The Korean-only release, Swallow The Sun finds the band touring with the Seoul-based band Goonam. Dengue Fever and Goonam toured together earlier this year in the Western United States and recorded an E.P. that will be released in 2015. Asian tour dates for Dengue Fever are as follows:
11/23/14 @ Sangsang Madang, Seoul, Korea (with Goonam)
11/26/14 @ Moon Romantic, Tokyo, Japan (with Goonam)
11/28/14 @ Clockenflap Multimedia Arts and Music Festival, Hong Kong
Dengue Fever has toured extensively in South East Asia and the world throughout the years with stops in Cambodia, Vietnam, Hong Kong and Laos. However this pop-up tour was necessitated by a wildly popular television show SNL Korea that featured the Dengue Fever track “Integratron” off their 2008 release Venus on Earth on multiple episodes. The song has been used in several sketches parodying the video game Grand Theft Auto and fans began peppering social media asking the band to perform live in Seoul.

Dengue Fever will be announcing North American 2015 tour dates shortly.
