Tauk Announces New Album, Tour Dates


Tauk has announced a fall tour to coincide with their upcoming album, Shapeshifter II: Oubreak, which is due out September 28th. The trek will start with a string of festival dates through September before heading into the club circuit.

The album’s concept looks at artificial intelligence and its effect on the world. Tauk calls it their most sonically adventurous, and includes guest artists The Naughty Horns, Nate Werth, and bassist Juan Alderete. Tauk bassist Charlie Dolan said making the record came together nicely.

“Overall the whole process was incredibly organic—there were no constrictions as far as time or space, nothing ever felt forced,” he said in a press release. “There was a greater feeling of possibility, and it ended up being a really liberating experience for all of us.”

Check out the new track “CFM9000”:
