The band will perform live and in-person on Friday, Jan. 26, 2024 at The Center Theater at California Center for the Arts in Escondido, California. It will be their first live concert since the start of the pandemic.
Unwoman and Mr. B The Gentleman Rhymer are out with new albums, though in Unwoman’s case it’s a free pre-release version. Also: The Cog is Dead has a new single and Steam Powered Giraffe is crowdfunding a vinyl release of MK III.
Steampunk might be about imaginary worlds and pasts that never were, but sometimes reality intrudes. As Russia continues its invasion of Ukraine, several top musical acts in the steampunk world have taken a stand.
Three of the biggest names in steampunk music are out with new videos. Abney Park’s “Don’t Let Another Captain Captain Your Boat” is the first release from the band’s new album The Sub Aquatic Opera. The band is also planning a streaming concert.
The 25-minute concert was recorded remotely in 2020 and 2021 during the pandemic. It’s available for $5, which also includes MP3 downloads.
Steam Powered Giraffe has a soulful take on the lullaby. Bryan Barbarin handles lead vocals with guest performer Lacey Johnson on piano and backing vocals.
The band has been previewing the album for the past year with singles and music videos. The two-disc package features 12 songs, 10 of which are reprised in acoustic versions.
The band will appear on stage August 3 in La Jolla, California. But even if you can’t make it to the show, you’ll have a chance to watch a high-definition video on their website.
The band is accepting pre-orders for a vinyl LP version of the album, which was originally released in 2012. The package will include two LPs in a gatefold jacket.
Steam Powered Giraffe will debut the live show at the California Center for the Arts Center Theater in Escondido, California. The band promises “new songs, old favorites, and a tantalizing plot” involving a mysterious device.
