Experimental indie-rock band Of Montreal will spend New Year’s Eve 2009 in hometown Athens, Georgia to finish the U.S. leg of their extensive tour in support of their ninth studio album, Skeletal Lamping. The rest of the new year will find the psychedelic-pop rockers back in Europe and the Land of Oz.

Meanwhile Of Montreal continue their hectic tour schedule, record label Polyvinyl plans to release and EP featuring Jon Brion’s remixes of tracks off of Skeletal Lamping, such as “Gallery Piece” and “An Eluardian Instance,” along with other intruiging inclusions. Look for the Jon Brion Remix EP online on January 6 and on shelves, as CD and LP, on January 27. If you can’t make it to Georgia for NYE (or any of Of Montreal’s many other stops, for that matter), you can experience the costume changes and other madness on December 18, when the band pays a visit to “The Late Show with David Letterman.” Photo by Rennie Solis
