Michael Gira / Swans To Curate Mouth To Mouth Fest.

 Swans have confirmed line-up details for next April’s independently curated festival: Mouth to Mouth Curator Event.

Says Gira, “This is the first installment in what we hope to be a yearly festival, focused on disparate music and genres. Artists are chosen based on their ability to resuscitate, set fire to the air, or to mesmerize. All of the performers chosen for this year’s festival I find personally to be compelling in this regard. The goal: joy!”

XiuXiu, Ben Frost, Mercury Rev's Cinematic Silent Sound Tettix Wave Experiment and Swans will all be performing on 4th April at London's Koko, with one act still to be confirmed.

Tickets for the event are priced at £30 and are available NOW via Ticketweb

Octopus Project "Whitby" Video.

The "Whitby" music video is a product of the The Octopus Project's collective consciousness. Created, shot and directed by the band, the stop-motion extravaganza was crafted entirely using die-cut colored card stock. Band members meticulously designed each shape in Photoshop then used a cutting machine generally reserved for scrapbooking to cut them out before photographing them in real world settings. The final video consists of over 4,000 separate images.

"Whitby" is the first single from a yet-untitled album of new material by The Octopus Project, planned for release in 2013. The "Whitby" digital single also features an additional, totally different remix of the song by the band.

A Decade Of Yacht.

Press Release:

YACHT is developing a comedy TV show for Amazon called SUPPORT, plus 10th anniversary show announced 
Two big announcements from Team YACHT today: First of all, YACHT is turning ten years old!  To celebrate, YACHT has announced a 10th Anniversary celebration on Dec. 8 in Los Angeles at the Echoplex.  The performance will feature material from all eras and line-ups of the band, with special guests, surprises and prizes and party favors for the audience! Secondly, the members of YACHT are pleased to announce they are currently developing a comedy show for Amazon Studios, called Support.  Expect to see the pilot online early next year.

Official press release from Amazon Studios announcing Support:

Sometimes, what happens behind the scenes can be even more entertaining than what happens in the spotlight. That's the idea behind a new series added to the Amazon Studios Development Slate: Support, about a band's life on the road.

The creators of Support are all members of a band called YACHT, who are signed to LCD Soundsystem's label, DFA. And yes, they drew from their own experiences - in dozens of different kinds of bands - to create their show:

"Viewing the awkward, banal (and sometimes even degrading) realities inherent to playing in a band through the lens of comedy has helped us cope with how weird our lives consistently are."

More about Support:
Writers: Jona Bechtolt, Jeffrey Brodsky, Claire Evans, Rob Kieswetter (they are the band YACHT)

Logline: An ensemble comedy about life on the rock 'n' roll road, as seen through the eyes of its least glamorous participants: the opening band.

Why Amazon optioned it: The script is funny, has heart, and is about as authentic of a perspective as you can get on the music industry. It's a fascinating look backstage and at the lives of the bands we look up to on stage. These are characters we care about and root for and want to see succeed.

>From the writers: "For the past three years, we've imagined our lives on the road as a TV show. In many ways, a tour is a perfect analogue to an episodic series: there's a central cast of characters, recurring locations, absurd scenarios, and new conflicts to resolve every day. There are just too many stranger-than-fiction moments that we've wanted to share, but haven't had the time or outlet to do so. We've been keeping notes of every ridiculous interaction and story in a shared document and we can't wait to unearth them all through the show."

YACHT 2012 Tour Dates:

10/19    New York, NY @ Terminal 5

Press Release For New Neurosis Album.

NEUROSIS: Title Of Tenth Full-Length Revealed

It is said that great art has the power to take us outside of ourselves and bring us closer to ourselves simultaneously. Few bands have accomplished this rare feat on a more profound and consistent basis than NEUROSIS. For nearly three decades, their music has touched the hearts and minds of young men and women seeking contact with something beyond the physical world, something intangible, something that expresses the inner tumult of the human condition in a way that transcends time and space. Something that not only provokes questions but maybe even hints at answers.

Since 1985 this matchless force has surpassed the boundaries of any genre, never ceasing to mutate and progress their songwriting and sonic delivery, and never failing to mesmerize audiences both in the studio and onstage. And as the anticipation from their diehard fanbase reaches a boiling point, this week NEUROSIS unveil the title of their tenth full-length studio creation, which will manifest itself as Honor Found In Decay.

The follow-up to their acclaimed 2007-released Given To The Rising album, the music on Honor Found In Decay is both torturous and transcendent. It is the ongoing exposition of a vast internal dialogue that seems to carry the weight of eons. With the right kind of ears and eyes, it can seem like the trials and tribulations of mankind are being channeled through five individuals: Steve Von Till, Scott Kelly, Noah Landis, Jason Roeder and Dave Edwardson. And yet? They will be the first ones to tell you that they are just regular people trying to make sense of the world around them. Aided by Josh Graham, their resident visual guru, they transmit their interpretations through multiple sensory planes. The degree to which Neurosis allows them to step out of their everyday lives is the distance between one and zero, the distance between thinking and doing, the distance between this minute and the one that may or may not follow. Which is to say: NEUROSIS takes them outside of themselves and brings them closer to themselves. Simultaneously.

This next chapter in the evolution of NEUROSIS will see worldwide release through the band’s own Neurot Recordings this Autumn, in Germany October 26th, in the UK October 29th, and in North America on October 30th.

Further details on Honor Found In Decay will be made available over the coming weeks.

NEUROSIS:Scott Kelly – vocals/guitars
Steve Von Till – vocals/guitars
Dave Edwardson – bass
Jason Roeder – drums
Noah Landis – keyboards
Josh Graham – visual effects, art
