ADULT. announces tour with COLD CAVE, shares new single from tour exclusive 7"

ADULT. ANNOUNCES TOUR WITH COLD CAVE
SHARES 'SUBSURFACE' SINGLE FROM TOUR EXCLUSIVE 7"
LISTEN HERE
                                                                                                                    
DAIS records presents a  new 7" record from ADULT.  “Subsurface/Coming Apart.”  Created to be a special “tour exclusive” item for their North American dates with Cold Cave in Feb/March 2019.  The 45 rpm disc contains two brand new tracks that will also be presented live on the tour.

Each 7" contains a folded 14" x 14" poster created by ADULT.’s Nicola Kuperus, as well as being hand numbered and hand stamped with ADULT.’s logo across the B side label and jacket.

The release is limited to 500; 200 colored vinyl (Pepto-Bismol accident), 300 black vinyl.

Lyrics for both tracks adorn the labels. "Subsurface" waivers between cohesion and fractured staccato, investigating lyrically the banality of domesticity and the status quo.

"Coming Apart" is a departure for ADULT. musically in structure and speaks of the delicate, unkind balance of real human existence.

Foals Share New Song ‘On The Luna’

FOALS SHARE NEW SONG ‘ON THE LUNA’
 WATCH THE VIDEO HERE

CONFIRM HEADLING NORTH AMERICAN TOUR 
WITH SUPPORT FROM BEAR HANDS, PREOCCUPATIONS, OMNI, AND KIEV

LAUNCH DUAL ALBUM PROJECT WITH MARCH 8TH RELEASE OF
EVERYTHING NOT SAVED WILL BE LOST – PART 1

PART 2 TO FOLLOW IN AUTUMN 

 
Today, Foals unveils “On The Luna,” a second track from their highly anticipated forthcoming album, Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost- Part 1 (March 8th, Warner Music). To coincide with the release of the strident new song, the band also releases an observational, documentary style music video which blends the visceral energy of their live show with intimate, behind-the-scenes footage from the ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost’ sessions. Watch the new music video for “On The Luna” here.

Recently, Foals confirmed support from Bear Hands, Preoccupations, Omni, and Kiev on their twenty-date headlining US tour. Bear Hands will provide direct support, with Kiev opening, on the first leg of the tour in cities including Portland, Seattle, Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Preoccupations will provide direct support, with Omni opening, on the second leg in cities including Brooklyn, Washington D.C., Boston, and Philadelphia (full details below). Due to high demand, Foals recently added a third NYC show at Brooklyn Steel on April 12, and a second Washington D.C. show at 9:30 Club on April 18. The initial Brooklyn Steel and 9:30 Club dates sold out in under 24 hours, and the band has also sold out their show in San Diego. Tickets for all dates are on sale now here. The band will also perform a headline tour throughout the UK and Europe, and have sold out shows in cities including London, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, and Glasgow (full dates below). Twickets is the official ticket resale partner of the tour. To combat touts, resale is restricted to no more than face value. Buying or selling tickets on any other resale platform is strictly prohibited. Learn more here. The band has previously confirmed festival dates throughout North America including Mexico’s Vive Latino 2019 and Atlanta’s Shaky Knees Festival.

Foals have announced that they will return with two new albums in 2019:  Everythings Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 1 & 2, a pair of releases, separate but related, they share a title, themes and artwork. ‘Part 1’ will be released on March 8th, with ‘Part 2’ following in the Autumn. From playing chaotic house parties in their home city of Oxford to becoming major festival headliners across Europe, Foals’ trajectory has been remarkable. They’ve earned critical acclaim (NME and Q Award wins, plus Mercury Prize, Ivor Novello and BRIT Award nominations) and fan devotion (1.7 million sales of their four Gold-certified albums, plus over half a billion streams at Spotify since 2015) in equal measure. Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 1 is now available to pre-order here, with lead single, “Exits,” provided as an instant download.

The band have also shared the music video for Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 1’s lead track, “Exits,” which was directed by Albert Moya, features actors Isaac Hempstead-Wright and Christa Théret, and was produced by CANADA. Watch it here.

Profoundly tethered but possessing their own personalities, the two forthcoming albums capture the most compelling, ambitious and cohesive creations that Foals – completed by Jimmy Smith (guitar), Jack Bevan (drums) and Edwin Congreave (keys) – have ever produced. “They’re two halves of the same locket,” frontman Yannis Philippakis explains. “They can be listened to and appreciated individually, but fundamentally, they are companion pieces.”

Eager to break the traditional pop song structure which they felt they were becoming increasingly tapered to, the 20 tracks defy expectation. There are exploratory, progressive-tinged tracks which occasionally break the 10-minute mark alongside atmospheric segues which make the music an experience rather than a mere collection of songs.  Yet the band’s renowned ability to wield relentless grooves with striking power also reaches new heights.

Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 1 tracklisting:


1. Moonlight
2. Exits
3. White Onions
4. In Degrees
5. Syrups
6. On The Luna
7. Cafe D'Athens

My Brightest Diamond Releases "Another Chance" Video + Curates Valentine's Day Playlist for The Talkhouse

Introducing: My Brightest Diamond’s “Another Chance”

The premiere of a new music video, plus a playlist of songs that inspired the track.


 
As a teenager, the song “Sweet Thing” with Rufus and Chaka Khan was played often on Detroit radio, and I always loved it.  After my divorce, I was trying to imagine what Love could look like for me, how I might move forward accepting the love that had been in my life without disparaging it, but not wanting to repeat scenarios or mistakes I had made. I dreamed of having a Love like the kind was described in “Sweet Thing,” and made an explicit reference to that in my song “Another Chance.” The playlist continues to grow and grow.
—Shara Nova

Watch the new Video for "Another Chance" HERE

...A fiercely individualist artist who’s making fiercely individual music.


Nova is directed and moody during these 10 tracks, making the sort of sulky party music that is the specialty of Troye Sivan or Robyn.


...self-discovery through communal groove…


Shouting, chanting, and crooning with cool flair...



With more love from...
