a dream-like sequence that suggests formative experience and mortality, but lets us draw our own verbalized narrative from the proceedings.”
