ATLAS SOUND TO TOUR WITH BROADCAST

‘LOGOS' OUT OCTOBER 20, 2009 ON KRANKY

 

Beginning next week, Atlanta's Atlas Sound and Birmingham, England's Broadcast are teaming up for an extensive North American tour.  Both groups are touring in support of new material surfacing this month.

Atlas Sound will be releasing Logos on October 20th via Kranky.  Bradford Cox, the force behind Atlas Sound, explains that in contrast to his “introverted” debut album, this follow-up includes collaborations and takes on a more “panoramic view.”  Logos collaborators include Animal Collective's Noah Lennox and Stereolab's Laetitia Sadier.  Cox also describes the album as being “like a live album” as every song was recorded in one take, a strong testament to the talent Cox has in a live setting.

This will be Broadcast's first tour in North American since 2005, and their sets will be a stripped down, ‘duet' of sorts, with Trish Keenan and James Cargill performing new work as well as Broadcast classics.  Speaking about the new material, Trish had the following to say:  “Okay people...Broadcast and The Focus Group have joined hands to create a new EP of seancing songs and witch cult rumbles.”  Broadcast and the Focus Group Investigate Witch Cults of the Radio Age
is out now on iTunes and will be available on CD/LP later this month.

The co-headlined tour will see both bands trading off set times, with The Selmanaires taking the opening slot each night.
