Throughout 2008 and 2009 they self-recorded their first album, Dust on Common, which Wierd Records released in Nov. of 2009. In spring of 2010, they toured Europe with Xeno and Oaklander, playing shows in the UK, Belgium, Germany, the Czech Republic, and Italy. Subsequently they released a 7" and then the May EP on Captured Tracks. Led Er Est did a brief west coast run with The Soft Moon last fall and just played SXSW. On stage and in the studio Led Er Est create a thick wall of atmospheric soundscapes using vintage analog recording devices, samplers, and synths using sci-fi soundtracks and cold wave as reference points.
Following the release of The Diver, Led Er Est are proud to announce a run of East Coast tour dates, commencing with the Bunker showcase this Friday as part of the Northside Festival in New York City. In celebration of the tour, the band is sharing the brand new video for "Kaiyo Maru". Watch the video and check out the full itinerary below.
