Chad VanGaalen shares “Mind Hijacker’s Curse”

Chad VanGaalen shares new single “Mind Hijacker’s Curse”.

Chad VanGaalen will release his new album Light Information on September 8th in Canada via Flemish Eye and the rest of the world through Sub Pop. Today he is sharing the album track “Mind Hijacker’s Curse”.

VanGaalen says of the song, “Mind Hijacker’s Curse is the outcome and side effects of vacationing inside of another organism’s consciousness. Once we can do this, I see the potential to forget your physical self and just live inside of some other beings mind. Hook me up to the fungal web that allows entire forests to communicate. I imagine the dolphin package would be very popular…”

Additionally on September 8th, Sub Pop will repress VanGaalen’s Infiniheart, his beloved and long out of print (on vinyl) 2005 debut on 2xLP and Turquoise vinyl. And, now at long last, Chad VanGaalen’s discography (Shrink Dust, Infiniheart, Skelliconnection, Soft Airplane, and Diaper Island) is available for the first time time on Bandcamp.

Chad VanGaalen’s previously announced fall 2017 international tour dates in support of Light Information span October 15th in Utrecht, Netherlands at EKKO through December 8th in Montreal, Quebec at The Fairmount.
