Tame Impala the psychedelic recording project of Kevin Parker out of Perth, Australia, signed to Modular Recordings are back this year with a handful of dates all across North America. May 30th will see them at the Ogden Theater at 935 East Colfax Avenue in Denver, Colorado at 9:00PM. These concerts are said to be the testing ground for the bands new material. This new material is a follow-up to their 2012 release of Lonerism, which was met with unanimous critical praise and made it into the Album of the Year polls, and received a Grammy nomination for Best Alternative Music Album. Kevin, also lead singer of the band has been releasing teasers to fans and has decreed that this third album will make “Lonerism look like amateur hour.”
Releasing their self-titled EP in 2008, a five track effort which introduced the band’s bugged out, psychedelic rock, their debut album Innerspeak followed two years later. You can find a complete list of show times and dates for all your Tame Impala tickets here! Never say never in any aspect of your life as you never know from day to day what may change or excite you as Parker found out after saying in 2013 that doing an album was not in his near future as the whole thought of it didn’t excite him then almost a year to the day later he talked of his growing inclination towards making another album, explaining that, “I’m getting more and more sucked into the world of making an album. It’s weird how it happens naturally, it almost feels like a seasonal thing.” On January 6, 2015, Spinning Top Music announced that a new Tame Impala album will be released in 2015. The album cover and their first official single for the upcoming album was released on Facebook called “Cause I’m a Man.”
Tame Impala’s music was heavily influenced by late 1960s and early 1970s psychedelic rock and achieved through various production methods such as, phasing, delay, reverb and fuzz. The only jamming that is done by the band is done in live performances and then only after the music is recorded solely by Parker before the band even plays any of the music.
