Man Forever announces solo EU tour for March 2019

“There’s clarity throughout, even when drums overlap and rhythms blur, as well as a precision that gives a sense of purpose to every move.” – Pitchfork

“Relentlessly dynamic front-and-center percussive maximalism.” – Village Voice

“John Colpitts (i.e., Man Forever) often electrifies and sends percussive shockwaves undulating through stratified sonic layers of drones, jazz, polymetric playfulness, and hypnotic minimalism.” – Modern Drummer

Luminary composer and multi-instrumentalist John Colpitts (Kid MillionsOneida) has announced a string of European tour dates for his Man Foreverproject this March. Performing solo, Colpitts will present a new audio-visual show that investigates his recent experience of being involved in a traumatic car accident. Following the tour, Colpitts will be releasing a new collaborative album with fellow multi-instrumentalist Greg Fox (Liturgy, Guardian Alien) as Fox Millions Duo this spring, more news to follow soon.

The music of John Colpitts as Man Forever is explorative, innovative and fearless. A musician and composer equally versed in the disparate musical languages of DIY rock, improvisation, and contemporary classical, Colpitts has made an album that defies genre classification. Driving, elaborate drum arrangements (created with TIGUE Percussion) remain essential to Man Forever. On latest release Play What They Want, songs are augmented by voice and melody with contributions from Laurie AndersonYo La Tengo, and Mary Lattimore to name a few. Play What They Want represents the culmination of 25 years of musical engagement by one of New York’s most acclaimed percussionists.
