Thievery Corporation to Release Sixth Studio Album, Culture of Fear on June 28th.
Date: May 04, 2011 (Wednesday)
Renowned DJ duo Thievery Corporation have announced details of their sixth studio album, Culture of Fear, set for release on June 28th on their own label ESL Music. The release will kick-off with a live show at the Williamsburg Waterfront in Brooklyn on June 24th and the full live band will be doing a run of shows throughout the summer, including trips to Portugal, Hungary, Greece, Turkey, Australia and a headline show at Red Rocks on August 14th.
With over 1.2 million albums sold in the U.S. across 15 years of making music, Thievery Corporation serves up their sixth studio album titled Culture of Fear. They continue to blend musical styles in their trademark fashion; space-rock jams lead to hip-hop inspired grooves, airy down-temp trances and dub-reggae infused vibes throughout the journey.
Tracks include “Web of Deception,” a 70’s space-rock-funk homage to bands like Mystic Moods Orchestra, “Take My Soul,” a rock/soul/electronic jam featuring longtime Thievery Corporation Persian singer LouLou, an epic instrumental titled “Fragments,” as well as collaborations with Bitter Sweet vocalist Shana Halligan on “Is It Over?” and Boston hip-hop artist Mr. Lif on the title track, “Culture of Fear.”
Look for them all over the country this summer, from Lighting in a Bottle to Wakarusa to Red Rocks and finally the North Coast Music Festival in Chicago where they will wrap up their tour.
Check out the Culture of Fear teaser track they put together; a mashup of tracks off the new album. A little something to hold you over until the release.
