Melbourne Australia's psychedelic indie-electronic adventurers Miami Horror are pleased to announce the release of their debut, Illumination, out August 24th. The release comes at the heels of two years of teeth-cutting live shows. In conjunction with the album release, they'll be bringing their live show to the states throughout September.

While Miami Horror began as just one synthesizer-obsessed producer huddled over a laptop, mastermind Ben Plant rewired Miami Horror's genetic makeup, depositing the talents of Josh Moriarty, Aaron Shanahan & Daniel Whitechurch to form a new live band persona.

And it worked. Since the switch, Miami Horror has played unmissable sets at Australia's biggest festivals, not to mention some A-list support slot call ups for everyone from Phoenix, Friendly Fires and La Roux to a hand-picked hook up from Lily Allen.

Hunkering down in Ben's home studio in Melbourne, Illumination's recording saw them call in a cast of guest stars, including Swedish singer MAI, Melbourne based chanteuse Kimbra, Dappled Cities' wordsmith Tim Derricourt for a lyrical assist and also Neon Indian & Vega prodigy Alan Palomo, who added his distinctive haze to multiple tunes.

Be sure to take a listen to the album, streaming at, and catch Miami Horror when they make their way stateside!
