Other Lives touring in support of 'Mind The Gap' EP

One of my favorite musical discoveries of 2012 is Other Lives. I first saw the Oklahoma band when they opened for Radiohead in Glendale, Arizona on March 15, 2012. I was further impressed when I reviewed the band's potent set at Coachella for The Orange County Register just over a month later on April 20, 2012.

Now with the group having released its latest EP Mind The Gap last week on tbd records, Other Lives is back on the road and not to be missed. Among their upcoming performances is a headlining spot at Los Angeles' El Rey Theatre on Saturday, Nov. 3, 2012.

Here is the official release regarding the band's fall tour and newly-issued Mind The Gap EP, which was recorded in Sutton Courtenay, Oxfordshire, England and features four tracks including a remix of "Tamer Animals" by Thom Yorke's supergroup Atoms For Peace. Again, Other Lives is an incredible band; do yourself a huge favor and see this band.

U.S. Fall Tour continues into early December

Other Lives announce the release of Mind The Gap EP out October 23, 2012 on tbd records.  The EP was recorded by the band this past summer in a studio in Sutton Courtenay, Oxfordshire, England and features the Atoms For Peace remix of "Tamer Animals".  The EP also features the tracks "Dead Can" which was written during the band's recent world tour and was “mostly recorded in the van using a lap top, because we were touring so much. That's what gives it an electro feel" along with "Take Us Alive", which is “based on a violin loop that was written in my parents’ backyard", explains lead singer Jesse Tabish. Look out for Other Lives back on the road on a full U.S. tour this Fall.
