DeVotchKa '100 Lovers' Streaming On NPR, Band Featured In The Wall Street Journal

DEVOTCHKA SET TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM 100 LOVERS MARCH 01
New Record Streaming On NPR/Band Featured in The Wall Street Journal
Confirmed for Bonnaroo 2011


Denver based romantic rock band DeVotchKa is slated to release their spirited new record 100 Lovers this March 1st via Anti- Records. The Wall Street Journal has weighed in with some advance praise of the album, stating, "The recording bears all the winning traits of the group's best work. Understating its spotless musicianship while still conveying a sense of grandeur-the latter abetted this time by a full orchestra-DeVotchKa's bold new music is achingly romantic at times and yet never without ample wit and energy."

More Early praise for 100 Lovers:

"The new album is the group's best since 2004's "How It Ends" - a melodic stunner that brings together plentiful multi-culti influences." - Denver Post

"Exhilarating" - Relix

"A joyfully inspired album for a band who give pomp a good name" - Uncut

"Regularly swelling with gorgeous string arrangements and Urata's slurring, operatic bellows, 100 Lovers feels like a reverse-engineered soundtrack to a foreign film in dire need of epic landscapes and intimate moments of romance. The sex scene is gonna be intense." - Filter

The group will also be embarking on a North American tour, taking their electrifying and dramatic live show on the road in support of the new album.
