FIRST SINGLE “THIS HEAD I HOLD” TO BE RELEASED JANUARY 24
SINGLE ART ATTACHED
“AMERICAN DAYDREAM” MTV PREMIERE JANUARY 23
Asa Taccone and Matthew Compton–collectively known as Electric Guest–have confirmed an April 24 release date for their Danger Mouse-produced Downtown Records debut album, Mondo.
The record’s release is preceded by utterly infectious first single “This Head I Hold,” available now as a free stream http://soundcloud.com/electricguest/this-head-i-hold and released digitally on January 24. Single art is included above.
Meanwhile the thoroughly unsettling video for album cut “American Daydream,” directed by Jorma Taccone (The Lonely Island, Saturday Night Live), will premiere across MTV’s various platforms beginning January 23 on MTV, mtvU, MTV Hits and MTV.com.
Electric Guest will also be bringing its live experience, hailed by NYLON as “pretty much irresistible,” to Los Angeles’ Echo club for a free residency beginning Monday February 6 and continuing every Monday through the end of February. The free weekly 11 p.m. live sets represent the band giving something back to the Los Angeles homebase that has embraced it since KCRW named album track “Troubleman” a “Today’s Top Tune” (http://www.kcrw.com/music/programs/tu/tu111101electric_guest_troub).
Following the completion of the Echo residency, Electric Guest will head out on a series of dates in the southwestern U.S., including their first visit to South By Southwest in Austin (Deatils TBD). See itinerary below and check back at ElectricGuest.com for updates.
