DeVotchKa Return With The Night Falls Forever
Standing at the surprising crossroads of indie rock and Eastern European folk music, DeVotchKa's unique blend of DIY punk, traditional dance music, norteno, burlesque and vintage cinema sounds first came to international attention when they received a Grammy nomination for their soundtrack to the 2006 Oscar-winning indie flick Little Miss Sunshine. The band breaks six years of radio silence with the late 2018 release of their 11th studio album This Night Falls Forever, hitting the road this fall to bring their long-awaited new material to stages across North America.
If the album's lead single 'Empty Vessels' is anything to go by, DeVotchKa are back with a vengeance and as ambitious as ever. Textured orchestral arrangements, percussive synths and the classic indie rock band set up herald a return to fine form. Weather backed by a full orchestra or performing in more intimate settings, the genre-bending outfit produces a stunning live sound that's passionate, somehow danceable and relatable thanks to frontman Nick Urata's gravel-edged, heartbreaking croon and candid lyrics laden with personal stories and emotional depth.
