The Disco Biscuits to Release ‘The Classical Set’

The Disco Biscuits are easily classified in the genre of EDM or Livetronica, but their classical roots are apparent in their extensive compositions such as “House Dog Party Favor” and “Hot Air Balloon”, and form the backbone of the band’s sound. On August 16, 2003 at TranceMission festival in Trade, TN, The Disco Biscuits played a set composed solely of famous classical pieces of music and some original Biscuits songs.  Now, for the first time, a remastered show is available for download and vinyl.

Keyboardist Aron Magner recalls “I vividly recall the band tearing through the sheet music of the conductor’s score and crafting our own unique four piece orchestration that still stayed true to the written music. Though we have played some of these songs very rarely over the years, this is the only time we have performed them as one complete set, and that fluidity made it an instant fan favorite since the day it was first performed.”

Mastered by Jon Altschiller (Wind at Four to Fly, Rocket 3, TransFusion Radio), and engineered for vinyl by Scott Hull, the vinyl edition is pressed to high quality, virgin 180g vinyl by RTI, Americas finest vinyl production facility pressing plant.

A limited edition, four sided official release is set for November 28, and pre-orders are being accepted now that ship in mid-November. Included in the release is original artwork by Gwen AP, liner notes by Jon Lesser, a special bonus track on side 4, a download card redeemable for a free digital version of the album, and, for those who purchase via the pre-order before the end of October, a bonus item from our merch store.
