TAUK Releases New Album "Homunculus" Today!

The rock/fusion quartet TAUK releases their much-anticipated LP, Homunculus today, April 30. In celebration of the release, both MSN Music and GuitarWorld are streaming the album in full all week. The NYC group joined forces with Grammy-Winning Producer Robert Carranza (Mars Volta, Jack Johnson) to craft their first entirely instrumental full-length album. Purchase "Homunculus" on iTunes Today.

TAUK's unique experimental blend of instrumental funk, jazz, pop, and rock landed the band spots on last summer's biggest festivals such as Bonnaroo, The Hangout Music Festival, Summer Camp Music Festival and The Allman Brother's Peach Fest.and opening gigs for moe., Robert Randolph & the Family Band, Perpetual Groove, O.A.R., 311, Tea Leaf Green and Toubab Krewe. Check out TAUK performing their unique rendition of The Beatles classic "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" for Indaba Music.

TAUK is Matt Jalbert (Guitar), Charlie Dolan (Bass), Alric "A.C." Carter (Keyboard-Organ), and Isaac Teel (Drums). Forming in middle school, a majority of TAUK's members have been playing together for over a decade. The group experimented with their sound throughout the years both individually while studying at top music universities and conservatories, and together as a band - always working to find their ideal sound. It wasn't until 2012 with the addition of drummer, Isaac Teel, and the realization the band could build a fan base around a completely instrumental act, that the pieces fell into place for Homunculus. Jalbert explains, "This band has been through a lot, but we hit a point last year where it just felt like things were coming together the way they were supposed to. We really wanted this new album to be a statement as to what TAUK is all about."

With the new album's psychedelic title, Homunculus, TAUK aims to leave the interpretation of both the title and the music up to the listener. "Being an instrumental band leaves a lot of our music up to being interpreted in different ways," explains Jalbert.

TAUK manages to create a live show experience to match their masterfully produced recordings.  The unique chemistry and relaxed-focus of Tauk's performance is undeniable, but their ability to create immensely melodic and emotional music without a vocal lead is what continues to captivate and impress music lovers across all genres. The future is continuing to look bright for this talented and ambitious quartet.

TAUK has released Homunculus today, April 30, 2013. Please head to www.taukband.com for more updates.
