Experimental Canadian rockers DD/MM/YYYY play Crawdaddy this Sunday, 7th November. In their own words:
Our latest album, Black Square is set for release on Invada Records on November 2, 2010. It is the by-product of van-confined wanderlust, inevitable maturity & our growing comfort level in the studio environment. We do not deviate too far from our origin, but there’s an inherent seriousness that may have evaded previous releases. We don’t have a name and there is no wrong way to say ‘DD/MM/YYYY.’ We are inclined to explore, open to all concepts, and are stubborn only with regards to a ‘no-style’ approach to making music.
Notable inspiration comes to us from the works of Frank Zappa, Melt Banana, DADA art and video games. Anticipate an urgent set of elastic songs – dramatic & tempered by healthy doses of irreverence that make it very hard to stand still. A swat-team style five-man workout along with healthy jogs from one instrument to another, arrangement- swapping, and seemingly random walks on & off the stage. We have supported every release with incessant, warrior-like, touring. Previous tours have paired us with Crystal Castles, Don Caballero, sBACH, Japanther, as well as Video Hippos and saw us crossing paths with Kid Koala, Andrew WK, Matt & Kim, No Age, Marnie Stern, Dan Deacon, Mika Miko, & Iggy Pop & The Stooges.
