DOWNLOAD: Tortoise - Prepare Your Coffin (MP3)
Tortoise has added a July 18th in-store performance at Other Music to its schedule of upcoming shows. The band is on tour in support of Beacons of Ancestorship, out now on Thrill Jockey. "Prepare Your Coffin," above, is from that record.
To get into the in-store, Other Music writes:
The price of admission is the purchase of their new album from us in any format (CD, LP or MP3 download), 1 ticket per purchase, limit 2 purchases per person. As you can imagine, capacity is extremely limited, so grab one while you can, they won't last.That performances comes three days before the band's July 21st show at (Le) Poisson Rouge with Grey Reverend. Tickets for that are still on sale.
Those tour dates are just two stops in the band's show-filled summer. They tour North American in July, with a European tour in August, and random show scheduled through December.
Tortoise recently played NYC gigs at the Bell House on May 30th and the Bang on a Can Marathon on the 31st. Outside the group, Tortoise founding member John McEntire has been producing the forthcoming Broken Social Scene album.
