Nebraska based emo group Cursive may have just finished up touring in support of their 2012 album “I Am Gemini” but it’s just the beginning for frontman Tim Kasher.

Tim has announced his sophomore solo album “Adult Film” will be released October 8th.
A press release describes this album as “less ornate” than his previous work “Game of Monogamy”.
The 10 song album was mixed by John Congleton who has worked with artists such as St. Vincent and Explosions in the Sky.

Although it is a solo album of course Tim Kasher had some backup artists on there and those included:
Bassist Sara Bertuldo
Organ and Horn player Patrick Newbery
Drummer Dylan Ryan

As well there are some guest stars in the album including Nate Kinsella and Laura Stevenson

The best news is yet to come as Kasher and his band will be taking the show on the road this fall with a ton of Canadian dates including a stop off at The Electric Owl in Vancouver.

Neutral Milk Hotel Announces More Tour Dates

neutral milk hotel

Well I know you’ve all been waiting for this after our first post about Neutral Milk Hotel.
The group has announced further tour dates in what is shaping up to be a massive world tour!

Although last year the internet erupted as Jeff Mangum was performing solo shows things really went off when the group announced they would be playing as a full band for the first time in 14 years.

As someone who grew up listening to this band and never having hopes of seeing them I can only continue wishing they book something close to Vancouver.

I will certainly continue these updates are more dates are (hopefully) announced.
