Secret Chiefs 3 @ Terminal 5 in 2009 (more by Zach Dilgard)
Genre-spanning, instrumental group Secret Chiefs 3 are currently in the midst of a world tour which will hit Chicago's Empty Bottle this Saturday night (9/17). Trey Spruance (SM3/Mr. Bungle)'s Mimicry Records is home to their tour mates, French drum and synth duo Fat 32.
Chicago-based doom band Anatomy of Habit are first on the bill, and will also be celebrating the release for their debut self titled LP. Empty Bottle will be the first place the album is available for purchase, with distribution via Revolver USA and the band's webstore shortly after. CD and digital versions will be available soon. The LP Package designed by Malsonus (artist Jonathan Canady). The project was recorded by Andrew Ragin of The Atlas Moth at Phase Recording Studios in Highland Park, IL, and was mastered and cut by Bob Weston (Shellac) at Chicago Mastering Service.
Speaking of the Atlas Moth, they have their own show coming up on October 16th at Ultra Lounge.
