After blowing out New Year's Eve at NYC's Hammerstein Ballroom, Matt and Kim wrapped nearly two years of headlining and selling out their biggest venues yet, while making waves with festival appearances around the world. Matt and Kim's extraordinary live show also earned the duo the mtvU Woodie Award for "Best Live Performance." With those high energy shows very much in mind, the indie dance duo wrote a true-to-Matt-and-Kim-style album with Lightning and are beyond anxious to hit the stage and share live versions with their fans. There will be plenty to dance to and shout along with when the latest songs, as well familiar crowd favorites, are brought to life in an all-new stage show.

Matt and Kim are bringing more than just an unforgettable dance party to each city. They are also bringing awareness to a cause that's dear to their hearts: the humane treatment of animals. At every stop along the tour, Matt and Kim have arranged to host that city's No Kill Animal Shelter in the venue lobby, giving concertgoers the opportunity to locate and learn how they can support their community's no-kill locations.

The NEW Matt and Kim Scream Team is a FREE fan club offering members reduced ticket service charges, pre-sale VIP packages, exclusive merchandise, content and more. The Scream Team launches at 3pm EST Monday July 30th at
