As mentioned in this interview with mxdwn, the band is known for their experimental style and shock factor. The band’s newest experiment with the human senses will take place in New York at The Temple of Dendur at the Metropolitan Musuem of Art on May 18th. The group has discussed doing a musical performance like this with mxdwn before and now it seems as if what they’ve been dreaming of is finally coming true.

We’ve been approached to do something similar to that. It’s not that we haven’t considered it. You dream about things and how you’d execute something like that. Right now it’s just finding the time to do it you know. Right now the guys, we’re really excited about making songs, making records. More direct things of that nature. Where it’s just songwriting and how to make songs out of these sounds. I think it’s kind of an endless asset to be stuck on, rather than just being interested in percussion or something. It seems like making songs out of these sounds and making songs that hopefully connect with people and are catchy or they’re sad. It seems to be very rewarding at the moment. And it’s not too much different from what we always been saying it’s just more lead-in than what we recognize as the focus. It’s not that we wouldn’t be thrilled to do something like that where we create an environment and a soundtrack to it, but I think that there’s also a big mystery with us. Where again, it’s a matter of confidence of knowing what that environment is and do we know ourselves well enough to create something that communicates where we’re at. That’s bigger than a record. I sort of feel like we’re finding out a lot more about ourselves as time goes on. We’ve been a band for quite a while now but still there’s so many things that are being uncovered about us and how we work and what we’re interested in. Sometimes there’s things, not regrets, but they sort of go backwards with the same things that we were interested in when we first became a band and again that’s the nature of the album’s title being a palindrome. Again, it’d be a great honor but if we were to execute it would probably involve a lot of doubt and mystery at this point with where we’re at as people to create that environment.

This performance will be a part of the Wordless Music Series. However, although the performance will have no words, there will certainly be much depth to the performance through music and through our other senses. This performance will lead the audience on a journey that goes much deeper than a song or record.
