The Motet On Tour This Summer In Support of Their New AlbumProgressive funk collective The Motet is on tour this summer in support of their brand new album. Hailed as "ambitious, airtight and built to travel" (Boulder Weekly), the band's self-titled 7th release indeed finds The Motet bold and road ready. With recent sellout shows headlining Brooklyn Bowl, Denver's Fillmore Auditorium, Atlanta's Terminal West, Boston's Brighton Music Hall and others, The Motet prepares to crisscross the country throughout the summer - with festival stops including Summer Camp, North Coast Music Festival, Euphoria Camping & Music Festival, a hometown Red Rocks play, and more. The Motet's complete list of currently confirmed shows is included below.

The nine tracks on The Motet (released February 2014) seamlessly showcase an evolved, keenly refined musical vision of The Motet; a band committed to pushing the sonic envelope, while remaining dedicated to the musical traditions - funk, afrobeat, disco, jazz, and soul - that have long defined their sound. The Motet are well known in Colorado and beyond for keeping audiences in a dancing frenzy by layering precise and vibrant live instrumentation and electronic rhythms into a style that is uniquely their own. And in this age when EDM reigns over the dance music scene, The Motet is proof that funk is not even close to dead. For this studio recording, each member of the band contributed to the writing and arranging of the album's nine original songs. Using traditional analog recording methods including tape, tubes and transistors, the music on The Motet offers all the crunch and bite of a classic 70's funk record and is warm, rich, and organic in tone. But the music is fresh and forward - as much a glimpse into the future of funk music as it is homage to the past.
