Trance-fusion pioneers The Disco Biscuits launch their new tour and live CD series called Trance Fusion Radio Broadcast this week.
The Disco Biscuits, described by The Village Voice as, “Arguably the best live rock band in the world,” kick off their Spring tour in Colorado; Fox Theater (1135 13th St.) on Thursday, April 3rd and Friday, April 4th, 8150 Club (143 E. Meadow Dr.) in Vail on Saturday, April 5th, Gothic Theatre (3263 S. Broadway) in Englewood on Sunday, April 6th, and Aggie Theater (2204 S. College Ave.) in Fort Collins on Monday, April 7th.
Known for their incomparable and ever-changing live shows, The Disco Biscuits will headline theatres from the Rockies to the Eastern Seaboard throughout April and May. This summer, stops are highlighted by major city festivals including Atlanta’s Music Midtown, Nashville’s River Stages and Charlotte’s CityFest. In addition to the tour, fans can look forward to the release of a trio of live discs under the header Trance Fusion Radio: Broadcast 1, Broadcast 2, and Broadcast 3. Each CD features 70 minutes of material recorded live during Bisco’s celebrated 2002 New Years Eve run. Although each title will be sold separately, all three will be available April 10th via www.discobiscuits.com and at shows.
No matter where in the U.S. the band plays, its fans follow. As bassist Marc Brownstein tells, “A lot of our diehards have regular jobs but they’ll negotiate with their bosses to get several days or weeks off just to follow us on tour and be at every show.” It is this profoundly loyal and mounting fan base which keeps the quartet on the road all year long playing to crowds of several thousand in most cities. In fact last year’s tour was highlighted by a slot on the inaugural Bonnaroo Festival, and capped off with two sold-out nights at Philadelphia’s Electric Factory that ranked amongst the top grossing New Year’s Eve concerts of the year.
Comprised of Jon Gutwillig (vocals/guitar), Marc Brownstein (vocals/bass), Aron Magner (keyboard/vocals), and Sam Altman (drums), the quartet continues to bridge the gap between the jamband and electronica/dance worlds by drawing on elements from seemingly disparate genres. Formed in 1995 at the University of Pennsylvania, the group has quickly emerged as one of the most successful independent bands in the country.
