Tour

Bon Iver have canceled their upcoming European tour behind 22, A Million. In a note on the band’s website, it is pointed out that the tour has been scrapped for “personal reasons.” Bon Iver will refund all tickets and, as of now, have no plans to reschedule the canceled tour dates. Their festival appearances at this year’s Coachella, and at Primavera in Spain are still set to happen. Check out the note below.

ASTR

My first introduction to NYC electronic-duo ASTR came in 2014 when I heard their Varsity EP, and became obsessed with their song “Blue Hawaii.” It was part electronica, part pop, and a chorus nod to Blackbox’s “Everybody Everybody.” A year after the fact, the duo released, “Activate Me,” another ASTR song that I’ve played the crap out of. And now, the’ve added another into the mix. The song is called “Invincible” and its languid, 80’s synth vibe is another showcase into the talent that these two possess.

 

Their Homecoming EP (which more than likely will feature “Activate Me” and “Invincible”) is set for release sometime this year. The duo is also hitting the road as support for Ryn Weaver, and Holychild. Check out the dates below.

Depression Cherry, the follow-up to 2012’s Bloom, marks the duo’s 5th full-length record and it was recorded at Studio in the Country in Bogalusa, Louisiana from November ’14 through January ’15. The record, according to the duo, marks “a return to simplicity, with songs structured around a melody and a few instruments, with live drums playing a far lesser role.”

That’s the cover art below. Both the sleeve for the LP and the CD will be made of actual red velvet. With a limited, “Loser Edition,” on clear vinyl available for pre-order on Sub Pop’s website while supplies last. As for its name, “Depression Cherry is a color, a place, a feeling, an energy… that describes the place you arrive as you move through the endlessly varied trips of existence…”

Legrand, and Scally will embark on a world tour starting in mid August with a two night stop at the Fonda Theatre on 12/8 and 12/9. Tickets for these two shows go on sale this Friday, May 29, at 10:00 a.m. via AXS for $30.00 each plus service fees.

This is pure speculation on my part, but I think they’re, come January 2o16, going to be on the line-up poster of that festival that takes place in the So Cal desert. What’s it called it again?
