Conspirator to tour with exciting full-band, all-star lineup

PHILADELPHIA, PA – Conspirator, the duo of Disco Biscuits’ staples Marc Brownstein and Aron Magner which often feature guest musicians in the live setting, has announced a series of “full band” performances featuring Chris Michetti and a rotating cast of first-class drummers, a concept that is both new and refreshing for the band and fans, alike.


While Brownstein and Magner have occasionally invited other musicians to their live shows, the “new Conspirator” promises to be a never-before-experienced, “full band” sound that will emerge not only from the group’s mentality, but by featuring a solidified, returning, 4-piece lineup.


Live music fans have come to embrace Conspirator for their signature high energy, electronic-based sets and their legendary album, The Key, which has been a staple of the band’s live repertoire for years. Now, with a firmly set 4-piece band, fans can expect performances featuring increased live improv and a refreshing musical flow, peppered with some surprises. Inspired by new collaborations and the combined musical histories of the performers, Conspirator is set to get the scene talking in 2011.


“Our different combinations have been practicing for these shows, and we have already performed a couple with Michetti. Getting a taste of the ‘new Conspirator’ was refreshing and exciting,” said Brownstein. “Being in the midst of the band’s vibe has really got me ready to hit the road with these guys. I’m just as pumped up as anyone else in the room when I’m on stage. There are really exciting places a full band, this full band, can take the classic Conspirator sound. It’s a whole new show each night.”


Known throughout the live music world for high energy, creative guitar shredding with his band RAQ, Chris Michetti became much more familiar to Disco Biscuits fans throughout 2009 when he periodically accompanied the band on stage at places like Red Rocks, Camp Bisco, and on a number of Spring Tour performances. Michetti has recently lent his signature handiwork to Conspirator during performances earlier this December, and anyone who caught the early phases of the “new Conspirator” will undeniably be psyched for round two and beyond.


Termed the “pre-destined, great modern drummer” by DRUMMERWORLD, Berklee-trained Adam Deitch has recently made waves with his project Break Science. Deitch is perhaps best known for his eclectic collaborations, New York City residencies, and sit-ins that have seen him partner with the likes of John Scofield, Soulive, Jurassic 5, Mos Def, and Erika Badu. Deitch is currently confirmed to join Conspirator through mid-December.


Lane Shaw exploded onto the live music scene as one-third of the Pnuma Trio. Shaw has recently, and notably, collaborated with the likes of N*E*R*D, Diplo, and DJ Benzi with his latest musical project, Mansions on the Moon. Shaw was once asked to take a crack at an autobiography, and simply listed “drums, boats, and Steely Dan.” He will perform with Conspirator throughout the Northeast in early January.
