LEGENDARY STICKMAN ANNOUNCES
A NEW RECORD AND SPRING TOUR
Three time Grammy winner Mickey Hart announces his new studio album and tour. Hart's new album entitled Mysterium Tremendum, his first in five years, follows the 2007 Grammy award winning Global Drum Project.
With Mysterium Tremendum, Hart is pushing the boundaries of what we know as music, creating a genre of his own. "I have always thought of life, the world at large, as music," says Hart. "This work is a physical representation of that notion. I have combined sonic images of the formation of our universe with sounds drawn from musical instruments. It's all about the vibrations that make up the infinite universe. In this case, they began as light waves and these light waves are still washing over us."
For this new work Hart joined with long time Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter to pen the words for these songs. "Hunter is a bold visionary writer who knows where I am going with this music," says Hart. " He is indispensable to the weave of this story."
Fresh off the road from a sold out 19 date tour, The Mickey Hart Band will be back on the road, and "Above The Clouds", touring in March and April to support the new album, which will be released April 10, 2012.
The Mickey Hart Band lineup consists of Widespread Panic bassist Dave Schools, Grammy winning percussionist and longtime bandmate Sikiru Adepoju, Tony Award winning vocalist Crystal Monee Hall, singer Tim Hockenberry, drummer Ian "Inx" Herman, guitarist Gawain Matthews, and keyboardist Ben Yonas.
Mysterium Tremendum will be released on Mickey Hart's own 360° Records. The album is co-produced by Ben Yonas (Zion I, Spencer Day, Jazz Mafia).
