Dead Man's Bones' self-titled debut album will be in stores October 6th. Zach Shields and Ryan Gosling will then bring their ghastly show on the road, playing select cities in the U.S. and Canada. The album, which was originally the soundtrack to a stage play about ghosts, zombies and werewolves, was completed with the help of a children's chorus. The band (Zach, Ryan, plus three other musicians) will be re-creating the songs with a local choir in every city. The band and choirs will be performing unique versions of their werewolf, zombie, and monster inspired love songs and tales. Reviving a ritual from a bygone era the band is organizing a talent show in each city in place of a traditional opening act (more info on this to be announced this coming week). These shows will be a spectacle of the highest order and will not be something to miss.
