    Anybody see Pitchfork tweet this yesterday?

    The Avalanches' website says "Stay tuned in the coming months for special announcements" http://www.theavalanches.com/

    ok yeah, didn't think so.....looks like they haven't been in the states even since '00 or '01 "Since I Left You" tour, makes sense considering they haven't recorded any other studio albums.......just to see these guys do their thing would be a spectacle in itself

    Avalanches album finished
    27 May 2011

    Modular founder and curator of this year's VIVID Live programme, Steven 'Pav' Pavlovic, has told TMN that the long-awaited second album from The Avalanches is finished... almost.

    Pavlovic was characteristically forthright when asked about the record, stating that the only thing remaining is "some tweaking to the production elements" and that a lead track from the album will, most likely, be heard this year, with the album itself out early next year.

    Since the November 2000 release of The Avalanches debut album Since I Left You, speculation has been rife over when, or if, a follow up record will see the light of day. The debut was a worldwide success, with universal critical acclaim and UK sales of over 200,000 units. Indie barometer Pitchfork ranked the record #10 in its albums of the decade.

    The full interview - including plenty of candid talk about booking The Cure, dealing with Odd Future and exciting news about Ladyhawke's next album - will be in Monday's issue of The Music Network (#838), but until then, whet your appetite with this quote.

    "They’re finished, and they’re celebrating. And they’re going to have a little party to celebrate finishing it. The next stage will see the album go to someone to mix."

    Issue 838 is out May 30. The full interview with Pav will be in our newsletter on Monday.

    VIVID Live starts today.

    I'm really just curious.

    With the finishing touches supposedly being made to their upcoming album, I haven't seen or heard any sort of tour information from them. They're not slated for any upcoming festivals, (as of right now), club gigs, ANYTHING..
    My original post to start this thread back in Feb of 2008.

    Fuckin A, Avalanches..

    So, the Avalanches have had some DJ sets recently and have some slated, yes? They were also featured on a Radio Soulwax show http://www.abc.net.au/triplej/events...etter%20%23129.

    It appears they are indeed FINALLY coming out of hiding. Here's hoping they get booked for Coachella 2012.

    Here's a video from their show last week:



    The show reviews were pretty mixed (mostly leaning towards the negative).

    If they come to Coachella, it'll be the biggest fucking letdown since their hiatus has caused expectations to be astronomical. They really aren't that great anymore "live". Plus with Dexter now unassociated with them, I could give two shits about the Avs.

    You have a good point. I'll wait to here the new album to make any judgements, but I'm sure you're probably right in that it will be a huge letdown.
