Tim Kasher is set to release his debut solo album, The Game Of Monogamy, on October 5th, 2010 via Saddle Creek. Recorded this past January in Whitefish, MT, at SnowGhost Music and in his rental home in the small town, the album marks the first time Kasher – frontman for celebrated acts Cursive and The Good Life – has written, recorded, and produced an album under his own name.
Kasher enlisted Patrick Newbery (trumpet/keys for Cursive; also of Lacona and Head of Femur) to help with the arrangements, the production, and to play on the record. Friends Erin Tate (Minus The Bear) and Matt Maginn (Cursive) also stopped by to add some drum and bass parts, respectively, and members of the Glacier National Symphony were recruited for the classical instrument parts.
On July 27th, Kasher will headline a show at the Tonic Room in Chicago and perform material from the new album for the first time with a backing band. More solo touring news will be announced soon.
