DeVotchKa: New Song, New Album w/Colorado Symphony

November 13, 2012 sees the release of DeVotchKa‘s new album, DeVotchKa Live with the Colorado Symphony. “We have been working towards this moment ever since the band began,” remembers Nick Urata, lead singer and frontman for DeVotchKa. “We’ve always had orchestral leanings, we wrote for more and more players with every album, when the chance to perform with an entire symphony came, we jumped at it. We thought it would be the perfect night for a live recording and hope the listener feels like they are in the room with us.”

A once in a lifetime oppurtunity for a band, some of DeVotchKa’s most iconic songs were revisited, restructured, and performed with a full 60-piece orchestra. Rather than hire a composer to create the charts for each instrument, the band took it upon themselves, with Tom Hagerman spending months locked away in his garage fleshing out each note that the orchestra performed.

The CD is available for pre-order from DeVotchKa’s webstore now. The band will sign and personalize all pre-orders from their webstore, so grab one here, and listen to “Along The Way” from the new album below.

DeVotchKa is Nick Urata (Vocals, guitars, Theremin, trumpet, piano), Jeanie Schroder (acoustic bass, sousaphone), Shawn King (drums, percussion, trumpet) and Tom Hagerman (violin, viola, accordion, piano).
