NEW YORK, NY (PRWEB) August 21, 2006
After a highly successful digital pre-release featured on the front-page of the US & Canadian iTunes Music Stores, Shimmerplanet celebrates the physical CD release of their poly-genre album “ For The One Who Kills Tomorrow." Get physical with Shimmerplanet on Tuesday September 12, 2006 at 7pm at, of course, a gym: emPower Fitness Studios, 224 West 4th Street, Second Floor, New York, NY 10014.
In keeping with their tradition of performing in non-traditional spaces (recent concerts have been staged in a public library, a strip-club, and a church), Shimmerplanet, the Indie band created by Soren Anders, has teamed up with a personal training gym, emPower Fitness Studios who will be hosting the release event. The band will perform live (featuring cello plus a full plugged-in complement), transforming emPower Fitness Studios into a performance space.
“For The One Who Kills Tomorrow,” a highly emotional disc is inspired by the extravagance and musicianship of Björk and Rufus Wainwright, and showcases Anders' dark, confessional lyrics as well as his classical training. He has created an album that successfully fuses elements of alternative, rock, classical, jazz and electronic music. The resulting unique sound appeals to fans of truly innovative and intelligent music.
Continuing her collaboration with Anders, the immortal Lesley Gore (legendary artist of "It's My Party" and "You Don't Own Me") appears as a guest vocalist on one of the new tracks, "Siren". Gore is one of three singers (including Anders) heard on “For The One Who Kills Tomorrow.” Avant-garde New York vocalist Carolyn Eufrasio returns in her role as Shimmerplanet's Yin, singing lead on many of the new songs. Recorded in New York City, the album is a testament to the recording ingenuity of producer Blake Morgan, who also helmed the studio for Shimmerplanet's debut album, “Welcome to Shimmerplanet.” Eufrasio is currently touring as Ms. Gore's back-up singer.
Shimmerplanet’s debut album “Welcome To Shimmerplanet” received critical acclaim and they also received special recognition from The Songwriters’ Hall Of Fame for their single “No Safe.”
