NewVillager - IAMSOUND

NewVillager announce the release of their official self-titled debut coming June 21 on IAMSOUND. Ben Bromley and Ross Simonini, splitting their time between Brooklyn and San Francisco, lead the project and weave mythology throughout their music and art.  Functioning as an artist collective, NewVillager brings multiple dimensions to their sound with visual direction from Ben Dickinson (LCD Soundsystem, the Rapture, Q-tip, etc), live drums and video by Collin Palmer, and a cast of characters reminiscent of a Wonderland-esque board game come to life. To coincide with the album release, there are also plans for art shows and installations across the country as well as live tour and a book release to follow.  The album will be available digitally and in retails stores this summer.
