2012 ANIMALE MECHANIQUE FALL TOUR
Growing like wildfire under the canopy of live electronica and experimental world fusion music, the acclaimed musical trio Beats Antique launch their fall tour to finish out 2012 in support of their upcoming release,Contraption Vol. 2, a new cinematic, orchestral, and seductively bass heavy EP.
As the trio masterfully merges modern technology, live instrumentation, brass bands, string quartets, glitch, and dubstep, Beats Antique’s highly anticipated new album explores another octave of musings first begun in 2007 with Tribal Derivations. Five years, four albums and two EPs later, Contraption Vol. 2 – will arrive on Tue 9.18.12 – to round out the collection of over 80 songs released.
Beats Antique will inspire their fans with a raw, animalistic musical event that blurs the lines between the provocative, the spiritual, and the artistic while still maintaining allegiance to the muses of class, beauty. The tour, “Animale Mechanique”, will cover 35 locations in North America and end with a once-in-a lifetime show in front of The Pyramids in Egypt on the Winter Solstice.
Having already enchanted audiences at Coachella, Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Red Rocks and beyond, Beats Antique’s performances blend electro-acoustic breakbeats set to a Bollywood bass-circus stage show, with the sophistication of top hats receding to a sea of animal masks and wild feather headdresses. Their ability to create a balance between artist and audience even before the curtain rises creates a total escape both through live performance and the album experience that leaves critics and fans reeling alike
