Of Montreal New Album, Fall 2008 Tour Dates

Of Montreal

Of Montreal is back with a new album called Skeletal Lamping Collection and a decent set of fall tour dates to support the effort. I love how they’re releasing the album, too:

Of Montreal has unveiled the physical versions of its groundbreaking Skeletal Lamping Collection due out October 21 on Polyvinyl. The collection marks a first in album packaging and design, with seven different packaging formats to choose from when purchasing the forthcoming of Montreal album: A table top floral beast, a lantern, a collection of wall decals, a stallion shaped print, a collection of pins, and a clothing and tote bag line act as the Skeletal Lamping packaging instead.

Now that is style. I’m eager to read the new writeup on Of Montreal and Kevin Barnes in the new Spin that just arrived at my doorstep. He is quite an interesting character, so it’s actually cool to read about him. And the band’s music is just wild thanks to his vision, so I’m hoping to catch their San Francisco date before I head off to Arizona for my little Thanksgiving break. Read on for the tour dates.
