ATP Recordings are delighted to announce that we will release the debut album from Anywhere - a new collaborative projected started by Christian Eric Beaulieu (Triclops!, Liquid Indian) and Cedric Bixler Zavala (The Mars Volta, At The Drive-In) alongside very special guests Mike Watt (The Stooges, fIREHOSE, Minutemen) and providing guest vocals alongside Cedric, Rachel Fannan (ex-Sleepy Sun). This will be the band's first full release following 2 very limited sold out 7" singles.

The album will first be available exclusively as part of Record Store Day 2012 which takes place on April 21 (more info at recordstoreday.com) and will be limited to 500 copies on 12" aqua coloured vinyl (with Download code).

The CD & Digital releases will follow on Monday 14th May with CD and Digital pre-orders available via ATPRecordings.com

Biography:

Anywhere began as a LA/SF collaborative project started by musicians Christian Eric Beaulieu and Cedric Bixler Zavala. Fresh off years of writing and touring as co-founder of Bay Area acid punk extremists Triclops!, Christian decided to immerse himself in the resonant universe of acoustic guitar and began performing solo under the moniker Liquid Indian. In early 2010 while in Los Angeles to perform at an art opening of mutual friend artist Sonny Kay, he befriended Cedric (singer of The Mars Volta) who was a DJ for the event. The two exchanged numbers and planned to record something acoustic rooted in the open tuning, eastern raga style Christian was delving into. Months later the pair met in Los Angeles, enlisted the mobile engineering talent of Toshi Kasai (Big Business) and tracked the new material in 2 days at The Melvins practice space in downtown Los Angeles. During that same visit Christian played live on "The Watt from Pedro Show" as the musical guest of Mike Watt (of The Stooges, fIREHOSE, Minutemen).

After the show before leaving San Pedro, Christian realized they needed bass for the recordings and boldly asked Watt if he'd contribute. Watt agreed immediately and a few months later delivered the entire projects bass tracks. Returning to San Francisco, Christian decided to reach out to vocalist Rachel Fannan, who had recently parted ways with Bay Area psych rockers Sleepy Sun and had relocated to Los Angeles. Having never met Christian before, Rachel generously contributed vocals to two of the songs, while Cedric performed vocals on three tracks leaving the rest to exist as instrumentals.

While searching for a label to release the album, Christian solicited the talent of SF psychedelic poster artist Alan Forbes. During a meeting to discuss art concepts, Alan revealed that he, along with his Secret Serpents business partner Justin Mcneal, had started a label called Valley King Records. They agreed to release a pair of singles as a series of limited edition silk-screened cover 7"s, all signed and hand numbered by Forbes.

The music captured on this material is an ethereal, resonant execution of what could be described as eastern acoustic punk. Likened to the voyeurism of Sandy Bull, Sir Richard Bishop, or Jack Rose style raga's reinterpreted at times with Drive Like Jehu, Minutemen punk velocity, other moments emotionally spiraling toward a haunting, ethereal beauty akin to Vashti Bunyan lost in the desert of a desolate western. Blending acoustic and minimal electric guitars with a multitude of percussion instrumentation, digital tabla machines, sci fi electronics and feedback, this avant garde collective of envelope pushing splatter artists have created a new presence. Modern mantras of electric silence that fuse consciousness into a recording of vibrant, transitional material, blending geographic as well as cultural diversity. The sound of stillness amidst chaos, light below the depths, dancing full circle into the center of what could only be called Anywhere.

Does this mean it'll be first-come-first-serve for vinyl at record stores? No pre-order?

So pumped for this, was hoping there would be more tracks than that though (especially since I've already heard four of them).

How exactly can we get this internationally? (Brisbane Australia, specifically) They won't exactly ship a couple of the 500 or even 1 per record store that participates...? I am screwed yes?

If anyone in the US is kind enough to buy a copy for themselves and another to post it down under, I'll pay for it and give you some extra $ for your time and generosity.

I hope that they'll have this at Coachella at the record store, because Record Store day is during that weekend. It's a shame I won't be able to hit up all the record stores that day though

So are they distributing these to record stores participating with record store day? No online order from ATP? How should I go about buying this on April 21st?

The original press release/blurb about the band said that Rachel sang on two tracks and Cedric sang on three. So looks like the three tracks we haven't heard yet will consist of one with Rachel singing and two with Cedric.

So will there be an additional pressing on vinyl besides the one done for RSD?
If the RSD pressing will be the only one on vinyl than it's going to be difficult to get.
But the artwork is really nice.
