TAUK recently released the Shapeshifter I: Construct EP and have been on tour all month in support of the release. Today the expansive instrumental quartet releases a live video of "Malware", recorded by Tim McG Photo at The Fineline in Minneapolis at the top of the run.
"The Naughty Horns laid down some amazing parts on Shapeshifter I: Construct, so we knew we had to try them out live," says the band. "Check out this killer version of ‘Malware' from Minneapolis featuring PHO band members Lukas Skrove on trumpet and Aaron Levin on sax! If you wanna see us with horns and other special guests again, we're excited that we'll be joined by some incredible players before tour is over. Enjoy this video for now and we'll see you all out there."
On the Shapeshifter I: Construct EP, TAUK tap into their singular chemistry to elevate and expand their all-instrumental blend of funk, hip-hop, progressive rock, and jazz and offer a hint of what is to come from a full length album this fall.
Guitarist Matt Jalbert, bassist Charlie Dolan, keyboardist Alric “A.C.” Carter and drummer Isaac Teel continue their tour tomorrow in Greensboro, NC and will run up the East Coast, stopping in NYC for two nights at Brooklyn Bowl. Mike “Maz” Maher and Chris Bullock (Snarky Horns) and Nate Werth (Snarky Puppy/Ghost-Note) will join the band as special guests for night two on May 19. The tour then continues with stops at Boston Calling, Summer Camp, Mad Tea Party Jam, Camp Bisco and Resonance with more to be added. A complete list of tour dates can be found below.
