Chicago-born electronic dance music group Krewella may hail from the Windy City but they love the Magic City. The group is returning to Miami to play the Fillmore and LIV Nightclub in Miami Beach after having already played Miami several times this year including well-received performances at Ultra Music Festival and the iHeartRadio Pool Party. Friday’s show is just one of their many stops on their Get Wet tour in support of their first full-length album which came out earlier this year. We spoke to bandmates Jahan Yousaf, Yasmine Yousaf and Rain Man to tell us more about their new music and the tour.

Energetic, emotional, heavy, sexy.
Tell us a little bit about your new album Get Wet.
We’ve spent the last year working on it. We’re really excited about it. It’s got a few collabs on there that we’re really stoked about. It’s got 12 songs on it and just came out in September.
How do you think your sound has evolved on the new album in comparison to your older material?
Our first body of work that we put out was an EP so this is our first album we’re putting out. I’ll say we’ve put a lot more time crafting our lyrics and working on the production more. I think it’s better written, the production is more on point too. It takes you on a journey. There’s different emotions in every single track; I think people will be attached to at least one track on the album.
What do you like most about Miami?
The party scene here, there’s really good clubs here. When we played Ultra, the entire week everyone was out the entire day every single day from morning till night. We didn’t sleep.
Tell us a little bit about your tour.
It’s our first bus tour, our first original production headlining a tour. 60 dates over 70 days. We get 2 days off every week.
Are you worried about having such a busy tour schedule?
[A bus tour] is going to be so much better than flying. We’re so sick of flying and going through security. I think we’re going to get more sleep on the road when we’re traveling by bus.
