"Bon Iver, Bon Iver."

As of late, Bon Iver head honcho Justin Vernon's recreational activities include breakfast(s) and basketball alongside Kanye, "rolling a spliff with Rick Ross," studio sing-a-longs with John Legend, laying down a record as part of Ryan Olson's 25-deep "Soft [Indie] Rock" collective - GAYNGS,and hanging out in Hawaii (808) with the likes of Nicki Minaj, A-Trak, and Jeff Bhasker. The most physical result of these escapades includes noticeable vocal work on "Lost In the World" and "MONSTER," amongst several others (My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy).
Between projects/funtimes, Vernon has slowly chipped away at new Bon Iver material, recording at a converted Wisconsin vet clinic (indoor pool) over the course of the past 3 odd years. The self-titled 10-track set is slated TBR June 21st on Jagjaguwar and is the group's first release since 2009's Blood Bank EP. Surf on over to the label's site for a few additional Bon Iver-related treats: The Gregory Euclide album art, a [newly re-tooled] Michael Perry "Band Bio," the LP track sequencing, etc.

  1. Vampires is not at all like in the movies or books. Sure, I understand. You are young you have the whole world open to you. You can be anything that you choose if you apply yourself and try hard to work toward that goal. But being a Vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, But how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity? contact the Vampires Lord on his Email:
