Published Mar 11, 2009Following the release of their Exclaim!-approved Dance Mother LP, Brooklyn's electronically-charged Telepathe have announced a fresh string of North American tour dates. Come April, the duo will hop aboard Ladytron and the Faint's joint tour and make several live stops in the U.S. and Canada, including one in Toronto on April 6 and another in Montreal the following day.
As previously reported, Telepathe's recently released Dance Mother features TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek lending his increasingly skilled production hand to the record, as well as some guest vocal spots from TVOTR's Kip Malone and !!!'s Shannon Funchess. In a recent interview with Exclaim!, the group's Melissa Livaudais said of their choice of producer: "We were looking for someone that could think outside the box, someone who could think beyond nu-disco and indie rock. This person is Dave Sitek. He absolutely despises indie rock and he never questioned our vision. He only wanted to take our vision and make it sound infinite."
Livaudais also said to expect a whole lot of bass from their live show, and we wouldn't be surprised if there was a bit of dancing thrown in as well.
