Telefon Tel Aviv announce first LP in 10 years, share new single, playing shows
Joshua Eustis brought Telefon Tel Aviv out of retirement in 2016, which was the first time since the tragic death of his musical partner, Charlie Cooper, back in 2009. He's now back with the first new TTA album in 10 years, titled Dreams Are Not Enough which will be out September 27 via Ghostly. The label says Eustis, who has worked with Nine Inch Nails, Puscifer, Apparat and others in the last 10 years, decided to return to Telefon Tel Aviv after "years of reflection and processing gradually seeded in him a desire to revive TTA and venture a fourth full-length, in the spirit of what they started." You can check out the album's first single -- the eerie, beautiful "standing at the bottom of the ocean."
Telefon Tel Aviv has a few live shows lined up this fall, including Ghostly's 20th anniversary celebrations in San Francisco featuring Matthew Dear's Audion project, Shigeto, Lusine, Gold Panda, Khotin, E.L. Butler, and Galcher Lustwerk, and a Brooklyn show at National Sawdust on October 16 (tickets).
There are also shows in Nashville, Miami and in Europe. All dates are listed below.
There is also a Ghostly 20 event in Brooklyn at Elsewhere on October 5. TTA is not on the lineup but it does feature sets from Gold Panda, Shigeto, Beacon, Heathered Pearls (DJ), Ouri, The Sight Below, Logan Takahashi, Lord RAJA (DJ), Starchild & The New Romantic (DJ), Matthew Dear (DJ), Galcher Lustwerk (DJ), Ciel (DJ), Michna (DJ), and Xeno & Oaklander (DJ). Tickets are on sale.
Dreams Are Not Enough tracklist
1. I dream of it often:
2. a younger version of myself,
3. standing at the bottom of the ocean;
4. arms aloft,
5. mouth agape,
6. eyes glaring,
7. not seeing,
8. not breathing,
9. still as stone in a watery fane.
