Thievery Corporation readies Culture of Fear for June 28 release

p1015322-copy.jpgRenowned DJ duo Thievery Corporation have announced details of their sixth studio album, Culture of Fear, set for release on June 28th on ESL Music. The release will kick-off with a live show at the Williamsburg Waterfront in Brooklyn on June 24th and the full live band will be doing a run of shows throughout the summer, including trips to Portugal, Hungary, Greece, Turkey, Australia and a headline show at Red Rocks on August 14th.

With over 1.2 million albums sold in the U.S. across 15 years of making music, Thievery Corporation serves up their sixth studio album titled Culture of Fear.  They continue to blend musical styles in their trademark fashion; space-rock jams lead to hip-hop inspired grooves, airy down-temp trances and dub-reggae infused vibes throughout the journey

Tracks include “Web of Deception,” a 70’s space-rock-funk homage to bands like Mystic Moods Orchestra, “Take My Soul,” a rock/soul/electronic jam featuring longtime Thievery Corporation Persian singer LouLou, an epic instrumental titled “Fragments,” as well as collaborations with Bitter Sweet vocalist Shana Halligan on “Is It Over?” and Boston hip-hop artist Mr. Lif on the title track, “Culture of Fear.”

Over the years, Thievery Corporation has become known for the carnival-esque atmosphere of their live shows, during which they bring out a 15-member live band of musicians and vocalists. The group has sold out shows at such famed venues as the Hollywood Bowl, London’s 02 Shepherds Bush Empire, and the Theatro Vrahon Melina Merkouri in Athens, Greece, among many others.
