Perpetual Groove's Matt McDonald Joins SeepeopleS for Select Dates
SeepeopleS have announced their last full tour of 2008. The band will be playing a few select shows upon concluding their current schedule, and will be spending the majority of their time off the road finishing their highly anticipated forthcoming, and fourth full-length album, Apocalypse Cow Vol. 2, the sequel to the critically acclaimed Vol. 1. The band is also happy to welcome special guest, Matt McDonald, formerly of Perpetual Groove, to the stage for an interesting live collaboration. McDonald, who recently left Perpetual Groove to spend time with his family and pursue new interests, will be joining SeepeopleS for four shows:
06.20 | Sassy Anne's in Knoxville, TN
06.21 | Lincoln Theatre in Raleigh, NC
06.26 | Georgia Theatre in Athens, GA (opening for Toubab Krewe)
08.08 | Trinumeral Festival in Deerfields, NC (w/ Galactic, Lotus and more)
McDonald, who became friends with SeepeopleS while the bands toured together over the years, will help to complete a veritable keyboard and synthesizer
assault (with SeepeopleS keyboardist Peter Keys) for the upcoming shows, and fans of either or both bands can expect to hear an arsenal of sounds and some interesting song selections and arrangements. McDonald also has plans to join SeepeopleS frontman Will Bradford in the studio to work on an upcoming unnamed project and release.
SeepeopleS, who were recently nominated for a Jammy Award (Best New Groove 2007), will be on the road until mid-September, and are scheduled to appear at the Vortex Music Festival June 27, Trinumeral Festival August 8, Musefest August 22 & 23, as well as Hookahville on August 29.
