John Vanderslice: New Recording + Tour Dates

JOHN VANDERSLICE 'SUDDENLY IT ALL WENT DARK': PIXEL REVOLT LIVE TO 2-TRACKJohn Vanderslice will once again take his latest acclaimed album, Pixel Revolt, to the road. After a highly successful tour of Europe with Death Cab For Cutie, JV is back home and ready to share his music with North America. Kicking it off in Vancouver BC on April 6th and winding it up May 12th in San Francisco, this tour will offer fans the intricate, intelligent, and melodic music Vanderslice has a knack for, as well as brand spankin' new t-shirts and a new tour recording, Suddenly it All Went Dark, a live to 2-track record of the Pixel Revolt beauties which you all know and love (and if not, you should know). Recorded by JV's long time collaborator, Scott Solter, the recording bears the ghostly fingerprints of the famed room it was recorded in at Northern California's Prairie Sun recording studio, that room being nicknamed 'the chicken coop'. This special space has witnessed the birthing of, most notably, some of Tom Waits most spectacular music, along with many other artists, including JV's good friends, The Mountain Goats (who were, incidentally, recorded by JV at Prairie Sun).

You can order Suddenly it All Went Dark starting tomorrow, April 4th, from Barsuk.

Here are the JV tour dates with an intro in JV's own words. The tour's title, btw, comes from the song, "European Oils", from Destroyer's latest album, Destroyer's Rubies. At the bottom of the tour dates I've added several mp3s of JV's opening acts for this tour... plus this mp3 from JV.

JV + Cool Purple Mist
