Columbia Records is set to release Suspicious Activity?, a genre-smashing new collection of original music from The Bad Plus, on Tuesday, September 20.
Suspicious Activity? is the first new Bad Plus studio album since the critically-acclaimed Give (released March 2004) and the first new Bad Plus release since the group’s internet-only eight-song concert collection Blunt Object Live In Tokyo (released March 2005). (The Bad Plus may also be heard performing its original composition, “Big Eater,” on the compilation album, Bonnaroo Music Festival 2004 [Live].)
In celebration of the release of Suspicious Activity?, the Bad Plus will return to New York City to perform an historic six night run at the fabled Village Vanguard from September 20 – September 25.
Tracks on Suspicious Activity? include ten new tracks including original compositions by each of the group’s members as well as a radical and mind-blowing take on the triumphal “(Theme from) Chariots Of Fire.”
