Disasteradio Announces 'Sweatshop' Album Release Tour

Disasteradio Announces 'Sweatshop' Album Release Tour

Friday 18th August, 2017 10:26AM

Luke Rowell aka Disasteradio will be bringing the boogie to a bunch of towns around the country over late August and early September in celebration of the release of brand new album Sweatshop. The excellent 11-track offering is the long, long awaited follow up to Disasteradio's 2010 record Charisma, and it's definitely been worth the wait. Speaking to the record's creation, Rowell (who also makes music under the name Eyeliner) told UTR back in June:

"In terms of an album, the music kinda traces this arc of me going from a new wave to a bit more symphonic kinda Electric Light Orchestra territory. I got into the ELO record 'TIME' (1981) after 'Charisma 'and that sort of thing (lately Tom Petty / Thin Lizzy type vibes) is showing through on a few songs."

"I spent five years writing the songs in my bedroom/studio and finished them in a garage studio... process-wise is kinda an exploration in the idea of living in your work."

"I was working on this all through making the first three Eyeliner albums so there has been a bit of technical and conceptual cross-pollination between those two projects. Disasteradio has inherited a bit more complex harmony from Eyeliner, really funny to watch that kinda happen on its own."
