Growing like wildfire under the canopy of live electronica and experimental world fusion music, musical trio Beats Antique just launched an extensive fall tour to finish out 2012 in support of their upcoming release, Contraption Vol. 2, a new cinematic, orchestral, and seductively bass heavy EP.
As the trio masterfully merges modern technology, live instrumentation, brass bands, string quartets, glitch, and dubstep, Beats Antique’s highly anticipated new album explores another octave of musings first begun in 2007 with Tribal Derivations. Five years, four albums and two EPs later, Contraption Vol. 2 will arrive on Tues., Sept. 18 to round out the collection of over 80 songs released.
Beats Antique will inspire their fans with a raw, animalistic musical event that blurs the lines between the provocative, the spiritual, and the artistic while still maintaining allegiance to the muses of class and beauty. The tour, “Animale Mechanique”, will cover 35 locations in North America and end with a once-in-a lifetime show in front of The Pyramids in Egypt on the Winter Solstice.
