SSION announce European tour.

SSION. Euro tour.
19 April 2013

After ten years of releasing, producing and performing music, SSION will be embarking on their very first UK & European tour.

SSION is led by Kentucky-born Critcheloe, who is also known around NYC for applying a Ryan Trecartin video aesthetic to the collective’s dreamy pop dance numbers of an 80s Madonna vibe and Prince-like sensuality.
