An Horse Releasing Remix EP as They Hit The Road
After two performances at SXSW later this month, the Australian duo will launch a North American tour, which will include two shows with Dashboard Confessional and a six week run with Kaki King that kicks off at New York City's Bowery Ballroom on April 16th.
Beds Rearranged EP features remixes by Gerry "Ghosthouse" Smith (TV On The Radio), Bodega Girls, RAC Collective, MR. F (Tally Hall) and The Phenomenal Handclap Band of five tracks from An Horse's debut album. Rearrange Beds, which was produced by Magoo (Regurgitator, Midnight Oil, Skunkhour) and mixed by Howard Redekopp (The New Pornographers, Tegan and Sara), was released in the States last March. An Horse made its U.S. television debut on "Late Show with David Letterman," and toured with Silversun Pickups last year.
Upon the release of the full length in Canada, An Horse opened for Tegan and Sara on their nationwide Canadian tour. In addition to the upcoming U.S. dates (listed below), they have two more Canadian outings planned and numerous festival appearances scheduled - including the Gurten Festival with Tegan and Sara and others in Switzerland (July 15), the Melt Festival in Germany with The XX, Massive Attack and others (July 17) and the Green Man Festival in the U.K. with The Flaming Lips, Beirut and others (August 20).
An Horse will open for The Big Pink this week in Australia, where Rearrange Beds will be released on March 19th. The album will be released on the same day in Germany, Austria and Switzerland via Grand Hotel van Cleef (former home of Death Cab For Cutie).
Guitarist/vocalist Kate Cooper and drummer Damon Cox met while working in an independent record store in Brisbane, Australia. Talk quickly turned to forming a band and, shortly after they began playing live, the duo landed an opening slot on Tegan and Sara's spring 2008 U.S. tour. While in the States, they came to the attention of Mom+Pop Music Company and became one of the label's first signings.
The track listing for Beds Rearranged EP is as follows:
1. Company (Gerry "Ghosthouse" Smith (TV On The Radio) Remix)
3/19 Austin, TX SXSW-Galaxy Room (10:00pm)
