ON THE MODERN ART TOUR AND PERFORMING AT SxSW 2012
Starting today, Geographer’s fans will be able to stream the San Francisco trio’s colossal record MYTH exclusively on PasteMagazine.com HERE. MYTH, which will drop on Tuesday, February 28th via Modern Art Records in conjunction with Warner Music’s Independent Label Group, is available for pre-order via iTunes HERE. The deluxe edition of MYTH, which includes demos and bonus tracks, is also available for pre-order on iTunes HERE.
Geographer’s single “Kites,” and the track’s music video will premiere on MTV come this Friday, February 24th via the network’s MTV2’s 120 Minutes and MTV Buzzworthy Blog. A teaser for the “Kites” video was just released on the band’s social networking sites and via You Tube, which you can watch HERE. The video was directed by David Dutton of Dutton Films and incorporates some incredible special effects.
After touring nationally with Ladytron and Stars, showcasing at major music festivals Noise Pop and the main stage at Treasure Island Music Festival 2011 Geographer teamed up with producer Eli Crews (tUnE-yArDs, Beulah, Why?, Deerhoof) and renowned mixer Chris Zane (Passion Pit, The Walkmen, Holy Ghost!, Tokyo Police Club) toscrupulouslycraft MYTH. On MYTH, Mike Deni’s distinct melodic vocals flirt with his dazed synth melodies and alluring guitar riffs; while Nathan Blaz’s haunting electric cello cords, and Brian Ostreicher’s vibrant drums blend together to help create the mind-altering, ten track album that is pulsating with complex poly-rhythms and stunning harmonies.
The band will showcase at this year’s SxSW after garnering amazing praise from Huffington Post as, “Buzz Bands of SxSW” and “Bands You SHOULD See at SxSW” for last year’s performances. Geographer’s upcoming SxSW shows will intertwine with the band embarking on THE MODERN ART TOUR, a 24 date, US city run that kicks-off on March 1st in Seattle, and will feature headliner Miniature Tigers and support bands The Chain Gang Of 1974, SPEAK, and Pretty & Nice.
