These Are Powers are in the midst of a North American tour and their friend Karen Soskin is along for the ride to offer a helping hand, sell merch and join in the good times. Karen is keeping us apprised of all of the tour happenings via Other Music’s blog. It is a really fun read and hopefully we will leave them with some good Austin stories soon.

These Are Powers kick off tour, work on new LP

These Are Powers have spent the summer in Chicago, writing and recording a new LP. The band is currently putting the finishing touches on this early 2009 release, which was recorded by Butchy Fuego at Top Cat Studio. Although the release is not quite complete, you can have a chance to hear some of it performed live when These Are Powers kick off a North American tour this week. This is a sneak preview worth seeking out.

These Are Powers will also be visiting Europe and the UK later this fall. Those dates to be announced very soon.

THESE ARE POWERS TOUR DATES

These Are Powers partner with Dead Oceans

After witnessing the chaos and energy of a These Are Powers live set, we were immediately enthralled with this band, and after a long courtship and some hot and heavy dating, we are excited to announce the start of a long and fruitful union between These Are Powers and Dead Oceans. First, Dead Oceans will re-release of Taro Tarot and Terrific Seasons in October 2008, followed by an LP of new material in the first part of 2009. The band will support the re-releases with tours of both North America and Europe this fall.

To fully grasp the force of a These Are Powers live set, watch the video for “Cockles,” which was assembled using footage from 34 shows in 25 cities, primarily shot on the band’s US tour in February and March 2008. The video also including glimpses of NYC shows in April/May 2008, as well as the band’s set at the Donau Festival in Krems, Austria. Seamlessly edited by director Jacqueline Castel, this video captures the raw power of These Are Powers.
