Telekinesis Announces New Album and Tour Coming Through Triangle

On Sunday, Telekinesis’ Michael Lerner posted a mustache-clad selfie superimposed by, “1/08/2013 IMMA BE ALL UP IN YOUR INTERNET. STAY TUNED.” And it’s not like fans of Telekinesis have been waiting for word of a new Telekinesis album for 692 days or anything.

Yesterday, fans of Telekinesis were given a lot to get excited about. In store this spring are a new album and a full length tour from the band. Telekinesis’ Michael Lerner announced the upcoming release of the band’s third full-length album, entitled Dormarion. The album is slated for release on April 2, 2013 by the triangle’s own Merge Records. Lerner previously worked with Chris Walla of Death Cab for Cutie on the recording of the 2009 debut album, fittingly titled Telekinesis!, and 2013’s Domarion will feature production work by Spoon’s Jim Eno.

The tour following the album’s release will stop in the Triangle on May 5 at The Local 506. As the album will feature talented musicians borrowed from other acts, it is no surprise that the tour will showcase some as well. You can look foward to seeing Say Hi’s Erik Elbogen, The Globes’ Eric Walters, and Wild Flag’s Rebecca Cole trotting across the continent with Lerner as Telekinesis.

You can check out a single from the upcoming Domarion, “Ghosts and Creatures,” here.
