Detroit House Guests – The New Album

With Collaborations From Douglas JMcCarthy, Michael Gira & More – Out 17 March 2017

North American Tour Dates Announced

ADULT. (Detroit’s Nicola Kuperus and Adam Lee Miller) have released a new track from their collaborative album, Detroit House Guests released on Mute on double vinyl, download and CD on 17 March 2017.

Listen to We Chase The Sound featuring Shannon Funchess, of Light Asylum, right here: https://youtu.be/YtMzn6ljWIU

ADULT. have announced North American tour dates through May and June and an album launch show in Miami, FL, on Friday 17 March (details below). Further dates across the US, UK and Europe will be announced in the coming weeks.

The band recently unveiled the video for They’re Just Words featuring Nitzer Ebb’s Douglas J McCarthy. Watch the video – directed by Hazel Hill McCarthy III, edited by N Kuperus with a cameo from dancer Biba Bell – here: https://youtu.be/2iJUThh_nbQ

Detroit House Guests is a collaborative project conceived by ADULT. Based on the visual artist residency model, each musician came to ADULT.’s studio for a three week period with the parameter that they all live, work and collaborate together. The result – a total anthropological sound experiment and a full length album.

The album features collaborations with a whole host of musicians and artists – Douglas J McCarthy from Nitzer Ebb, Michael Gira from Swans, Shannon Funchess from Light Asylum, Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe aka Lichens, Austrian thereminist Dorit Chrysler and multidisciplinary artist Lun*na Menoh.

ADULT. are the Detroit duo Nicola Kuperus and Adam Lee Miller. They played their first live show together in Germany in 1997 under the name Artificial Material. In early ’98 they released their first 12″ under the moniker Plasma Co. Later that year, they released their first 12″ under the name ADULT. Currently, they have released six albums and 19 EPs or singles on Ghostly International, Thrill Jockey and Clone Records, as well as on their own label Ersatz Audio, (which currently has over 40 releases since it was founded in ’95). They have remixed over 20 acts as well, including Tuxedomoon, John Foxx, Death in Vegas and Pet Shop Boys (for Moog Music).

Kuperus and Miller also make sculpture, paintings, films, photographs, performances, videos and installations. They strive to intersect the lines between art and audio and have exhibited their work at institutions such as the Austrian Cultural Forum (NY), Mattress Factory (Pittsburgh), Detroit Institute of Arts (Detroit), MOMAS (Saitama, Japan), and Centre d’art contemporain de Meymac (FR). They have shown their film The Three Grace(s) triptych at spaces such as Anthology Film Archives (NY), Distrital Film Festival (Mexico City), and Grey Area for Art and Technology (SF).
