Published Dec 02, 2008He may not be Axl Rose, or a world famous rapper, but circuit-bending electro wizard Dan Deacon has spent a lot of time moving around the release date for his highly anticipated new album. Titled Bromst, the album follows the success of Deacon's beloved breakthrough album, Spiderman of the Rings, and is said to be a departure from that record's playful sound. Carpark Records has announced that it will issue the album on March 24.
Leading up to the release, Deacon has unveiled that he'll be touring the album with an ensemble, which will debut at the Brooklyn Masonic Temple in New York City on December 11. The 15-piece group includes Eric Beach (So Percussion), Denny Bowen (Double Dagger, Smarthgrowth), Jeremy Hyman (Ponytail, Ultimate Reality), Kevin O'Meara (Videohippos, Ultimate Reality), Rich O'Meara (ko'mm), Josh Quillen (So Percussion), Adam Sliwinski (So Percussion), Jason Treuting (So Percussion), Benny Boeldt (Adventure), William Cashion (Future Islands), Chester Gwazda (Nuclear Power Pants), Gerrit Welmers (Future Islands), Matt Papiach (Ecstatic Sunshine/White Williams), Ken Seeno (Ponytail) and, of course, Deacon. The show also has Dirty Projectors and So Percussion on the bill.
Though no Canadian shows have been announced, Deacon plans to tour the album with some incarnation of this ensemble next year.
