Dead Man's Bones

In what has to be one of the coolest sounding musical projects ever (or at the very least, for an actor turned musician), Ryan Gosling and Zach Shields will be releasing the self-titled debut album for their group Dead Man's Bones October 6th. Featuring Gosling, Shields, and the Silverlake Conservatory Children's Choir, little is really known about the album besides the fact it will have a flair for the baroque and noir and that it will be very stripped down.

To promote this album, the duo will be going on a 12 city tour and I have to admit, this sounds like the type of event that would actually be worthy of flying down from Alaska to experience (thank god for Seattle and Portland dates). Gosling and Shields have arranged it so there will be a local talent show opening for each event, handpicked by them and more than likely arranged to mesh well with their event. Also, given that it's the duo with a children's choir (who are notoriously difficult to bring on the road), they will be getting the assistance from specific choirs from each city they visit. Rad.

Check Pitchfork for tour dates and more info, including a link to a great interview with the titual duo. Also, watch the promotional video below. Creepy and awesome, all at the same time.
