Additional Info:
The Ford Theatre Reunion is coming to Portland, Oregon as part of their Summer 2017 "We Have Only Left Earth" album release tour. The neo-carnival rock n' roll group, based out of Lexington, KY produce a sound that harkens back to a by-gone era of gypsy caravans and rail-riding hobos. This, married with blistering progressive rock technicality and heavy punk, is all brought together under multiple vocalists that are a study of compliment and contrast. It all manifests as an auditory spectacle that is both well-timed and well-executed. The result is compellingly jarring, featuring narrative lyrics and theatrically-matched music all wrapped up in a deliriously raucous stage show. FTR feverishly pulls you to your feet and drives you to dance, thrash, and shout - all in all, undoubtedly one of the most bizarre and fascinating acts likely to be seen in Portland.The band's new album, "We Have Only Left Earth" (CDs and Downloads available June 9 at is much more than a continuation of FTRs previous releases; it is a total reimagining. Now in their ninth year of performing and recording, the sound has matured and developed into something darker and at the same time poppier and more lyrically driven. The record's complex themes of sin and space, hell and the void, give the diverse album a sense of continuity. All the anxiety, fear, heartache, and rapture are woven seamlessly into the complex, yet undeniably catchy, fabric of the music. It is a strange and beautiful ride that will leave you looking at the stars and wondering what have we become? Ford Theatre Reunion will be performing at Dante's at 350 SW Burnside, Portland.
