With only 49 copies to go, you had better hurry. All United States citizens should remember that this is a great way to use your "economic stimulus package" in ways that would make George W. Bush cringe!

...and, the film premier of DECAMPMENT was a major success last Friday, and we couldn't have done it without you Detroit* -THANK YOU!

*By Detroit, we mean the people, not the politicians.

May 6, 2008 DON'T FORGET
ADULT. will be premiering/performing this Friday night at the Detroit Institute of Arts. Come see their new 40 minute experimental-horror film entitled DECAMPMENT while they perform live the all new soundtrack. There are 2 showings, one is at 7:00 and the other is at 8:30. This event is in conjuction with the first new ADULT. release in over a year, and the first new Ersatz Audio release in almost 4 years.

And now for some information about the new release.

The first installment of THE DECAMPMENT TRILOGY is now available for pre-orders. The official release/ship date will be on Tuesday, May 13th. Orders can now be placed through ersatzaudio.com.

THE DECAMPMENT TRILOGY is a very unique release from ADULT. that is rather hard to explain, so please read carefully.

First off, it is a strictly limited 7" series -NOT a CD release- and thus the songs will NOT be released on CD or be available for digital download purchases. Each of the 3 different 7"s will be limited to 100 copies and each one will be hand numbered. One will be released each month starting May 13 (the other release/ship dates being June 13th and finally July 13).

Secondly, each 7" will come with an authentic 16"x20" color photograph signed and numbered by Nicola Kuperus that is limited to 100 as well. Purchasing the entire TRILOGY will create a large work of art intended to be displayed as a Triptych, or each print can be displayed on its own. There are no rules.

And finally, the concept of THE DECAMPMENT TRILOGY.
Through 9 photographs (the 6 photos that make up the front and back of the 3 full color 7" jackets and the 3 large 16"x20" photographs) and the 6 (new) songs, ADULT. tell the "story" of DECAMPMENT through still images, music and lyrics. And what is the DECAMPMENT "story"? It is the new 40 minute experiment-horror film from ADULT. that can only be experienced live (see above*) or through this 7" series.

The 7" series can only be purchased through ersatzaudio.com. This offer will not be available through any store. Each part of the 7" trilogy will be available for $100.00 USD + shipping. Some will think this expensive, but please remember, it is limited to 100 copies each, and each 7" comes with an actual 16"x20" photograph by Nicola Kuperus ready for framing. The entire trilogy can be reserved at this time for $300.00 USD + shipping, but payment must be made up front, with each subsequent release being shipped on it's release date. As quantities are EXTREMELY limited, this release will be handled First Come-First Serve.

In a throw-away world of excess and "shareware", finally something truly unique, hand-crafted and limited.

April 16, 2008 DECAMPMENT
The new project from Detroit's undying isolationists ADULT.

Part I
ADULT. will be premiering their new silent-experimental-
short-horror film DECAMPMENT May 9, 2008 at 7:00pm and 8:30pm at the Detroit Institute of Arts accompanied by their own peculiar electronic horror music especially scored for the film. DECAMPMENT was written, produced and directed by ADULT. in early 2008 and follows a women's transmigration from her "normal" life into a new society of deceit. Filmed entirely in Michigan, DECAMPMENT explores ADULT.'s obsession with an often overlooked and distinctive aesthetic that they call "midwestern horror". The all new soundtrack will be performed live by ADULT. during the screening of the film and will be a mutation of instrumental film music and more ADULT.-like irregularities.

ADULT. will be releasing their first new release in over a year. The DECAMPMENT TRILOGY is an extremely limited 7" series to be released on ERSATZ AUDIO. Three 7"s -each strictly limited to 100 copies- will tell the story of DECAMPMENT through music, lyrics and photographs. Each hand numbered 7" will come in a full color jacket along with a
limited 16" x 20" photographic print from Nicola Kuperus signed and numbered. Collect the entire 7" trilogy to piece together the narrative of DECAMPMENT, plus own the limited edition 7"s and the Kuperus Triptych available ONLY through this website. One 7" will be released each month starting May 13th. More info coming soon concerning this project.

We have the new ADULT. "D.U.M.E." ep available in our MailOrder section now. We will also be announcing European tour dates in about a week for the second half of June. And don't forget our North American shows coming up in a few weeks. Info below.

March 1, 2005

Sorry for the long delay in updates. Things should be updated more frequently now as we have a lot going on this year.

First up, is our new 6 song CD/12" ep entitled 'D.U.M.E." coming out April 12th on the amazing independent Chicago label THRILL JOCKEY. Some sample MP3s are in the RELEASE section now.

Secondly, we will finally be playing some new shows. Here is our Spring schedule. Please note: all shows are with GOLD CHAINS AND SUE CIE (San Francisco) and GENDERS (Detroit).

THU 4/28 NEW YORK, NY Mercury Lounge
FRI 4/29 NEW YORK, NY Mercury Lounge
SAT 4/30 BOSTON, MA Middle East

THU 5/5 TORONTO, ON Horseshoe Tavern
FRI 5/6 DETROIT, MI Magic Stick
SAT 5/7 CHICAGO, IL Empty Bottle

SAT 5/14 SAN FRANCISCO, CA Bottom of the Hill

And thirdly, here is where we stand currently and why the tour above isn't a full tour. We finished up recording for the new "D.U.M.E." ep around the first of Dec. '04. Currently (Jan. 1 - April 15) we are writing all the songs for our next full length album (it will come out October 11 on THRILL JOCKEY as well). Then are small mini-tour above. And then we have to go into the studio May 16-31 and record the album. So as you can see these are all the dates we could do at this time... but fear not if you are in a city not listed above. We will be doing more shows starting in the summer and an extensive tour in the Fall for the album.

June 11, 2004
So what's up with ADULT. you ask?
Well, as you might already know, we also run our own label Ersatz Audio. We had 6 new releases on the label this Spring and that took up most of our time from January until yesterday. But now everything is basically done with that for a while, and that means we get to take off our label hats and go back to ADULT. We will start working on our next album soon. It won't be ready for a LONG time, but at least we are now able to start on it. So we'll keep you posted on that.
