Dave Sitek of TV on the Radio is working on a solo album with the name Maximum Balloon, according to a report in Pitchfork. It's due sometime in August via DGC/Interscope. It will include as-of-yet unamed guest vocalists. There are fresh MySpace and Facebook pages for the Dave Sitek effort, with more information to come at a later time.
With TV on the Radio on break, other band members are gettin' busy as well. Kyp Malone has been doing his solo thing as Rain Machine.
Check out his words on why they had to slow down on TV on the Radio. "Everybody went into it with the idea that we weren’t going to have to give over our lives completely, but then that kind of happened in a lot of ways for about six years consecutively" said Kyp Malone when speaking to Clash Music.
"Things that took time which were outside of the band had to be put to one side and not dealt with. We need to have time to live our lives, otherwise all the potential joy of that very fortunate work can disappear. It can just be work, and nobody wanted that so it was time to take a break."
