DVAS “SOCIETY” OUT JULY 27th

Dietzche V. and the Abominable Snowman’s French touch will take you on a dangerous and sexy journey of disco, funk, and soul with their bounce-heavy set of emotional and summer-y anthems. DVAS have quickly garnered the attention of electro dance devotees across the globe with Internet mixtapes, remixes, and tastemaker compilation placements. They may share some attributes with the space sounds of Daft Punk and pop legacy of Hall And Oates, but DVAS bring intense originality and innovation to up the ante on dance floor pop jams.

The Anthem-in-waiting “Society” is the first single from the DVAS full-length album of the same name, and as a wondrous bonus treat – The Hood Internet partners with Chicago party-rapper Kid Static to throw down for their super-fly take on the DVAS single. The Society video, created by Toronto stars on the rise Shark Teeth Films debuted worldwide exclusively at Spinner.com June 11–17. The video has already been added to rotation at AUX?TV, MuchMoreMusic & MuchMusic’s The Wedge.

The album “SOCIETY” hits stores July 27 and will be the soundtrack of summer, with that chunky slice of emphatic energy-induced music we oh-so-crave; tracks like Ambient Room, Consenting Adults, Watching You, Questions, and Giving It All Away are sure to leave you hot under the collar and make you wish that this year’s summer fling never ends. The Society release is courtesy of Upper Class Recordings, the Toronto?based label responsible for bringing you influential and notable artists The Russian Futurists,Cadence Weapon, Girlsareshort (MSTRKRFT Al?P’s project) and The Cansecos.

The Five Ghosts, the new album from celebrated indie rock band STARS, debuted at #62 on the Billboard chart today, marking the first time the Canadian band has entered the chart’s Top 100 in the United States.

STARS recently announced a month-long run of headlining tour dates in support of The Five Ghosts, beginning September 22nd in Rochester, NY. In addition to the tour, the band will appear at Lollapalooza in Chicago in August as well as several major Canadian music festivals. Full tour dates below.

The new album, which was released June 22nd on Vagrant Records in the US, has already been lauded by SPIN for its “flowing, synth-backed melodies” and NYLON which called it “a solid release with serious mixtape potential.” THE NEW YORK TIMES said that “The music brims with optimism, full of major chords, sparkling synthetic sounds and tireless electronic beats” while FILTER congratulated its “perfectly placed synthesizers” and “haunting vocals,” going on to say that The Five Ghosts “packs the same profundity, rhapsodic charm and orchestration of previous records, but Stars takes it one step further, intensifying their indie-pop wizardry.”
