“TAUK’s instrumental music melds genres and styles, creating a hard-charging, often melodic fusion that, thanks to a penchant for improv — offers limitless possibilities”
— The Washington Post

New York, NY (July 24, 2017) – TAUK are bringing their all-instrumental blend of funk, hip-hop, progressive rock, and jazz around the U.S. with this fall’s Montage tour. Fans will be able to pick up tickets this Wednesday via the band’s fan ticketing here: taukband.com/shows/
Fans who purchase tickets through the band’s ticketing service will have the option of adding on a limited edition tour poster and pin bundle that will not be available anywhere else.
Tickets to all shows will be available to the general public on Friday at 10 AM local time.

TAUK will be performing songs from their entire catalog including last fall’s Sir Nebula, Collisions, Pull Factors, and fan favorite Homunculus that is available starting September 1th on vinyl exclusively at the TAUK merch booth. The newly pressed vinyl version of Homunculus features the original album mastered for vinyl and 3 bonus tracks from the recent Sir Nebula album sessions.

The band has been making multi-track mixes of select shows available for sale via Nugs.net, and starting today, all of those shows will be available to stream via the Nugs.net streaming app, which can be downloaded here. The app gives fans access to over 10,000 shows from bands in the extended jam scene.

Plans are underway for a large New Year’s Eve celebration, the details of which will be announced soon. Keeping in the holiday spirit TAUK’s show on 11/24 at New York City’s Bowery Ballroom will be performed under the banner of TAUKsgiving, with special guests to be announced.

On their third studio album Sir Nebula, TAUK tap into their singular chemistry to elevate and expand their all-instrumental blend of funk, hip-hop, progressive rock, and jazz. Revealing both their refined musicality and unbridled creativity, the Oyster Bay, New York-bred rock-fusion four-piece (guitarist Matt Jalbert, bassist Charlie Dolan, keyboardist/organist Alric “A.C.” Carter, and drummer Isaac Teel) push into new sonic terrain and build entire worlds within each richly textured soundscape.

From the hazy atmospherics of “Time’s Up” and soaring riffs of “Program Select” to the urgent rhythms of “Shenanigans” and sprawling melodies of “Where You Are,” Sir Nebula finds TAUK introducing a cosmically inspired element to their music. “The album ended up taking on a more ambient kind of vibe than anything we’ve done before—there’s a spaciness in the songs that lets you get lost in the sound,” says Dolan. And while the album is endlessly hypnotic, TAUK also deliver the dynamic tension-and-release jams that have helped earn them a devoted following while drawing critical acclaim (the Washington Post, for one, praised TAUK for “creating a hard-charging, often melodic fusion that—thanks to a penchant for improv—offers limitless possibilities”).

As with their past four releases, TAUK created Sir Nebula in collaboration with Grammy Award-winning producer/mixer/engineer Robert Carranza (The Mars Volta, Ozomatli, Jack Johnson, Taj Mahal). But in a departure from their previous work, the band made the album in one concentrated period rather than spacing the recording sessions out in between tours. Holing up at the Solar Powered Plastic Plant in Los Angeles, often pulling 12-hour workdays,TAUK ultimately found the revamped recording process hugely beneficial. “Everything just happened so naturally this time around,” says Jalbert. “I can’t think of one moment where it felt like anything was forced. We were all just completely focused and in the same mindset, which made it this incredibly fun and smooth experience.”
