Prince Rama Signs To Paw Tracks; Preps Album

Brooklyn-based three-piece Prince Rama is the latest signing to Animal Collective's Paw Tracks label. The group's members, who allegedly were raised on a Hare Krishna commune in Florida and subsequently educated at art school in Boston, will release their debut full-length album, Shadow Temple, on September 14 via their new label.





The eight-track release was recorded in Kurt Vonnegut's grandson's cabin and in a 135-year-old haunted church, with assistance from Animal Collective's Avey Tare and Deakin. The group presumably derives its name from Rama, a Hindu deity, and Shadow Temple stays true to that source of inspiration, featuring sounds shrouded in incense smoke and DIY psychedelia. 

Prince Rama is set to play select live dates in anticipation of its full-length's release. The six announced dates include two shows in Brooklyn, two in Manhattan and stops in Illinois and Baltimore. The shows kick off next Saturday.
