SXSW plus a UK
tour.

Dirty Projectors
are set to release ‘Bitte Orca’,
their 5th full-length album and first for Domino Records on June 9.  It’s
their followup to 2007’s Rise Above,
a healthily-hyped but ultimately insubstantial “reimagining” of the Black Flag
album of the same name. This new platter was recorded in Portland, OR and on their
home turn in Brooklyn, NY in 2008 and will be available on CD, LP
& digital. David Longstreth formed Dirty
Projectors in 2002 and the group now consists of Angel Deradoorian, Amber Coffman, Brian
Mcomber and David as principal members. 
Lead single ‘Stillness Is The
Move’
will precede the album on April 21st in North
America and will be available on 12″ and digital, with
b-sides and a remix by Lucky Dragons.

 

 

Dirty
Projectors will also be introducing an
expanded 6 member live lineup with the addition of bassist Nat Baldwin and vocalist
Haley Dekle for a number of dates this winter and spring. The dates include a
very special show at the Walker Arts Center
in Minneapolis
on March 6th, a number of SXSW performances, a UK Arts Council headline tour
and more.
