The Avalanches Videos
It's been 16 years since The Avalanches released their one and only record, Since I Left You. Yesterday, however, they released a teaser video featuring Father John Misty, Danny Brown, Ariel Pink, Royal Trux's Jennifer Herrema, and Kirin J. Callinan. And in April they announced multiple festival gigs for this summer. Does this mean new music is on the horizon from The Avalanches?
The fact is, nobody really knows. For years rumors have been circling about a forthcoming album, and the teaser video pokes fun at the gossip and speculation. Father John Misty joins in the tomfoolery as well - at least we think he might be - when asked "Josh, can you tell us about your involvement in The Avalanches?" He responds, "What are The Avalanches?" The video even manages to tease and tickle a little further by telling viewers something is "coming soon," followed by the word "hopefully."
Here's what we do know, The Avalanches will be playing a total of seven shows this summer. The first will be in Barcelona at the Primavera Sound festival on June 3rd. After Primavera, they will head to England for three more festival gigs before heading back home for a show set at Splendour in the Grass, and then they will play one more concert in Japan. After that will they ride off into the sunset or release new music? Still, no idea.
Nonetheless, check out the video and have a good little inner chuckle:
