You may recall that John Maus' 2017 release Screen Memories was one of two albums he had on the way, the other being Addendum which was only being released as part of a career-encompassing box set. That box set is out this month, but it's just been announced that Addendum will get its own standalone release on May 18 via Ribbon Music. You can check out "Episode" off the record, as well as the purposely pixelated album art and tracklist, below.

John will be in California this month for Coachella, and after that he'll be back in NYC for the Red Bull Music Festival. His show happens May 4 in Coney Island and they've just shared details for what sounds like a very unique performance:

John Maus will be bringing his visceral and haunting take on synth-pop to Coney Island for what he’s calling The Sucrose Plane: an event where he will perform with his band as well as compose music to play within select rides at Deno's Wonder Wheel Park in conjunction with Red Bull Music Festival. The night will last from 6pm until Midnight at the family owned and New York City landmark, which features attractions like Spook-A-Rama, Stop the Zombies!, Thunderbolt and their iconic 150 foot Wonder Wheel.

Tickets for John Maus' "The Sucrose Plane" are on sale. John has European tour dates this spring and summer as well. All dates are listed below.
