Venetian Snares Announces New LP for Planet Mu, Readies North American Tour

Veteran producer Aaron Funk's Venetian Snares alias has been off the radar for over two years now, since he delivered 2012's Fool the Detector EP and the self-released Affectionate earlier that year. Even his various monikers, such as the acid-focused Last Step, have remained quiet. Thankfully, the Canadian experimentalist has now announced his return, unveiling the details of a brand-new album called My Love Is a Bulldozer. The 12-track LP is Funk's first full-length since 2010's My So-Called Life, and is said to "[mesh] together sometimes thunderous-yet-complex drum programming with delicate musical structures, creating, in places, a sense of haunted, atmospheric jazziness, as well as spiky autumnal strings recalling the gothic orchestral beauty of his previous work." Essentially, My Love Is a Bulldozer seems primed to offer a fiery document of Venetian Snare's many permutations all at once, albeit with a larger vocal component than ever before.

In addition to his forthcoming album, Funk has a North American tour planned for this summer, which will see him traversing the West Coast, with quick jaunts through Chicago, Philadelphia, and New York. Those dates can be perused below, where the artwork and tracklist for Venetian Snares' My Love Is a Bulldozer LP is also available before it drops on June 18 via Planet Mu.
