The TomorrowMen - Futourism released 8/2/15

Submitted by DannySnyder on July 31, 2015.
Bands

­­New TomorrowMen CD: Futourism

LIMITED EDITION BOX OUT NOW ON DOUBLE CROWN RECORDS FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE   August 2, 2015 

Surf/Instro Rockateers The TomorrowMen return from an eon-spanning vacation with FUTOURISM, the much-anticipated follow-up to their acclaimed 2011 debut It’s About Time!

MYCROFT ELOI (guitar), LAZARUS LONGFELLOW (guitar), SKYLES ANGSTROM (bass) and GROMMET X (drums) have concocted, crafted and cut thirteen new tracks of ultra-melodic, hyper-effervescent, non-stop Surf/Instro Rock which capture the exhilarating, cosmos-trotting experience of barnstorming at breakneck speed throughout time, from 1963 to 3063 and back again without a breath between.


From the baroque Venusian cloudburst of PARSEC’S PARADOX to the contemplative sturm-und-twang of MERCURY IN RETROGRADE, the Saturnalian secret agent trill-and-chill of THE MAN WHO COULDN’T TELL TIME and the bittersweet Neptunian summer’s-end melancholia of CIRCADIA , The TomorrowMen bring it kicking, spinning and reverbing on home to the adventurous 21st Century time traveller. So pack a bag, slip into your all-weather see-thru chromium and vinyl spacesuit and hop onto the big, big Stereo Spaceship for a timeless, time-wide trip into the ear-splendiferous sound of The TomorrowMen’s FUTOURISM.


In the primitive era that is the 21st Century, when hot, sweet, foot-stompin’ music is reduced to little more than a streaming bit of flotsam, The TomorrowMen are here to bring you hope from the year 3000 in the shape of a special, hand-made, limited edition box version of FUTOURISM, complete with a genuine Compact Disc and an extra-genuine selection of Postcard Art from the future, along with a download code so you can put FUTOURISM right onto your phone or similar digital turntable, allowing you to share the CD with a Luddite friend, or vice-versa. Hand-made box edition limited to 500 copies.


Tracks:  PARSEC’S PARADOX ― BACK TO REALITY ― NEW DEMOCRACY ― TUNAK TUNAK
ADRIENNE’S SONG ― ALL SUMMER IN A DAY ― MERCURY IN RETROGRADE
 RACK ‘EM UP ―TEMPUS FUGITIVE ― THE MAN WHO COULDN’T TELL TIME
HEMISPHERICAL SYNCHRONIZATION ― LOST ― CIRCADIA

We are pleased to announce that the 8th Annual SurfGuitar101 Convention will be taking place on Saturday, August 8th, 9am to 8pm, at the Garden Grove Elks Lodge in Garden Grove, California! Please note the venue change this year!

Hailing from Atlanta, Georgia we have the progressive instrumental band Moonbase. From a time and place unknown we have the sci-fi stylings of The TomorrowMen. And it wouldn’t be a true surf guitar convention without the legendary Paul “Mr. Moto” Johnson of the groundbreaking 60’s band The Belairs. Finally we have an all-star tribute to Jim Messina and The Jesters featuring John Blair (Jon & The Nightriders) and Ivan Pongracic (The Space Cossacks, The Madeira).
