Ben Bromley and Ross Simonini, splitting their time between Brooklyn and San Fransicso, lead the project and weave mythology throughout their music and art.
Functioning as an artist collective, NewVillager brings multiple dimensions to their sound with visual direction from Ben Dickinson (LCD Soundsystem, the Rapture, Q-tip, etc), live drums and video by Collin Palmer and a cast of characters reminiscient of a Wonderland-esque board game come to life.
To coincide with the album release, there are plans for art shows and installations across the U.S as well as live tour and a book release to follow. The album will be availble digitally and in retail stores around the world this summer 2011.
Their official self-titled debut coming June 21 on IAMSOUND
