Autre Ne Veut announces October tour in support of new album coming in October... seems almost SUSPICIOUSLY convenient!

A few weeks back, singer and electro-pop dude Arthur Ashin, a.k.a. Autre Ne Veut, SHOCKED AND AWED THE WORLD by announcing the release of his new album, Age of Transparency, which is still comin’ at us HARD on October 2 via Downtown Records.

Sure, everything seemed normal about the announcement at first glance. But I kinda always thought that something was just a bit… ODD about it.

Couldn’t quite put my finger on it.

And it wasn’t just that the record was “self-produced in a small room overlooking a quiet street in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, and mixed by Tony Maserati, who has also worked with Beyoncé, Notorious B.I.G. and Lady Gaga.” Nor was it tied to the fact that you could (and still can) pre-order the album on iTunes and get a handy-dandy free download of the track “World War Pt. 2” (which is also streaming on Spotify, if that’s your bag). No, no, that all seemed pretty on the up-and-up.

No, it was something… else. Something… unsettling.

A-ha! Then it hit me! There was no TOUR in support of the album! What kind of artist releases a new album and shares tracks and embeds videos and takes pre-orders and DOESN’T at least line up a dozen or so dates across the US to drum up some publicity?!

Was this “new Autre Ne Veut album” thing just some cruel hoax? Perpetrated by the Martian race?? Perhaps to distract us while they invaded our planet to steal our water for their dry-as-hell, sorry-ass “CANALS”!?! ALMOST CERTAINLY! I had to warn the president! I had to tell my parents! I… I…

…oh wait.

Never mind. He just announced the tour dates. All good. False alarm, folks.

Still an interesting theory though, no? Not to mention totally sane and logical. Anyway, bye.
