Japan awaits Perfume Genius

By Stuart on Friday, April 11th, 2014

Having aired new material recently at SXSW (“The minimalist and aggressively electronic-driven track was harder, weirder, and darker than anything we’ve heard from him yet. Will Perfume Genius make his Yeezus in 2014? Let us pray.” said Pitchfork ), Mike takes the show on the road for a newly announced Japanese date in addition to the End Of The Road and OFF festivals this August.

The upcoming Perfume Genius shows look like this, with more in the works:
June 21-22, 2014 - Hostess Club Weekender – Tokyo, Japan (Tickets)
August 1-3, 2014 – OFF Festival – Katowice, Poland (Tickets)
August 29 – 31, 2014 – End Of The Road Festival – Wiltshire, UK (Tickets)

‘THE FUTURE’S VOID’ IS OUT NOW

By Rian on Tuesday, April 8th, 2014

The time is now. Facebook bought Oculus Rift  for $2 billion two weeks ago.  Erika wrote “Satellites” pre-NSA/Snowden. This record is about the time we are living in right now. ‘The Future’s Void’ is officially out today and not a moment too soon.

Erika posted the lyrics to the record on her blog as well as made a statement. See below:

Like the best of rock lyrics, my intention was that many of these words and lines can be interpreted in different ways.  This includes puns or phrases that take on double meanings as they are repeated.  Similar to “The Future’s Void”…  (solace/soulless, earn/urn, my Lucifer/might loose some fur, etc)

A few of these songs I pored over and edited heavily, but most of them were written through improvisation and quite often the take where the lyrics are still being written is the one that ended up on the track.  I like the urgency of that “first take” vibe, and I like the quality of something that is being created in the moment.  I feel like there is a simplicity and a truth to it, and that often gets taken away if you spend too much time consciously editing.

Pop in your local record store, choice of digital outlet OR order ‘The Future’s Void’ directly from us on CD, Cassette and LP (limited edition lavender vinyl), and there’s a shirt bundle, too.

ATTN NYC: EMA will be playing Union Pool on Friday, April 11. The only way to obtain a ticket is by purchasing ‘The Future’s Void’ at one of the following NYC record stores:
