Alcoholic Faith Mission Book Some Dates
To coincide with the U.S. release of their new album on Paper Garden Records on April 27, Alcoholic Faith Mission will be heading out on a "tour" of the northeastern U.S in April and May.
Let This Be The Last Night We Care, the band's third album, seems destined to become one of the summer's ubiquitous favorites. It is equal parts melancholy and celebratory, electronic and organic – propelled along by shout-sung choruses, stacked harmonies, walls of electric guitar, analog clicks and crashes. The album's hallmarks are its seemingly infinite textures, and beautiful melodies sung with a sense of urgency to often despondent lyrics.
The name of the band is more of an ironic corruption of "apostolic faith mission," than a nod to the over-indulgence it implies. It's from a neon sign in Brooklyn from which Thorben Seierø Jensen and Sune Sølund set off on their search for a musical road-less-traveled.
The momentum behind those beginnings might have come from the so-called straightjackets that the two Danes cloak themselves in to compose. Rules. For the first album, there was a dire regimen of late-night recordings in the bedroom of a tiny Copenhagen flat lit only by candlelight. Other essentials included improvised percussion instruments and a drinking requirement.
