The Dandy Warhols are streaming their new album ‘This Machine’ exclusively on NME.COM – scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to listen to it in its entirety.
‘This Machine’, which is set for release on April 24, will be the Oregon alt-rock band’s ninth studio album. Recorded throughout 2011 at their studio The Odditorium, the band worked with longtime engineer and part-time producer Jeremy Sherrer and mixer Tchad Blake.
Speaking to NME about the album, frontman Courtney Taylor-Taylor said:
It seems to strike people as having a Nirvana ‘In Utero’-type sound, but I think that emotionally it feels a bit more gothic than that.
The album artwork features a painting by Hickory Mertsching, a painter from Portland, Oregon. You can also find four short stories accompanying the CD, written by sci-fi writer Richard Morgan. The author also wrote the official biographies for 2008 release ‘…Earth To The Dandy Warhols…’.
The Dandy Warhols are playing three UK gig dates this month, visiting the following:
Glasgow Garage (April 19)
Manchester Academy (20)
London HMV Forum (21)
