Amanda Palmer And The Grand Theft Orchestra

Theatre is Evil

Singer, songwriter, piano-slayer, and blogger Amanda Palmer is preparing to release her first studio album in four years, Theatre Is Evil, on September 10th. Amanda and her band The Grand Theft Orchestra - featuring members Michael McQuilken, Chad Raines, and Jherek Bischoff recorded the album in Melbourne with producer John Congleton (St. Vincent, Murder By Death, Modest Mouse, Xiu Xiu). Arguably her most pop-influenced album yet, Theatre Is Evil showcases Amanda s powerful vocals and talented songwriting in ways that may surprise even her most ardent fans. Written over the course of several years (since the release of her last studio album, Who Killed Amanda Palmer), the album offers a collection of sounds and rhythms heavily influenced by the music Palmer grew up listening to most notably 80s synth rock and Brit Pop. From the anthemic Do It With A Rockstar and Melody Dean, to the mighty, horn-induced bop of Massachusetts Avenue, Theatre is Evil is tauntingly playful. At the same time, a more somber, vulnerable Amanda Palmer pulls at our heart strings with ballads like Trout Heart Replica, Grown Man Cry, and the pièce de résistance: The Bed Song, a somber, melancholy track that documents the slow deterioration of a long-term marriage
