Frog Eyes Add More Tour Dates For Upcoming Tears Of The Valedictorian Release + MP3

 

By: Spacelab Research Staff
The tour and the new album, and thus, the new Frog Eyes revolution officially begins on May 1st. It's Frog Eyes new phase, with the band using a producer for the first time. They also wrote all of the songs on the road and recorded them after the tour was over, giving them a chance to record well reheased and tight sounding tracks.

They're touring with Alex Delivery, Chris Garneau, Himalayan Bear, Pit er Pat, Priestbird and Yeasayer depending on location.

The album is on Absolutely Kosher and will feature a lineup of Carey Mercer, Melanie Campbell, Michael Rak, Spencer Krug, and Mccloud Zicmuse. It was co-produced by Daryl Smith and Carey Mercer. Tears Of The Valedictorian will be the first new Frog eyes materal since last summer's The Future Is Inter-Disciplinary Or Not At All EP, which was released by Acuarela.

"Dan Bejar once suggested to me that all of my art is crumbling into that most classic and vaunted of forms: the drunken speech of the deposed dictator. Tears was mastered a little quieter than Californication, and therefore will not get as much radio play," said Carey Mercer when speaking to Pitchfork about the new album.
