Front man, Kevin Barnes founded the fun-loving band Of Montreal in 1997. The band hails from Athens, Georgia and is currently on tour and hitting up Texas very soon. On Tuesday, December 4th, Of Montreal will be playing at The Mohawk in Austin, Texas. More info can be found at www.ofmontreal.net or http://www.mohawkaustin.com

Artistic expression is exactly what Of Montreal represents. Barnes expresses his mind in entertaining forms from live performances of Barnes wearing a 10ft. dress at Coachella to the experimental well-produced sounds on albums such as Skeletal Lamping.

 Of Montreal’s most recently released album was Paralytic Stalks, marking their 11th studio album. Paralytic Stalks was recorded in Barne’s Sunlandic Studios. This album brings back a dark side of Of Montreal since 2007’s release of Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer?  However, Paralytic Stalks, seems much more of a confessional album compared to the 2007 release. Paralytic Stalks was released on many audio formats from digital to cassettes, and, of course colorful vinyl.

Of Montreal is currently raising funds for a feature-length documentary, “Song Dynasties.” Song  Dynasties will include recent and past video footage and music from the band, including never before released songs. From the looks of the trailer, the band has been through many ups and downs as any other band, but has persisted on. It’s clear that Of Montreal is fun-loving and easily captivates any ear or eye. The documentary is set to release Spring 2013.
