>> Rochester-based musician Seth Faergolzia, one of anti-folk’s most fearless singer-songwriters, will hit the road this February with his latest project, Multibird! The quartet will headline performances in Albany, Buffalo, Winooski, Burlington, Portland, Montréal, Northampton and Boston. Faergolzia kicks off the tour with a live video of “WHENLAND,” from the 2018 Rochester Fringe Festival which can be viewed below!
Since forming in 2011, critics have hailed Multibird's sound as “tender and calm” (New York Press) and “twisted and distorted” (Relix) in equal measure. Where Dufus, Faergolzia's critically-acclaimed avant-rock outfit, shook up New York City in the ‘00s with punk-rock gymnastics and Captain Beefheart-esque abrasion, Multibird creates the communal amiability of a warm gathering around the hearth. A given Multibird show can lead almost anywhere, from raucous foot-stompers to songs soft and careful, all the while anchored by Faergolzia's enigmatic voice and captivating presence. Outré as the four-piece may get, fans of Mumford and Sons will still feel right at home.
The quartet Multibird consists of Faergolzia (acoustic guitar, vox), Shaun Jones (electric guitar, vox, percussion), Emily DiPaola (vox, trumpet, percussion) Luke Cornwell (bass guitar, vox, percussion). Faergolzia has played stages in over 20 countries and has made appearances at the End of the Road Festival UK, Greenman UK, Rockaway Beach Festival UK, Zappanale Germany, Hunsruck Open Air Germany, Burning Woman Germany, One of a Million Festival Switzerland, Out in the Kraut Switzerland, Fringe Festival and many more. In addition, Faergolzia’s projects have played support for such acts as Animal Collective, the Yeahyeahyeahs, Kool Keith, Dan Deacon, Jeffrey Lewis, Moldy Peaches, Langhorn Slim, Frank Turner and countless others.
Tour updates will be announced on the band’s website, along with music videos and excerpts from Faergolzia’s upcoming movie!
