YACHT to release ‘Shangri-La’, playing Metro, & other 2011 tour dates
DOWNLOAD: YACHT – Dystopia (MP3)
YACHT tore it up at Coachella‘s Mojave Tent this past Friday, and now the dance band has embarked on what they’re calling the ROAD TO UTOPIA tour. This tour will feature (as YACHT puts it) “spiritual warmup” from Light Asylum, “shakra alignment sessions” by band member and collaborator Bobby Birdman, and finally “Kabbalistic innuendo” by Jeffery Jerusalem.
YACHT has a new perspective, friends. YACHT has become physical. For years, we’ve adhered to a strict message of self-empowerment, yet only now do we see just how far this philosophy can take us. The mind, we’ve discovered, is a place. And in creating our own reality within that place, we make Utopia.
YACHT’s new LP Shangri-La will be released on June 21st via DFA Records.
Above, you can download the album track “Dystopia”.
YACHT, Light Asylum, and Bobby Birdman will play Metro on May 5th.
Tickets are still available.
