JUNO Award winning electro-pop trio Dragonette is returning to Halifax in support of their upcoming third album Bodyparts, due out Sept. 25 (Universal Music), at the Multipurpose Centre on Wednesday, Sept. 5 at 8 p.m.

Consisting of singer-songwriter Martina Sorbara, bassist and producer Dan Kurtz (The New Deal) and drummer Joel Stouffer, Dragonette took home the 2012 JUNO Award for Dance Recording of the Year for the song “Hello”.   The single featuring French DJ Martin Solveig garnered their album Fixin To Thrill international popularity.

“The sound of the 80s thrown through a hot pink time machine into 2010; this is pop at its glossiest, its best and without doubt its groin-itchingly sexiest.” - BBC

Dragonette’s first single from Bodyparts, “Let It Go,” was released earlier this year.  The band hasgraduated to a more complex, sophisticated sound; one that has all of the trademark hooks of their earlier electro-pop hits combined with a new depth of feeling.

Sorbara and Kurtz originally met in Halifax before starting Dragonette and eventually getting married. The band announced their North American tour today after performing on ABC’s “Good Morning America” Summer Concert Series.

Tickets are $32 advance and $37 day of show (including tax and fees) and go on sale this Friday, July 27 at 10 a.m.  Tickets will be available at the Halifax Forum, at all Ticketpro outlets, by phone at 1-888-311-9090 and online at
