These are Powers headlined the New Years Eve show at Cake Shop this year. Electric Tickle Machine and Dan Friel opened.

These Are Powers' upcoming shows include opening for Ponytail January 23rd at Bell House (Pattern is Movement is also on the bill) (tix), January 30th at Danbro Studios, February 6th at 92yTribeca, and February 13th at Secret Project Robot in celebration of their new Dead Oceans album All Aboard Future (out 2/17).

With All Aboard Future, These Are Powers have embraced collaborators, demonstrating their participating in not only a music community, but a community of ideas. The band invited 13 artists from Chicago, New York and Beijing to interpret All Aboard Future, either drawing from the musical ideas of the album or solely the album title. The artwork adorns the pages of All Aboard Future's accompanying booklet. Photography, painting, collage, text and more--the record becomes the collective expression of artists creating in many media.

All Aboard Future was written and recorded in Chicago during the summer of 2008, and follows the band's 2007 debut LP, Terrific Seasons, and 2008's six song Taro Tarot. All Aboard Future is not just a new album from These Are Powers. It's a seismic shift. A new idea. And the sentiment is real. All Aboard Future!
