It’s a little weird, but also a little cool.

Klaxons, a London-based indie rock band, has just announced it will embark on a British tour in October that is claimed to be a world’s first – all the equipment needed for the tour, instruments included, will be created using a 3D printer.

Jamie Reynolds, James Righton and Simon Taylor-Davis are Klaxons, a band formed in 2005 and credited with leading the “new rave” genre. They are readying the release of its third album, Love Frequency, on June 16 (a pre-release album stream is available via The Guardian).

The group has just announced a tour to promote the new album, kicking off in late October and including nine dates across Britain.

But the tour comes with a twist: The band has commissioned SJA 3D Printing to ensure that everything from guitars and microphones to amps and lights will be made using state-of-the-art 3D printing techniques. — AFP Relaxnews
