Dusted Join Perfume Genius For Fall Tour

Dusted has announced that they will be hitting the road this October with Perfume Genius. The tour kicks off in Minneapolis on October 2nd and takes the band to throughout the U.S. and Canada during the month. Live, Dusted challenges the sonic limitations of a two-piece. Vocals and guitar are expelled through small overblown amplifiers and bolstered by a raucous backbone of live drums, 808 samples, and bass synth. Dusted’s debut full-length, Total Dust, was released July 10th on Polyvinyl/Hand Drawn Dracula. The tour dates are as follows:

10/2   Minneapolis, MN @ Bryant Lake Bowl

Dusted have just released the video for “(Into the) Atmosphere“. The video was directed by Aaron Kopff and Paul Gerretsen. Dusted’s Brian Borcherdt had this to say about the experience, “Here’s a video of us playing on a rooftop next to our favourite tequila bar, on a hot Toronto evening.  I think this accurately demonstrates my C+ ability at lip syncing and my A+ ability at making sunglasses suddenly disappear and reappear on my face.”

After six years of constant Holy Fuck touring, Brian Borcherdt emerged from the tangled cables and broken drum machines with a slew of new songs. Looking to explore a different sound, Borcherdt teamed with producer Leon Taheny (Final Fantasy, Rituals, Bruce Peninsula) and together the pair recorded in a converted garage under the name Dusted.

The resulting album, Total Dust, resides in an atmosphere that is sometimes melodic, sometimes haunting, and always clouded by a fuzzy glow. With string arrangements and half-hidden guitar feedback held together by the occasional tambourine and minimal drum machine.
