TAUK will be celebrating the release of Homunculus on April 24th at Sullivan Hall in NYC, presented by Live for Live Music. Tickets on sale, here.
TAUK is Matt Jalbert (Guitar), Charlie Dolan (Bass), Alric “A.C.” Carter (Keyboard-Organ), and Isaac Teel (Drums). Forming in middle school, a majority of TAUK’s members have been playing together for over a decade. The group experimented with their sound throughout the years both individually while studying at top music universities and conservatories, and together as a band – always working to find their ideal sound. It wasn’t until 2012 with the addition of drummer,Isaac Teel, and the realization the band could build a fan base around a completely instrumental act, that the pieces fell into place for Homunculus. Jalbertexplains, “This band has been through a lot, but we hit a point last year where it just felt like things were coming together the way they were supposed to. We really wanted this new album to be a statement as to what TAUK is all about.”
With the new album’s psychedelic title, Homunculus, TAUK aims to leave the interpretation of both the title and the music up to the listener. “Being an instrumental band leaves a lot of our music up to being interpreted in different ways,” explains Jalbert.
TAUK will release Homunculus on April 30th. Pre- Order it on iTunes now!
