ANTI Europe releases DeVotchKa album
How It Ends on August 6 2007
European Tour and U.S. Festival Dates ahead
DeVotchKa has signed an exclusive deal with ANTI RECORDS for the European release of their much-praised album How It Ends.
DeVotchKa are four musicians who have quietly become one of the most celebrated bands making music today. They make a disparate, yet articulate union of Eastern European, Southwestern, South American, and American roots music, both punk and folk.
LA Weekly described their music as "the unexplored sweet spot between The Arcade Fire's bleary string-streaked indie-folk and Gogol Bordello's Eastern European Gypsy-punk." New York Times called them "the most musically versatile band of the Gypsy-punk trendlet of the last few years." NPR's All Things Considered has said DeVotchKa "is everything music should be..."
Already riding high on word of mouth and constant touring, DeVotchKa's breakout came with the movie Little Miss Sunshine (2006 multiple Academy Award winner). The band composed and performed the majority of the score and songs on the movies' soundtrack which was also nominated for a 2006 Grammy Award for Best Compilation Soundtrack. Two of the songs featured on this soundtrack, "You Love Me" and "How It Ends," are on the How It Ends album.
European enhanced version of How It Ends will include an animated video for the "Vengo! Vengo!" (a song from DeVotchKa's previous album Una Volta) and will be available throughout Europe on August 6.
