So, the big news around the Glass Apple Bonzai camp is that we are confirmed to play a show in Reykjavik, Iceland on Saturday, November 8th at the Dillon.
Krummi (of Icelandic synthpop act Legend) does the booking for the Dillon and he has set the whole thing up. So a big thanks to him.
This is will mark Bonzai’s first out-of-country performance EVER, and what a way to start.
Iceland has been on my list of places to visit since I was a kid, so this is a big deal.
We’ll be performing off-venue during the Iceland Airwaves Festival, so it’s going to be a pretty amazing experience and we’re planning something special for that performance.
In other music related news the “Night Maze” EP is nearing completion and I’m planning a digital release of it at first, then cassette (with download included), and eventually a 10″ vinyl release.
Speaking of vinyl, I’m also putting together the details for a special edition re-release of “Glass Apple Bonzai” on vinyl with a special 7″ 45-rpm of an exclusive “single mix” of Too Late to Let Go.
Also in December (no exact date just yet) I will be doing a live scoring of the Fritz Lang’s 1927 cinematic masterpiece Metropolis.
Join me on stage for that night will be Ethan Moseley of Promonium Jesters, Mutant Women, and Defence Mechanism.
Ethan is a master of weird disjointed noises and electronic wizardry, which are both necessary components to scoring this film.
So far nothing is set in stone, but the details will be finalised soon.
