As recently mentioned, Modeselektor will be back this summer as part of the Identity Festival that hits both Jones Beach and PNC Bank Arts Center. According to the listed lineup, they will be playing "live" at those dates. Their most recent trip to North America also had them DJing. A full list of dates is below.
In October, we get a new album: "Monkeytown (most likely a ten-track album) features collaborations with a slew of special guests, including Thom Yorke on two songs, Busdriver, PVT, Anti Pop Consortium, and Miss Platnum. It will be released on September 30th in Germany, October 3rd in the UK, and October 4th in the USA. There will be no album pre-singles, however, there will be 3 or 4 singles following the album."
"Monkeytown" is also the name of Modeselektor's record label which has been releasing Siriusmo albums including a new one that collects 42 tracks that were released individually between 2000-2010. Siriusmo was also just here with Modeselektor when they played Mutek and Webster Hall as part of their "Modeselektion" nights. Modeselektion is also the name of a compilation series they're releasing on the label.
