Tomorrowworld Artist Bassnectar Releases New Album Titled Noise vs. Beauty

Ahead of his performance at the Tomorrowworld music festival, this September, Bassnectar (AKA Lorin Ashton) released his milestone tenth album --Noise Vs. Beauty-- today.

The 15-track album is out through Bassnectar's own imprint, Amorphous Music, and available to purchase in digital, CD and vinyl formats from www.bassnectar.net



Dubbed the most inventive electronic artist since Aphex Twin by NPR, Bassnectar criss-crossed the world selling out huge venues and donating hundred of thousands of dollars with his Dollar Per Basshead Program, but took an extended break to complete the album.

"I took an unprecedented 6 months off the road --the first time since I started touring in the late 90s-- and dove deep into the creative process," Bassnectar said. "I unplugged from social networking and didn't listen to any music. I just created. For the first time I feel completely content with what I have created, and authentically detached from the preferences of others. I made the music I wanted to make and I love it."

The 15-track album features e=singles "You & Me", "Now" and "Hold On."

"Each of the 15 songs represents a specific point along that spectrum with some songs that sound like pure freakout-noise, some that sound beautiful and touching, and some that are combinations," he adds.

Before taking the decks at Tomorrowworld in Chattahoochee Hills, Bassnectar will head to Europe for a slew of high-profile festival and club dates across the continent, including a performance at the Tomorrowland festival in Belgium. Tomorrowworld will be Bassnectar's last festival before embarking on his recently announced 18-city NVSB Album Tour.
