TAMPA, FL – Continuing a landmark 2019 highlighted by one milestone after another, Denver-based artist Nick Miller—known professionally as ILLENIUM—will release his third full-length studio album, ASCEND, on August 16 via Astralwerks. A digital pre-order just went live today on ILLENIUM.com.
In tandem with the announcement of new music, he also reveals the details for his biggest North American headline run to date, The ASCEND Tour. Produced by AEG Presents, the arena jaunt will play to well over 250,000 fans in 30 cities as he canvases the country for his largest audiences ever. The tour comes to Tampa’s Yuengling Center on Saturday, October 19 at 8:00 PM.
Beginning today, fans who pre-order ASCEND at ILLENIUM.com will receive early access to purchase tickets for the tour starting June 19 at 10:00 AM local time. American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Wednesday, June 19 at 12:00 PM local time through Thursday, June 20 at 10:00 PM local time. The general on-sale begins June 21 for all dates except for Indianapolis, Austin, Dallas & Houston, which go on sale June 28.
ASCEND represents a wide scope of ILLENIUM’s expansive, entrancing, and engaging vision. Once again, he elevates his signature sound with majestic melodies, intriguing instrumentation, and genre-defying songcraft. He introduced this chapter by way of the latest single “Good Things Fall Apart” with Jon Bellion. Straight out of the gate, it blasted off with stratospheric success. During its first week at radio, it became “#1 Most Added at Alternative.” Additionally, it debuted at #13 on the Billboard Dance chart. To date, total streams have surpassed 22 million and counting. Attracting acclaim, Billboard dubbed it, “a happy slice of emo-inspired with a side of radio pop.”

“Good Things Fall Apart” followed hot on the heels of two explosive anthems from ILLENIUM. To date, his single “Crashing” featuring Bahari has amassed nearly 40 million total streams. Meanwhile, the follow-up “Pray” featuring Kameron Alexander soundtracked a new HBO documentary. Plus, the recent “Pray” remix package engendered enthusiastic critical acclaim. Dancing Astronaut placed it on an NMF Roundup. YourEDM praised it as “intensely varied,” while RunTheTrap proclaimed it, “a phenomenal remix pack.”
This month, he’s set to touch down in George, WA for Paradiso Festival, followed by Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, before continuing his Las Vegas residency at Hakkasan.
ILLENIUM creates immersive emotional experiences, displaying an adeptness for crafting aural arrangements that vary in style, beauty, complexity and depth. With two full-length albums to his credit and sundry singles and remixes, he has surpassed the one billion stream mark across his discography.
His debut album, Ashes, was released to critical acclaim in early 2016. Awake followed in 2017 and hit #1 on in the iTunes Electronic Dance Charts in 12 countries. Named one of the “10 Best Dance/Electronic Albums of 2017” by Billboard, it included such singles as “Feel Good” (with Gryffin featuring Daya) and “Crawl Outta Love.” Praising the album as “a gorgeous collection of future bass, piercing vocals, and barefaced lyrics,” Dancing Astronaut said, “While it might seem premature to call an album a ‘masterpiece,’ no other title would fit Awake so well.” Billboard observed, “The phoenix is ILLENIUM 's mascot, and Awake is the emergent moment of that story.”
