Intergalactic stars Drab Majesty have announced a batch of live demonstrations across the globe in celebration of their forthcoming album Modern Mirror.  Their North American run is slotted to run from July 24th through August 30th with Body of Light and Xeno & Oaklander supporting select dates, and their European tour is September 18th through November 2nd featuring SRSQ and Body of Light on various legs — check out all tour dates listed below. 
On their third LP under the Drab Majesty moniker, Deb Demure and Mona D continue to cultivate their hypnotic sound and mystical personas and this rings true on their latest single, “Long Division.”  The song is one of myriad examples ofModern Mirror’s ambition; weaving Deb’s cascading guitar melodies with Mona’s synth-fueled tone questing and No Joy's Jasamine White-Gluz wistfully warning listeners against self-absorption, the single is a showcase of Drab Majesty’s musical and thematic strengths. Drab Majesty’s Deb Demure comments:
“‘Long Division’ points to an elusive impasse one may face in a personal relationship; a fundamental difference whether it be culturally, physically, or emotionally, that reaches a tipping point where both people involved have ultimately lost sight of their own identities through the futile act of trying to accommodate one another. It’s about a crafted dissonance in an attempt to harmonize.”
A journey of self-reflection, nostalgia, love, beauty, and heartbreak told across eight addictive and emotional synth pop anthems, Modern Mirror reinvents classic musical tropes one post-modern tale at a time. Each song tells a piece of the story, in which the listener’s own self-identity has become warped and dissociated through rapidly expanding technology, losing touch with the origins of their own personalities. 
Modern Mirror, due out on July 12 via Dais Records, was recorded after a spat of intense touring alongside The Smashing Pumpkins and Deafheaven, leading Deb and Mona to decamp to the sun-bleached landscapes of Athens, Greece. Employing an a-list of collaborators, the record was produced by Josh Eustis (Telefon Tel Aviv) and mastered by Dave Cooley, with appearances by Jasamine White-Gluz (No Joy) and Justin Meldal-Johnson (NIN, Beck, M83, Air).
Catch Drab Majesty on the road this summer and fall, and stay tuned for more dispatches.
