Honour Is A Battle With Many Beats

A band who have been quietly satisfying my slight fetish for the avant-garde in recent times will be hitting these shores (UK) in May, as well as releasing the fantastic 'Chrome's On It' on a split 7' with Sunni-Geini through No Pain In Pop in June.

Telepathe are a (yet another) Brooklyn based foursome who have been around for quite a while now, all be it with various line-up changes, but are steadily building up some momentum after settling on their current setup.

Busy Gangnes, Melissa Livaudais, Ryan Lucero, and Jessie Gold will be supporting The Kills on their short tour of the US in April after receiving quite the mixed bag of reviews from SXSW this spring.

Their forthcoming album, Dance Mother will be following standard procedure in recruiting the 'in demand' Dave Sitek of TV On The Radio to produce.

Specialising in swirling dreamlike synths, short hits of tribal drumming and almost howling poetic chants, Telepathe can be seen at the Great Escape Festival in Brighton as well as several London dates and one in Liverpool.
