Following a deal with Anti-, an upcoming album and North American tour, Dead Man's Bones are kicking their promotion machine into high gear. However, they're not exactly going about it in typical fashion, at least not on the live front.
First, the project helmed by actors Ryan Gosling and Zach Shields announced that each of their tour stops would feature local children's choirs and talent shows, and now the guys have revealed that they're also doing a residency at a puppet theatre. Yep, a puppet theatre.
In September, Dead Man's Bones will be doing three guaranteed-to-be-special shows at the Bob Baker Marionette Theater in L.A. According to the press release, "The residency will showcase a unique collaboration between the theater and the band. The band scored and directed these performances, and will be providing the soundtrack to an unusual and remarkable spectacle."
The trio of dates at the theatre - on September 11, 18 and 25 - will feature the band and the Silverlake Conservatory Children's Choir, who also contributed to the Dead Man's Bones album, as well as a lot of puppets, of course.
There is no word if Dead Man's Bones have plans to set up a similar residency in Canada but they are playing several dates in the Great White North, including Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. (A full list of dates can be found here.)
As for that record, it's due out October 6 via Anti-.
