It’s been a big year for Brooklyn-based funk-rock act. Last month, the band announced that they would be ditching the iconic color scheme that has defined their image for five years and left vibrant memories of their concerts in the minds of attendees. This “visual palate cleanser” is meant to help usher in “a new era” of Turkuaz, according to frontman Dave Brandwein, as the band dons outfits of black, white, grey and tan, in addition to the new material being showcased on the tour from their latest EP, Kuadrochrome.
“The band is more collaborative than ever before and seeks to unite our energy in a different way,” Brandwein said with regard to the new Turkuaz Kuadrochrome aesthetic. “The four tone scheme with chrome accents sets the mood for an era harkening back to the funk and soul that the band’s music was born out of.” Ahead of the announcement of the new Kuadrochrome era, Turkauz tied a bow on the “colors” era with their recently-premiered concert film, None’s A Ton.
The band will also embark on a new musical venture this summer, as they team up with former Talking Heads members Adrian Belew and Jerry Harrison to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the band’s iconic album, Remain In Light. The group, with these additions, will be playing select dates at festivals this summer including Floydfest, Electric Forest, and The Peach Music Festival. However, Harrison stated that “information about other festival dates” is coming soon.
