Innerpartysystem Debut Coming in Sept
The album release caps Innerpartysystem's non-stop summer tour grid, which began several weeks ago on fellow Island group ASHES dIVIDE's first tour ever, the band formed by lead guitarist, singer and songwriter Billy Howerdel (of A Perfect Circle). On June 23rd, IPS kicks off a dozen UK club and festival shows (with one side trip to Düsseldorf), their second visit across the pond.
After self-producing The Download EP, IPS recruited a quorum of producers and mixers to work with them on the album. These included: Joel Hamilton (Book of Knots, Sparklehorse, Blue Tip), Mark Needham (the Killers, Pete Yorn), Spike Stent (Björk, Arcade Fire), and Alan Moulder (Smashing Pumpkins, Nine Inch Nails, Jesus & Mary Chain, The Killers) and Stuart Price (Madonna, Seal, The Killers) all of whom brought new ideas on sound and instrumentation to the group.
