RHYE RELEASES STUNNING VISUALS FOR HYMN
ON FALL 2018 TOUR ACROSS ASIA AND THE US
BLOOD OUT NOW
Toronto, ON — October 2, 2018 — Rhye has shared the visual to Blood album track, Hymn. Co-directed and produced by Rhye’s Michael Milosh, and frequent creative partner, Genevieve Medow Jenkins, a nameless woman walks amongst rocky coves and mountainous cliffs of Big Sur and its neighbouring tranquil forest and waterfalls. The Hymn visual echoes the cinematic feeling of the song and provides visceral atmosphere to the Milosh's hauntingly ethereal voice.
Rhye's sophomore album, Blood, was released earlier this year to immense praise, with The Guardian calling it a "perfectly judged sepulchral take on R&B" and NME proclaimed to be a "triumph." Blood sees the rebirth of Rhye and Milosh coming into himself fully-formed while staying true to what NPR says is the "reserved, understated and brilliant soul" of the project. Noisey called it “an album to dance to…and one to bring close to your heart, to your perceptions and subjections. “Exclaim! called it “mood music” in their February 2018 issue where Rhye was featured as their cover story.
Rhye hits the road next month with across the US including dates with Jungle and Your Smith. See below for a complete list of dates.

A mosaic of emotive piano keys, physical percussion, buzzing analog synths, and expansive vocals, Rhye find humanity in musicality. Driven by this approach, the group quietly transformed into a phenomenon with the arrival of their 2013 debut, Woman. The record garnered acclaim from Rolling Stone, Spin, and Pitchfork who dubbed it Best New Album. Open would concurrently accumulate over 44.5 million Spotify streams, while The Fall surpassed 24.7 million. Along the way, they sold out theatres around the globe between standout festival sets at Coachella, Pitchfork, and a highlight concert in Denmark accompanied by a 49-piece all-girls choir. As the band began writing in 2016, this expansive live show indelibly impacted their second full-length album in 2017. The first single, Please, siphons a gorgeous vocal plea through a kaleidoscope of sparse percussion and piano that’s simultaneously stirring, stark, and sensual. It’s a new musical experience. It’s Rhye.
