Some big changes are coming for IMPLODES in 2014 which will lead to a rather lengthy hiatus. Ken Camden will start of 2014 as a resident of Los Angeles, CA. He's already searching out options for shows so if you'd like to help him out, feel free to contact us here.
Starting in February, Emily will be playing bass with the insanely talented Angel Olsen & her band. There are already plans to tour into the summer with more dates likely to come. You can peep the dates on Angel's page.
Implodes is about halfway through writing a third album and we definitely plan on finishing it as soon as we can.
Kranky 20 has shaped up to be a killer fest. Ken was very involved in making this festival happen so let's all clap a bit for him.
Due to some interesting life changes and cool opportunities, Implodes won't be playing live again for some time. So if you're in the Chicago area on 12/12 please check us out as you won't see on a stage again for a good while. Recording projects are already in the works & who knows what else the future will bring. More details soon...
Back in 2007, Matt played bass for SLINT on three tours including shows the UK, US & Europe. Slint are once again reuniting to play the last ever ATP Holiday Camp along with shows in Manchester & London. Kranky label-mate Lucinda Chua (previously known as FELIX) will open in Manchester & London. Be sure to say 'hi' to that beardo if you see him.
