New Ghostland Observatory and Tour!

Austin's Ghostland Observatory is set to release their next album, Robotique Majestique, February 26th. Along with album comes a tour. So far, only a limited amount of shows are announced, but lucky for us in the IA area, D.C. happens to have a date. I highly recommend getting tickets early to this show and grabbing the new disc when it arrives.

I have seen these guys before, when they were a fill-in for a cancelled band at the ACL Fest. Never having heard them before, I had no idea what to expect. I was converted during the first song. Only a duo, these guys put on one hell of a show. Front-man guitarist Aaron Behrens prowls the stage with the presence not unlike Freddie Mercury, while producer-drummer Thomas Turner, usually decked out in a high collar cape, lays down sweet synth lines over wicked beats. Check out the new track from the upcoming album, and you will know what I am saying.
