Zola Jesus String Quartet Autumn 2013 Tour Confirmed With Jg Thirlwell

On the heels of her Conatus world tour, Nika Roza Danilova was offered an opportunity to perform at one of the most prestigious modern art museums in the world, NY's Guggenheim. Rather than doing her standard Zola Jesus electronic set she decided she wanted to work with a classical composer who could arrange her songs for a quartet. She recruited legendary pioneer JG Thirlwell (Foetus).
Following Sacred Bones' LP release of the studio recordings of these arrangements, 'Versions' (outAugust 19th), Zola Jesus will bring the live show to Europe for a string of special one off concerts.
October 3rd London Tabernacle
October 4th Paris Caf' de la Danse
October 5th Berlin Hau1
New live footage of the infamous Guggenheim show has also just been revealed filmed and edited by Pitchfork TV, filmed by Mark Zemel and produced by RJ Bentley.
Since his involvement in the early 80's New York no-wave scene, JG has been scoring and composing symphonic arrangements for his own project Manorexia, in addition to currently scoring Adult Swim's Venture Brothers series. Thirlwell's oeuvre runs the gamut from orchestrations, big band, and cathartic noise-rock to abstract electronics, sound sculpture, and chamber music, thus making him the perfect collaborator to help realize Danilova's vision.

Versions Track List:
01. Avalanche (Slow)
02. Fall Back
03. Hikikomori
04. Run Me Out
05. Seekir
06. Sea Talk
07. Night
