Antony and the Vinyl Johnsons

(PR) Antony and the Johnsons will release the "Aeon"/"Crazy in Love" double A-side single in the US on August 4th on CD and 7" through Secretly Canadian and on August 3rd in Europe and UK on 7" through Rough Trade.

Those who preorder the 7" of "Aeon" will receive a free copy of Zoetrope Magazine. The issue was curated by Antony and features his artwork. Zoetrope is Francis Ford Coppola's quarterly magazine devoted to the best new short-fiction and one-act plays.

The band is currently on a European leg of their world tour. The summer shows see them playing with some of the most esteemed symphonies in Europe in prestigious venues including La Carre in Amsterdam, Manchester Opera House, and the Grand Theatre Romain de Fouviere in Lyon (dates below).

"Aeon" is one of the highlights of the critical and commercial smash album "The Crying Light" which debuted at #1 on the European chart. The band appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman for the song's television debut. Antony and the Johnsons' earnest and impassioned cover of Beyonce's "Crazy in Love", a long time live favorite, is being released officially for the first time.

"The Crying Light" is the band's follow up to the Mercury prize winning "I Am a Bird Now" and was released on January 20 through Secretly Canadian.
