L.A.’s Dengue Fever Announce New Album, “Cannibal Courtship,” Plus Share Debut Single; FREE Download!
Dengue Fever, the L.A.-based sextet who specialize in an exotic blend of Cambodian rock, Afro grooves, and surf and garage psychedelia, step back into the spotlight with the release of their fourth studio album, Cannibal Courtship, in April.
The record, Dengue Fever’s follow up to 2008’s Venus on Earth, serves up 11 new tracks and features lead vocalist, Chhom Nimol, singing in both English and Khmer (Cambodian). Guest vocalists, The Living Sisters, lend beautiful backing harmonies to many of the tracks. “Before it was partly Cambodian and partly indie rock,” explains Dengue Fever bassist Senon Gaius Williams of the band’s evolution. “Now it’s 100 percent both.”
The cross-cultural collective sets out on a U.S. tour in support of Cannibal Courtship this Spring, beginning with a record release show at The Troubadour in Los Angeles. Check out tour dates, plus stream / download Dengue Fever’s new single, “Cement Slippers,” below.
