The Posies


One of the most distinctive and respected alternative-pop bands, The Posies, unite to unleash their long-awaited new album, Blood/Candy (Ryko), and launch their international tour on September 28, 2010. Fresh off the Frosting On The Beater full-album shows and their work with Big Star, The Posies chart unforeseen territory on Blood/Candy while holding onto their well-known signature sound. The Huffington Post states, "depending on how you want to hear it, it's a brilliant return to form or a daring move forward." The almost entirely self-produced record boasts melodic hooks, provocative lyrics, and intricate layers of instrumentation that blend far-out, spacey sounds with sophisticated hues. The bulk of the album was recorded and mixed in Spain and their hometown of Seattle, with stops in Ecuador, Canada, Paris and Los Angeles. "After the eclecticism of our last album, we thought it would be a good idea to make a kind of classic, back to our roots album, guitar pop with lots of harmonies, etc. We didn't end up doing that--however, what stands in place of that, is an album even more adventurous, more playful, and more heartfelt than I think we've ever done. If I had to pick one album for us to be reme mbered by and delete all the others, no doubt that I would choose this one," says co-founder Ken Stringfellow. Jon Auer, also original co-founder, adds, "With Blood/Candy, We definitely sound like us, but some of these songs are completely from an alternate Posies universe. We subscribe to the "evolve or perish" philosophy. We directed ourselves to new places with this recording and tried not to travel down familiar paths when it could be avoided. Expect the unexpected." Since the band's inception in the late 80s in Seattle, The Posies - known for their cross-pollination of pop and rock - have maintained a consistent career throughout the years. Noted for hits like "Golden Blunders", recorded by Ringo Starr in 1992, along with "Dream All Day", "Solar Sister" and "Flavor of the Month" from their pivotal release Frosting On The Beater, the group has developed a massive cult following and critical acclaim. The Posies will tour extensively this fall. The Europe tour schedule is below, and U.S. dates will be announced soon. Una de las bandas más distintivas y respetadas del pop, The Posies, anuncian su tan esperado nuevo álbum Blood/Candy (Ryko), y su gira internacional prevista para el 28 de septiembre de 2010. The Posies tabla territorio imprevisto en álbum Blood/Candy mientras se apoya en su característico sonido bien conocido. La mayor parte del álbum fue grabado y mezclado en España y su ciudad natal de Seattle y cuenta con ganchos melódicos, letras provocativas e instrumentos que mezclan sonidos espaciales con sonidos sofisticados. El co-fundador Ken Stringfellow lo define como"Es un álbum más arriesgado, más divertido y más sincero que jamás hemos hecho. Si tuviera que elegir un álbum para que ser recordados, no cabe duda de que yo elegiría éste". Jon Auer, también co-fundador original, añade: "Definitivamente suena como nosotros, Espera lo inesperado. " Desde el inicio de la banda a finales de los 80, The Posies - conocidos por su mezcla de pop y rock - han mantenido una carrera consistente a lo largo de los años. A través de éxitos como "Golden Blunders", grabado por Ringo Starr en 1992, junto con "Dream All Day", "Solar Sister" y "Flavor of the Month" de su album "Frosting On The Beater", la banda se ha convertido en grupo de culto y ha sido aclamada por la crítica.
