Album Teaser: Mickey Hart Band's SUPERORGANISM
The Mickey Hart Band have released a teaser of their upcoming sophomore album, SUPERORGANISM, due out on August 13th. To hear the teaser, featuring clips from each song on the record, go HERE.
The album cover features an MRI scan of Hart’s brain as well as his brain activity, as captured through an EEG cap. Hart will be performing live with the same EEG cap on his upcoming 70th birthday tour.
“A superorganism is a complex organism composed of many smaller organisms," says Hart as he describes the concept of the album in the liner notes. "A band is a superorganism, so is the universe. For the last few years I have been creating music from the source sounds of the cosmos and now the body. These sounds are noise—harsh, strange—and it is only after dancing with their essence face to face that music can be created."
Fans can pre-order the album now on Hart's website, and download the first two tracks immediately. To pre-order the new album, go to http://www.mickeyhart.net/superorganism.
SUPERORGANISM features lyrics by Robert Hunter, as well as guest appearances by Giovanni Hidalgo and Zakir Hussain.

*Mickey Hart Band only
I would love to see the SUPERORGANISM Tour with the Mickey Hart Band! Too bad they are not going to be on the card in VA at Interlochen that weekend in sept 5-8 with Furthur and Phil & Friends. That would be the cherry on top of what should be an amazing weekend :-)
Mickey, please try to re-schedule some of those CA dates in early Sept...
go see Mickey-I saw him a couple of months ago and had a great time. He did some of the new material coming out on this album. The band was stoked and Mickey was superb. Some HEAVY grooves were created that night.
