PlugInMusic.com is giving away two autographed copies of Datarock's new album, "Red." Enter now for your chance to win!

In celebration of their sophomore album "Red" (out September 1st), Datarock is taking over North America with a 26-city tour that begins on Friday, August 28th in Montreal and ends on Saturday, October 3rd in Seattle. In the midst of sell-out dates across London and Australia, the Norwegian rockers made a quick stop in the US last month and gave packed audiences in Los Angeles and San Francisco a sneak preview of what they can expect from 5-week tour...same tracksuits, more songs, bigger show.

Meanwhile, reviews of "Red" have started to pile in from abroad. Uncut gave the album 4 stars, and Artrocker said, "As comfortable with retro trappings as they are with exploratory modernism, the 'Rock have made one of the bolder second albums of recent times." InTheNews.co.uk stated, "Red has the potential to elevate Datarock beyond the cult appeal of their first album."

Datarock also revealed their latest video for the track "True Stories" on Spin.
