Disco Biscuits announce Thanksgiving and New Years performances

The Disco Biscuits have announced seven performances that will comprise the band’s 2009 Holiday schedule. Set to cap off one of the band’s most prolific years of touring to date, the band’s holiday performances will feature a Thanksgiving weekend, two-night stand at the Electric Factory, in the band’s hometown of Philadelphia:  Friday and Saturday, November 27-28.

The band is also poised to reprise last year’s successful, five-night, New Years run at New York City’s Nokia Theatre, December 26, 27, 29, 30, and 31, ringing in the New Year well into the wee hours of 2010 at the Times Square venue. Ticket info, support, and official late night performance announcements are scheduled to follow on www.DiscoBiscuits.com

As The Disco Biscuits wind down what is being called one of the band’s best years on the road in over a decade of touring, a series of EPs is scheduled to release this fall, leading up to the new album, Planet Anthem. Scheduled for release in January 2010, Planet Anthem is bound to be the talk of the 2009 Holiday season as the band polishes and explores the album for their live repertoire.

The limited edition EPs will be released throughout the fall in six week increments and will include singles, remixes, and music videos. The first, due out in September, will be available on the band’s website, on tour, online, and as a limited edition retail package. The Disco Biscuits are now offering free downloads of two tracks from Planet Anthem, “Konkrete” and “You and I,” on the band’s website: www.DiscoBiscuits.com.

Fans can also join The Disco Biscuits, Umphrey’s McGee and other favorite acts for five days, in Jamaica, at Caribbean Holidaze, December 10-14 (www.caribbeanholidaze.com). The 800-person, intimate island adventure features an all-inclusive resort, fun on and off-site activities with the festival artists, three shows each from The Disco Biscuits and Umphrey’s McGee, and relaxing, tropical Jamaican days and nights.
