UC is thrilled to spread the good word that The Russian Futurists is back with a stunning new album – The Weight’s On The Wheels – due out November 16th. The Futurists produced the new album with the aid of Michael Musmanno (Outkast, Lilys, Arrested Development) and sonically takes his sound out of the bedroom and onto the airwaves. The Weight’s On The Wheels captures the Futurists in full pop regalia from start to finish.
You want a taste? The band is giving away the first track “Hoeing Weeds Sowing Seeds” from the LP at www.russianfuturists.com. The song is mixed by Grammy Award Winner Michael Brauer, who has mixed everything from Luther Vandross “Never Too Much” to Coldplay’s “Viva La Vida”.
But Wait! There’s More! HOEING WEEDS SOWING SEEDS + REMIXES EP includes incredible remixes by DVAS, Melee Beats and Johan Sigerud that take this new jam by The Russian Futurists in seriously radical directions. Available immediately at the UC Boutique, and iTunes starting tomorrow, Sept 20th.
We are so very excited to release The Weight’s On The Wheels – The Russian Futurists have made a stunning pop monster, and we think you’re going to lose your mind. In the meantime, we highly recommend you grab the Hoeing Weeds Sowing Seeds + Remixes EP.
If you didn’t catch The Russian Futurists on tour with Caribou last week, there’s still one more chance September 30th at the POP Montreal 2010 UC Throwdown at Juste Pour Rire.
Stay tuned for much more news on music and touring by The Russian Futurists!
