The Secret Machines Announce Fall Tour
New Album Secret Machines out October 14
After a run of select dates this summer, including a stop at this year's All Points West Festival (read the review here), New York City's The Secret Machines will be hitting the road in the fall in support of their new album, entitled Secret Machines. The album will be released on October 14 on their own label, TSM Recordings, through World's Fair Label Group. The Dears will be joining the tour in the Midwest through the West Coast and Small Sins will provide support on the Canadian dates.
|The Secret Machines|
Secret Machines, recorded in the band's adopted home of New York City and produced by the band and Brandon Mason, is a sonic tour de force, full of expansive instrumental swells and psychedelic sounds. From the driving beat of opener and first single "Atomic Heels" to the steady drone of "The Fire Is Waiting," Secret Machines sees the band mapping out new musical terrain while retaining the elements that have made them favorites amongst music fans since the release of their first album, Now Here Is Nowhere, in 2004.
The Secret Machine's live show - whether with an extensive stage production or just the three core members of Brandon Curtis, Josh Garza, and Phil Karnats with a sparse stage set up - is always an impressive sonic experience taking the listener on one hell of an aural journey.
"...in a live setting the sound is hypnotic with metallic intensity, the chilling splendor rendered heavier and dirtier. The tightly coiled tension will suddenly drop the floor out from under you, revealing crash sites on psychedelic vistas, and it's these stomach plunging moments that draw you away from the crowd and into your head." -From JamBase's review of Secret Machines in Austin.
