Porcelain Raft announced their North American tour dates today. The tour is in support of the new album Permanent Signal out August 20th. Listen to the first single, “Think Of The Ocean”, above and then check out the tour dates below.
Porcelain Raft premiered the song “Think Of The Ocean” today, from the upcoming Permanent Signal release, with visuals also by Mauro Remiddi (recording under the PR moninker since 2010). Permanent Signal is a phrase that symbolizes a phone line that is without a connection for a long period of time, a state Remiddi related to while being on tour, away from friends and family. Recorded at the end of 2012, Permanent Signal found Remiddi selling the instruments he used to record his full-length debut, Strange Weekend, in order to “start with a new color palette.” Using new tools and sounds, Remiddi also enlisted the help of Jonny Rogoff (Yuck) on drums, Darby Cicci (Antlers) on bass and Gaspar Claus (collaborator of Sufjan Stevens and The National) on cello.
Watch the visual for “Think Of The Ocean” above and check the tracklist and album cover below for Permanent Signal out August 20th on Secretly Canadian.
With August 20th steadily approaching, Porcelain Raft‘s new album, Permanent Signal, is almost here! In anticipation for the release Porcelain Raft just dropped an album trailer on our Youtube channel.
Here’s a new EP from Porcelain Raft! Titled Silent Speech, the record features instrumental tracks created while Mauro worked on his new album. You can read more about the process, which includes selling all of his instruments and acquiring a modular synth, HERE. Stream “Playground” from the EP below, and head to Soundcloud for the entire EP.
