Broken Bells – KXCI Presents!
Broken Bells is a musical partnership of producer Danger Mouse and James Mercer of The Shins. These indie rock titans make a rare concert appearance, touring behind their new album, After The Disco. The Rialto Theatre doors open at 7pm with Au Revoir Simone.
Broken Bells, the musical partnership comprised of Brian Burton (Danger Mouse) and James Mercer (The Shins), are proud to announce the release of their sophomore album, After the Disco, in early 2014 on Columbia Records.
After the Disco follows up the 2010 self-titled debut which is on the brink of RIAA Gold certification after notching a release week Billboard Top 10 slot. Burton and Mercer’s illustrious first effort was nominated for a Grammy award and ultimately helped solidify Burton’s most recent Producer of the Year win, one of his 17 nominations and five Grammy victories in seven years.
Fate would strike when Burton, a long-time admirer of The Shins, met Mercer backstage when the two happened to be performing at the same music festival. From then on, there was no looking back. The creative cogs had already begun grinding away.
While Burton has had his pick of collaborators in musical forays, he has found his ultimate writing partner in James Mercer. Mercer has helped unlock a new musical world for both himself and Burton as Broken Bells. The result has been the creation of cosmic and forceful music from a duo with mutual respect and shared talents. It’s not The Shins. It’s not Danger Mouse. It’s Broken Bells.
