Megafauna premiere "Haunted Factory", tour (2014)

Austin trio Megafauna premiered the first song from their forthcoming album Maximalist recently via The track “Haunted Factory” is available to listen/share HERE. (Alternate Soundcloud link HERE.)
Megafauna also play several shows during SXSW this year and will kick off an extensive headlining North America tour in April. See current dates below.
As the title to Austin trio Megafauna’s sophomore album Maximalist might suggest, it’s optimistic, expansive and unabashedly over-the-top; an endeavor to take music to its utmost potential. The band’s supercharged mixture of sounds ranging from prog-rock flash to alt-rock iconoclasm to pithy power-pop and garage rock energy is as infectious as it is inclusive. Megafauna paves their own hook-laden path — much like the Pixies and Queen, who taught the world that even the most unusual pairings of styles can result in unforgettable and eternal classics.
Maximalist was mixed by legendary engineer Tim Palmer (U2, Pearl Jam, David Bowie; recently featured in Tape Op Magazine) and recorded with Dwight Baker (Blue October, Bob Schneider) in Austin. Maximalist will be available on LP, CD and download on April 15 via Danimal Kingdom.
