Handsome Furs :: Sound Kapital

New Album Ahead
Tour Kicks off in Hours!!
Someone You Should Know


Alexei Perry and Dan Boeckner...
Handsome Furs: One of our Favorites!


Handsome Furs - What About Us


Sound Kapital (June 28 - Sub Pop) is the first Handsome Furs album written exclusively on keyboards. This was a conscious decision. It forced the fiery Dan Boeckner (who most of you probably know from his guitar shredding with Wolf Parade), to find fresh avenues of expression that coupled well with Dan's music partner and wife Alexei Perry. Even with their new analog synthesizers, Handsome Furs can still fit all their gear into a subcompact car—or the saddlebags of a camel. Alexei and Dan have joked repeatedly about being “closet journalists,” but this is no laughing matter. Being able to work as they travel permits visceral editorializing about their eye-opening adventures. Where those journeys take us next is the new album and a string of tour dates - kicking off today in Boston. And that's right where we are. Welcome to tomorrow:
