SeepeopleS have announced their last full tour of 2008. The band will be playing a few select shows upon concluding their current schedule, and will be spending the majority of their time off the road finishing their highly anticipated forthcoming, and fourth full-length album, Apocalypse Cow Vol. 2, the sequel to the critically acclaimed Vol. 1.
The band is also happy to welcome special guest, Matt McDonald, formerly of Perpetual Groove, to the stage for an interesting live collaboration. McDonald, who recently left Perpetual Groove to spend time with his family and pursue new interests, will be joining SeepeopleS for at least four shows:
June 20th at Sassy Anne’s in Knoxville,
June 21st at the Lincoln Theatre in Raleigh,
June 26th at the Georgia Theatre in Athens opening for Toubab Krewe,
and August 8th at the Trinumeral Festival in Deerfields, NC with Galactic, Lotus, MIdnite and more.
McDonald, who became friends with SeepeopleS while the bands toured together over the years, will help to complete a veritable keyboard and synthesizer assault (w/ SeepeopleS keyboardist Peter Keys) for the upcoming shows, and fans of either or both bands can expect to hear an arsenal of sounds and some interesting song selections and arrangements. McDonald also has plans to join SeepeopleS front-man Will Bradford in the studio to work on an upcoming unnamed project and release.
SeepeopleS, who were recently nominated for a Jammy Award (Best New Groove 07), will be on the road until mid-September, and are scheduled to appear at the Vortex Music Festival (myspace.com/vortexmusicfestival) June 27, Trinumeral Festival (trinumeral.com) August 8, Musefest Aug. 22,23 (musefest.org) as well as Hookahville on Aug. 29.
