Crystal Fairy announced today their first series of shows on the west coast to coincide with the release of their debut album on February 24th via Ipecac. The album is now up for pre-order on Ipecac's webstore in both CD/LP formats including a limited pink vinyl variant, as well as bundle options with a Crystal Fairy t-shirt. Additionally they also debuted Chiseler, a new song from the forthcoming album yesterday on Pitchfork.
Crystal Fairy is made up of Buzz and Dale from Melvins, Teri from Le Butcherettes and Omar from At The Drive In/Mars Volta.
Teri had this to say about Chiseler: "It was so much fun to write this song with Buzz, Omar and Dale. It literally just came out like a flying saucer while we were working the parts out for Chiseler. That same day we recorded everything. It was so impressive to see how well we all experiment with one another. While writing the lyrics for this one, I completely let my hand do the story telling... the unconscious is sometimes wiser than our premeditated thoughts."
