Irreverent German production duo Modeselektor has announced the October 4 release of Monkeytown, its latest LP and first in four years, on its own Monkeytown Records. Containing a star-studded cast of guest artists that includes Thom Yorke, Busdriver, PVT, Anti-Pop Consortium, and Miss Platinum, Monkeytown promises to focus on the dancefloor while continuing the tradition of the duo’s schizophrenic sonic explorations. Not content to just release an album, they’ve also announced a North American tour as a part of the Identity Festival starting with a date at Chicago’s historic Lollapalooza festival.
