Bass enthusiast and lover of all things hard as shit, Figure has announced a very special run of fall shows being dubbed "Terrorvision" kicking off October 17th. These run of shows will be unlike any peformance you've seen to date with Figure incorporating horror film footage to every single one of the songs in his sets. The partnership with Rane / Serato is certainly something you don't want to miss as it will be a unique live visual experience, which is inspired from his Monsters themes. Look at the teaser of the tour below and read what Figure had to say about the upcoming string of shows. Tour dates for the entire run are listed below with some exclusive limited pre-sale tickets available for purchase today while supplies last. Also you can expect Figure's upcoming Monsters volume 5 dorpping on October 14th.
Here is a quote from Figure himself about his vision of the tour.
Terrorvision has been a concept I've been putting together for some time now, something I thought would go really well with my annual Monsters series.
I wanted to create the ability to compile tons of custom edited clips the same way I have compiled tons of music for my sets over the years. I'm a horror buff and I've amassed an extensive collection of classic shock theatre and obscure films which is definitely an inspiration for the visual direction on this tour.
Through partnering with Rane/Serato and using their hardware I now have the ability to map these custom visuals to my music on the fly, adding a brand new element to my live show. Many artists look at visuals as a way to simply customize the blank slates of wall behind them. With Terrorvision it's another dimension of my music. An intense visual backdrop giving my fans a window into where i draw inspiration; my vision as a producer, coming together on stage where the visuals brings it all to life.

This heater is being handed out as a free download and I strongly urge you to add this release to your music library as soon as possible. Enjoy
