Les Savy Fav‘s Tim Harrington is set to release his own children’s book.
The New York Observer reports that the frontman has written his own as-yet-untitled child’s picture book. Although it is not currently known when the tome will be released, it will be published by Balzer & Bray, a children’s imprint of HarperCollins, and will be a “humorous, fresh take on the nursery rhyme ‘This Little Piggy’, featuring drumming, dancing, and superhero toes.”
The New York band were forced to rush-release their last studio album, ‘Root To Ruin’, in August last year over a month ahead of schedule after it leaked online, leading the band’s Syd Butler to compare the situation to sex without foreplay. He told NME: “It’s like foreplay. You want to have foreplay, or you just want to bang? This is like somebody said, ‘Hey, you want to have sex tonight?’ And you can’t do anything about it.”
Les Savy Fav will curate the opening day (December 9), with Battles picking the line-up the following day (10). Caribou will be responsible for the bill on the closing day (11). The event, which takes place from December 9-11, has been curated in previous years by My Bloody Valentine, Portishead and The Mars Volta.
