MODESELEKTOR AND APPARAT JOIN FORCES AS MODERAT AND TOUR NORTH AMERICA
Modeselektor (aka Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary) and Apparat (aka Sascha Ring), two of Germany's most acclaimed electronic acts, have joined up to release their upcoming collaborative record, Moderat (out May 12 on Bpitch Control), and in support of this, are embarking on a rare North American tour. Their live show will be an audio-visual spectacle, as the three members of Moderat will be joined on stage by two members of the video/visual art group Pfadfinderei. Three screens of video, perfectly synchronized to the audio, will be a part of what the band describes as their most improvised and concert-like performance ever.
Additionally, the single for "Rusty Nails" (check it below) will be released on May 25, complete with remixes by Booka Shade and TRG, and, as previously noted, those who purchase the deluxe version of the full-length album will also receive a DVD produced by Pfadfinderei, including bonus tracks, behind the scenes footage, and a myriad of audio/visual acrobatics.
