Kayo Dot news

Lots of great things happening with our friends in Kayo Dot. Here is some news from their newsletter, issue #4

I. Kayo Dot's EP of this past winter, Stained Glass, has just, a few days ago, experienced its vinyl phonograph record release via Antithetic Records! The record's B-Side features a very special remix of the piece, and a poster is included in the package. It's on sale NOW at Antithetic's webstore and SOON at Hydra Head's webstore.

II. NEW Kayo Dot material!!! We have a very special concert lined up on October 5, 2011 at Littlefield in Brooklyn, NY. At this concert, we're going to play a full set of all-new material and record the whole thing. Afterward, we're going to take these recordings home and do a million overdubs. This will be our next album. We hope that as many of you as possible can come to this show, especially because there will be some audience participation, which will be crucial to the sound of the record! That's at Littlefield, Brooklyn NY, October 5, 2011, 7PM, openers TBA.

III. Kayo Dot touring! Yes, we do have more tour plans, and yes, the United States is included this time! Firstly, we're planning a short Western European thing in early December. Secondly, we're planning a U.S. thing (Southeast to West coast!) for May 2012.

IV. We also have a couple other shows coming up soon besides the very special October 5th show.

Sept 8 - Boston, MA at Brighton Music Hall - opening for Secret Chiefs 3!!!

Sept 13 - New York, NY at Le Poisson Rouge - opening for Secret Chiefs 3!!!

V. Speaking of Antithetic Records, they are doing a box set of vinyl phonograph record reissues of the classic MAUDLIN OF THE WELL albums, Bath and Leaving Your Body Map! The box set will also feature a 7" of "The Secret Song" as well as some other goodies, and is slated for a winter release this year. Antithetic Records needs only a little over 100 preorders in order to go into production, so please check out some more information about this at their blog.

VI. Speaking of Bath and Leaving Your Body Map, I am finally able to put these albums up on iTunes, eMusic, Spotify, etc. I'm doing it today, and the official digital release date will be Monday, August 8, 2011!

VII. The Tartar Lamb II kickstarter-funded album, Polyimage of Known Exits, is finally here. We're sorry that it took sooo long to produce these vinyl phonograph records. Seriously, an almost five-month turnaround time. Anyway, they have arrived, and we'll be packing and shipping them in the next couple weeks! Check out this purty photo!

VII. Myspace - it sucks! Please DON'T use our myspace page as the definitive source for info about us. Instead, please use our official site, http://www.kayodot.net
