Having recently announced his forthcoming album, America, out August 28th (North America) / August 27th (Rest of the world) on Domino, Dan Deacon is set to head out on a major headlining North American tour this autumn, performing with his streamlined ensemble of two drummers — Jeremy Hyman of Boredoms, Ponytail; Kevin O’Meara of Videohippos — with America producer Chester Endersby Gwazda joining Dan on electronics.

Dan Deacon shows are renowned for the spectacle of hundreds, even thousands, of jubilant people doing coordinated movement. It’s a sight to behold, but it’s even more amazing to participate. And for Deacon, what is ostensibly just “fun” started to take on a profound dimension since the release of 2009’s Bromst, of people uniting and claiming physical space in an ecstatic act of empowerment. He saw a metaphor in there, a connection with recent movements like the Arab Spring and Occupy Wall Street. America is the soundtrack of that realization – ecstatic, celebratory sounds in conjunction with thematically darker undercurrents.

The America Tour’s streamlined four-piece trimmed down from the 14-musician Bromst ensemble — retains the energy of a live band, while staying true to the music’s throbbing electronic pulse.

America will be available on CD, LP, cassette and digitally. A special pre-order is available right now through Domino: http://dominorecordco.com/america
