Entitled THEATRE IS EVIL, the album was recently recorded in Melbourne with producer John Congleton (St. Vincent, Murder By Death, Modest Mouse, Xiu Xiu). Palmer and GTO will embark on a six-city summer tour, unveiling the new album as a series of intimate performances alongside a dynamic visual art exhibit featuring thirty contemporary artists including Francis Bean Cobain, Shepard Fairey, Kristin Hersh (Throwing Muses), David Mack, and Cynthia Von Buhler. Arguably her most pop-influenced album yet, THEATRE IS EVIL showcases Amanda's powerful vocals and talented songwriting in ways that.

Album · 2012 · 16 Songs. On Theatre Is Evil, the gifted songwriter and pianist hones her melodic strategies and affinity for new wave–ish hooks, and she directs a cast of contributors who deliver runaway horns, crashing guitars, glowering bass, and cinematic strings. Palmer’s lyrical prowess stings and tickles: Are you really sure you wanna go/When you can do it with a rock star? she begs on the title track

Palmer and her Grand Theft Orchestra build Theatre Is Evil on a foundation of retro-neon concrete (the 1984 Robin Williams, Soviet-era comedy Moscow on the Hudson is referenced at one point) with delinquent panache, giving nods to 'Til Tuesday and Kate Bush ("The Killing Type"), David Bowie ("Grown Man Cry"), the Knack (. "Melody Dean"), and even Alphaville (the intro to "Want It Back" threatens to explode into "Forever Young" before morphing into a summery, upbeat radio jam that wouldn’t have sounded out of place on the Cars' Candy-O.

Amanda Palmer + The Grand Theft Orchestra - Theatre Is Evil Album Lyrics. Bottom Feeder Lyrics.

Amanda Palmer is a performer, director, blogger and musician who founded the internationally acclaimed punk cabaret band The Dresden Dolls. In 2008, Amanda released her debut solo album, Who Killed Amanda Palmer, produced by Ben Folds and accompanied by a fine art photography book featuring text by esteemed author Neil Gaiman (who Palmer has since married). Amanda also tends a widely-read blog and twitter-feed and was dubbed The Social Media Queen of Rock-N-Roll by The Huffington Post.

Album: Theatre Is Evil, 2012.

Amanda Palmer, Grand Theft Orchestra Theatre Is Evil. After all the buildup, it’s a wonder to behold: Amanda Palmer and the Grand Theft Orchestra’s Theatre Is Evil is over 70 minutes of kitchen sink goodness, produced deftly by John Congleton. The ’80s hovers like a ghost over Theatre Is Evil. Smile (Pictures Or It Didn’t Happen) is just the entry point for Palmer’s Exacto knife explorations of the human condition. Highlights include: The Killing Type, (peep the brand new Tim Pope directed video below), and Trout Heart Replica, an Amanda confessional, give a stirring string arrangement by Jherek Bischkopf, the wild card in this particular deck. The Bed Song is a showstopper live. David J makes an appearance on Melody Dean, and the finishing one-two punch of Berlin and Olly Olly Oxen Free is staggering.
