Akron/Family Release < bmbz > Digitally On June 28th

On Record Store Day this past April, Akron/Family released an experimental collaboration with kindred spirits based around S/T II: The Cosmic Birth and Journey of Shinju TNT-- on double LP only called < bmbz >. The project is an expansion of their new album, creating a redefinition of the original work, that bends and explodes the original songs into entirely different forms in an artistic action that raises questions of what a 'definitive' release really is, and offers a critique of the very nature of releasing music in the modern digital world. For those who weren't lucky enough to snag one of the limited edition Record Store day copies in April, good news! Akron/Family's < bmbz > will be released digitally next week, on June 28th to all digital retailers.
The band is also streaming the entire < bmbz > double album on their own Family Tree Records bandcamp page right now. If you're still curious as to what exactly this project is, there's a full explanation of the genesis of the project straight from AKAK themselves on the Akron/Family website. Both sites are linked below. And stay tuned in July, as Akron/Family returns to Japan where the creative process for S/T II: The Comsic Birth and Journey of Shinju TNT began, touring there for the first time. You can find full tour dates below.
