Secret Chiefs 3
Secret Chiefs 3 have switched in to high gear. Having just completed a national tour in October with legendary Italian Giallo Horror soundtrack masters, Goblin, they released their long-awaited "Book of Souls: Folio A" album in late November. Next they are touring the west coast in February in support of that new album, and, surprise of surprises, are doing so armed with TWO new 7" records in hand. These will be available in stores stocking through Revolver USA, but those attending shows on the band's February tour can get them right away.
In truth, Secret Chiefs 3 is always in high gear. Most people don't realize they have played well over 300 shows in 34 countries in the last seven years.
But with a long-labored-over album in the can (you can read about it in the expanded bio), and fresh supplies of oxygen in the lungs, fresh new surprise releases are bubbling up through the Winter pseudo-frost as if it were Spring!
This tour will feature the A-team line-up of SC3 familiars: Drums / Ches Smith (Ceramic Dog), Keyboards / Matt Lebofsky (miRthkon, Moe Tar), Bass / Toby Driver (Kayo Dot), Violin, Guitar and Trumpet / Timba Harris (Estradasphere) and Saz, Guitar and Keyboards / Trey Spruance (The Three Doctors, Mr. Bungle). The band is extra excited to be re-united in this configuration!
You Bred Raptors?
You Bred Raptors? is a three piece busking band with the Music Under New York program that has legal permits to perform in the NYC subway system. They are an instrumental, experimental post rock ensemble made up of 8 string bass, cello, drums and two glockenspiels. Recently, the band has performed with Yoko Ono at her One Woman Show at the Museum of Modern Art, played close to 30 cities in 2015, opened to a sold-out show at the Gramercy Theatre, provided soundtrack work for TROMA Pictures, and were featured on Good Day New York, WNYC Radio, in The Economist, The Atlantic Magazine, Strings Magazine and Bass Guitar Magazine. The band has residencies across the boroughs including being a house band at the off-Broadway show "Sleep No More". That's a really long run-on sentence. Our apologies.
