SeepeopleS side project: Freepeoples Frequency Tour
SeepeopleS frontman Will Bradford and SeepeopleS front of house engineer Brooke Binion are unveiling their new project: Freepeoples Frequency. In the coming months they will release their debut album, Small Pills to Swallow, which is tentatively scheduled for release in the Spring of 2009 on Bradford's own imprint label, Rascalz Recordz.
The project, a true live PA in the spirit of early 90s big beat electro akin to Crystal Method, the Chemical Brothers and the Orb, made their live debut at the Root Down Family Festival in North Carolina this summer and have just opened two shows for Lotus on their Hammerstrike Tour, November 2 in Richmond, VA at the National and November 3 at the Shaftman Performing Arts Center in Roanoke. Now Bradford's band SeepeopleS joins the tour from November 5 through November 15. FFQ is also headlining the official after-party for the Lotus and SeepeopleS show at the Orange Peel in Asheville, NC on November 7. The after-party starts at 1:00 a.m. and is being held at The Garage at Biltmore. Other acts include the Agobe Project.
Freepeoples Frequency will also team up with Matt McDonald's new electronica project, My Subversive Media for two shows, December 5 at the Emerald Lounge in Asheville, NC and January 31 at the Blind Tiger in Greensboro, NC. McDonald, the former keyboardist for Perpetual Groove will also be joining SeepeopleS when they open for Lotus at the Orange Peel in Asheville, NC on November 7.
Bradford and Binion have also enlisted the help of long time SeepeopleS' producer, Will Holland (Pixies, Fall Out Boy, Dead Can Dance), and are recording Small Pills to Swallow at Chillhouse Studios in Boston, where the last two SeepeopleS albums were recorded. Aside from working on their own debut, the three of them have been co-producing a new project by ex-Green Lemon frontman, Wayne Allen entitled the Skyes and they will also be producing a track for Laura Reed due for release next year.
