The Antlers (from L-R) are Michael, Darby and Peter.
A couple of Brooklyn’s most promising young artists are set to have very busy years. Tomorrow The Antlers will release a new record and prepare to tour while Alan Palomo’s outfit, Neon Indian, puts the finishing touches on their sophomore record while readying their road show.
Before both bands get set to tour the world, The Antlers’ invited some friends into their Brooklyn studio for a jam session that included Palomo adding some synthesized bells and whistles to The Antlers’ track “Rolled Apart” from their forthcoming album titled Burst Apart. The resulting video is an extended version of the track that shows the range of singer Peter Silberman and the bands’ overall willingness to experiment in the name good music.
Check out the session with Palomo and The Antlers below:
Pitchfork goes on to report that The Antlers also invited friends Nicole Atkins and Bear in Heaven to the studio to record more cuts from their new album. The Antlers will release video from those sessions in the near future.
Tomorrow The Antlers will unleash Burst Apart for the masses. Their second album will be released by Frenchkiss Records who is also responsible for their stunning debut Hospice. The band stopped by Knitting Factory last Friday to perform the new album in its entirety to a packed room of curious and enthusiastic onlookers.
The Antlers will do a few northeast dates in support of the new album before heading out on a larger tour that begins at the Sasquatch Festival on May 28. The northeast dates include a date at the Music Hall of Williamsburg on May 19 and a sold out Bowery Ballroom show on May 20.
A source at the venue tells me the Brooklyn show is nearly sold out so pick up your tickets now if you want to see The Antlers and join in the celebration of the release of Burst Apart.
