It Came From The Dancefloor
The duo kicks off the party Jan. 29 at The Social in Toronto and will keep it rolling through early March.
Stops confirmed so far include New York City’s Sullivan Room (Jan. 30), Sky Lounge in Austin (Feb. 6), Hifi Club in Calgary, Alberta (Feb. 9), Viper Room in West Hollywood, Calif. (Feb. 11), and The Hard Pop in Juarez, Mexico (Feb. 14).
They Live!, due Jan. 9, is the follow up to Evil Nine’s critically acclaimed 2005 debut, You Can Be Special Too.
The album features guest appearances by underground hip-hop mastermind El-P (on the droning rock-stomper “All The Cash”), Anti-Pop Consortium’s Beans (on the Goth-meets-hip-house burner “Set It Off”), David from Autokratz (on the melancholy “The Wait”), No Surrender’s Seraphim (on the epic, guitar-driven “Icicles”) and Emily Breeze (on the relentless industrial punk-screamer “Twist the Knife”).
Oh, by the way, did we mention the title track (and first single) is an homage to John Carpenter’s 1988 sci-fi classic of the same name?
So just what does all of this sound like? Ready? Try Justice meets Sonic Youth meets The Cure meets Danzig meets Goblin meets John Carpenter in a Jamaican dancehall. Really.
But don’t take our word for it. Download “All The Cash” or “They Live!” from the new album and listen for yourself.
