Hey Europe! Here they come! The Fantômas European dates are starting to be confirmed. A few more to come. Sorry to say we don't have exact location or ticket info for most of these shows. A lot of festivals obviously. Check out the Roskilde festival!!!!! Maldoror, Fantômas and Kaada/Patton are ALL playing Roskilde and we are working on confirming Patton/Rahzel as well!!! Check the calendar section for updates. We will be adding some of our friends to the opening slot at the club shows.
Oh and the rumor is true. Dave Lombardo will be on the road with his adult contemporary band Slayer at the same time, so the legendary Terry Bozzio will be filling in! Should be quite a show.
Hey European Fantômas fans! We will be announcing June/July tour dates very soon. Mostly festivals. Also, for the month of April, only the limited edition version of SUSPENDED ANIMATION will be available. The simpler packaged version will come out next month. No difference in the music though.
Tuesday, April 12, Fantomas will be stopping by the Virgin Megastore in Union Square at 3pm for a special autograph signing prior to their Irving Plaza show later that night. WSOU will be on hand at the event giving away a pair of tickets to the show and 5 copies of the latest Fantomas release SUSPENDED ANIMATION. Suspended Animation was released this past Tuesday and purchase of the CD from the Virgin Megastore is required to attend the event, so don’t forget your receipt. The Virgin Megastore is located at the corner of 14th street and Broadway.
Happy Birthday to us!!!!!!!!
Thanks for your support!!!!!
So we were doing some spring cleaning at Ipecac and found a lot of trash on the bulletin board. We decided it best to take it down. The kind of crap on there was not what we want to put out as a representation of our label. Too bad you can't have an online community for sharing thoughts and ideas without it being polluted by a handful of morons. Thank you for your continued support.
Hard to beleive it is actually here! Not spring, the damn Locust EP, "Safety Second, Body Last". We've been talking about this one for years and it was worth the wait. One of our favorite freak collectives FINALLY release something on Ipecac! To celebrate, we even invited them to take part in the much anticipated Fatômas, Trevor Dunn's Trio Convulsant US tour!!! They will not be on all shows, so check your local listing. This record might catch some diehard Locust fans off guard, but really, nothing should shock a diehard Locust fan.
Spring is just around the corner... time for some beautiful music.
Ok, how about some music to smack you upside the head and twist you around?
If you are a fan of freakin Bright Eyes you probably won't like GUAPO. But here they are.
Today we proudly release the 6th full length from the acclaimed underground tweakers from London known as GUAPO. The record is called "Black Oni" it is one disturbing piece of music. Hypnotic, driving and relentless. They have been around for 10 years and have opened for Fantômas, the Melvins and Tomahawk so a lot of you might already know them. For the rest of you, it is time to catch up. "Black Oni" in stores now!!!!!
PS tickets for the New York and SanFrancisco Geek shows are on sale NOW!!!
The return of the mighty Dälek!!!! The New Jersey noise-hop trio are back with their 3rd full length, ABSENCE, out now!!!! This is by far their best record ever. Crosses many genres. Critics are raving. The band is touring non stop. Jump on the bandwagon!!! Ipecac all-stars Dälek are back!!!!!!
As you can see in the calendar section, most of the 2005 US Geek tour dates have been announced. A few more to come. The lineup is very nice once again. Unfortunately the Locust will not be with us on all the dates. They actually have morals and won't play Clear Channel venues. Fantômas on the hand are whores and go where the money is!
We need to let you know, once again, that if your city is not listed, it does not mean the bands did not want to go to your city, and it does not mean that we hate your city. It simply means that there was not a club in your city that made a good offer for the tour. The bands don't choose the clubs, the clubs decide to make offers or not. Bitch at your local clubs, not at us or the bands. We love you Ft. Wayne!!!!!
Fantômas are looking into a European tour to start in June and exploring options for Australia and South America too! Stay tuned! Look for other Ipecac bands in your area as well. Isis! Dälek! Guapo! and more!!!!!
At Ipecac, it's ALL on the road in 05!!!!
Check out the calendar section for tour dates by Isis & Dälek!!!!!
Coming soon, it is true, the Geek Tour returns to the US in April with Fantômas, the Locust and Trevor Dunn's Trio Convulsant sharing the stage!!!!! Sick, huh? Dates coming soon!!!
