Hitman's Heel at the Issue Project Room

Hitman's Heel
Alexander Hacke & Danielle de Picciotto are happy to announce that their first concert in 2011 will be at the legendary Issue Project Room in Brooklyn, NYC presenting their new, upcoming album “HITMAN’S HEEL”

Their new album goes back to the basics. After deciding to give up their house in Berlin 2010 the couple is on the road in search of new horizons. Celebrating this restless nomadic lifestyle they decided to go back to classic songwriting, without sequencing or electronic processing. Concentrating purely on their instruments (guitar, autoharp, keyboards, drums) their songs can be performed on any stage and unplugged. Disregarding fashion, conventions or everyday standards, their lyrics speak of the world they are discovering: “Solitude”, “Magic” and “Freedom”. The brew Ballads, gypsy rolls, Italo Western piano tunes, heavy guitar riffs and Autoharp transports the audience into the world of the uncompromising explorer.

As in their previous projects (“Sanctuary”/”The History of Electricity”/ ”Mountains of Madness” and the “The Ship of Fools”) new visuals by Danielle de Picciotto will accompany their performance, but this show’s spotlight is on the music composed conjointly by the artist couple.

The artist couple are proud to announce that they will be accompanied by Vincent Signorelli (Unsane) on the drums and Algis Kizys (Swans) on bass and have invited Pete Simonelli & Joe Goldring (Enablers) to start off the evening with Simonellis hard-assed yet wonderfully poetic narration pieces.

An evening not to be missed!
