Rain Machine: Album, Fall Tour

TV On The Radio at Treasure Island Festival 2008, from the HAD Archive

You may recall that we were super excited to hear about Kyp Malone(of TV On The Radio)'s new solo project Rain Machine. Well, we're happy to say that even more news is starting to become available, and it's all looking super good.

First off, Rain Machine's eponymous debut drops on Anti Records on September 22nd (cover are above). We have the first released track from the record ("Give Blood") for you to check out below, and we have to say: we likey. The track mixes some killer percussives with Malone's trademark vocals to create a track that is not only danceable, but begging for remixes. Do not pass this one up.

What's more, Malone is planning a tour in support of the record, and will be touching down not just on both coasts, but in the middle as well! In New York, that means a hometown stop in Brooklyn at the Bell House, while in San Francisco it'll be an evening at the ever-lovely Independent. Check out all the dates below - excitement!
