This is totally original, totally bizarre, and totally fucking rad. - Alternative Press Magazine
Pegasuses-XL truly represent a cornucopia of musical influences. The band's music is sometimes based in synthetic electro-punk, sometimes based in frantic post-punk, and most of the times just plain weird. - Pastepunk.com
Since we last heard from them, Athens' tweaked out synth-punks Pegasuses-XL have been busy gearing up for a fun-filled 2009 and are coming through your town on a mind-blowing US tour to remind us of their almighty ambitions.
The band's tour begins next week and sees them traveling the US w/ We Versus The Shark, playing alongside acts including Pattern Is Movement, Monotonix and So Many Dynamos, and hitting up both CMJ in NY and The Fest in Gainesville, FL! Check below for all tourdates.
On this tour PXL will have the first copies of "Electro Agitators," a 17 track collection of all the tracks on their first 3 EP's, remixed and mastered, as well as a brand new bonus track. "Official" release date may be a little further down the line, but we will have copies of this for everyone as soon as they arrive.
And don't think our favorite tweaked out coffee chugging synth monsters are just sitting back and resting before tour... Nope! - They are instead putting the finishing touches on yet ANOTHER brand new album to be released in early 2009. The current working team of Joel Hatstat (ex-Cinemechanica) Jeff Tobias (We Versus The Shark, Dark Meat) and Jeff Rosenstock (Bomb The Music Industry!) have churned out a record that is both oddly mature and weirder that we could have ever imagined (in the best way possible - and featuring tons of grand piano!). As soon as they get back from tour and finish up the mixes we'll start slipping some tracks out into an unsuspecting world.
