On the heels of releasing its first new studio track in more than 10 years last month, Philadelphia-based live dance titans The Disco Biscuits have unveiled another new song, “Evolve,” which, like its predecessor “Lake Shore Drive,” was produced by fellow scene veteran Cloudchord. As its name suggests, “Evolve” ushers in a new era of sound and style for the Biscuits.
The Disco Biscuits’ shows this Friday and Saturday (April 8-9) at Denver’s Mission Ballroom will serve as launch parties for “Evolve,” which is part of the group’s plan to release a new single every month for the foreseeable future, leading up to the summer arrival of the first new Disco Biscuits album since 2010. This music will be released on the Biscuits’ own label in partnership with The Orchard.
2022 will be a mammoth touring year for the band, with multiple nights at Red Rocks as well as dozens of shows at amphitheaters across America. Also just announced is the 2022 edition of the Biscuits’ long-running City Bisco festival, which will be held June 18-19 at TD Pavilion at the Mann in the group’s Philadelphia hometown. Bob Moses, moe., Shiba San, LP Giobbi, The New Deal, TAUK and Township Rebellion round out the once-in-a-lifetime lineup.
The Disco Biscuits remain pioneers of “trancefusion,” bridging the gap between electronic music and jam psychedelia. Its music belongs as much to marathon dance parties as it does to expansive, live improvisational journeys.
Last year, the group sold out three shows at Red Rocks outside of Denver in a matter of minutes, helping it land on the cover of Pollstar. Always continuing to innovate, the Biscuits played more than a dozen sold-out drive-in shows during the pandemic, and also partnered with Live Nation and the Philadelphia Phillies to raise more than $100,000 for local Black Lives Matter causes through a livestream at Philadelphia’s Citizens Bank Park.
For now, The Disco Biscuits are in the midst of a spring North American tour, with dates running through May 7-8 at New Orleans’ Joy Theater. The band will be headlining a handful of summer festival appearances including Electric Forest in Rothbury, Mich., and the High Sierra Festival in Quincy, Calif.
