Apples In Stereo Announce New Magnetic Wonder Tour Dates + MP3
By: Spacelab Research Staff Apples In Stereo have announced their new tour dates for Winter of 2007. They'll release their new album, New Magnetic Wonder, on February 7th, 2007 through Simian Records and a little help from Yep Roc Records and Redeye Distribution. The album will feature lots of appearances from Elephant 6 people and friends, like Jeff Magnum, Bill Doss, Will Hart and John Fernandes; ex-member Hilarie Sidney wrote two of the songs on the album.
Here's the statement they unleashed via the web: "We'll be heading out on the road with our new touring group, featuring original Apples in stereo members Robert Schneider, John Hill, and Eric Allen, and new touring members including Elephant 6 co-founder Bill Doss (Olivia Tremor Control, Sunshine Fix), John Dufilho (Deathray Davies), and John Ferguson (Ulysses, Big Fresh).
Apples In Stereo used Bryce Goggin (Pavement, Sebadoh, Phish, Sean Lennon) for the studio knob twiddling, as he was also the the man behind the mixing on the previous Apples In Stereo album Velocity of Sound. And the band put the studio to the test, with Rob Schneider using up to 96 tracks of sound on some songs, including Same Old Drag. It was so processor intensive, they kept crashing Bryce Goggins's Pro Tools rig.
"Finishing this record took every joule of energy I had. There were so many different sounds and ideas bouncing around in my head, and such strong feelings to get across. With Velocity of Sound, I returned to the rawness of our live shows and the fuzzy vibe of our early four-track recordings. This time I wanted to make a record that really meant something, that felt life affirming and real, yet ultra hi-fi and unreal at the same time. Apparently that kind of record is not technically feasible," said Rob Schneider when talking about the process of completing the album.
