After his latest tour and album announcement, there’s already plenty of excitement circulating for Figure‘s upcoming fall plans. Today he ups the ante with a new single from the upcoming Monsters Vol. 5, as well as some extra special news about his upcoming tour.
The new single, “It’s Alive”, brings a strong hip-hop influence, especially from California hip-hop DJ and producer, D-Styles. The track enters on quick, jabbing synthesizers. Through the first section, Figure’s own production can be heavily heard. The first drop carries itself through a signature BPM. D-Styles contributes some nice breaks through the middle section of the song, while the beat kicks back into a hip-hop pace. Figure carries the track out mostly from there, knocking out an even more serious concoction with the second drop, flailing destructive noise in all directions.
Along with releasing the new single, Figure also made the official announcement that none other than Space Laces will be joining him on the upcoming tour. Space Laces has served a heavy hand in the Destroid project, and has shown plenty of impressive work in his own production. The upcoming shows will also mark the Texas producer’s first live performances.
Space Laces will be joining Figure at the majority of his tour dates (excludingSan Antonio, Texas; San Diego, California; and Nightmare Festival in Darlington, Maryland). The two will appear for at SoundGarden Hall in Philadelphia on Friday, October 24th (ticket information below). The show will mark Figure’s third year in a row at the venue after playing its grand opening in September 2012.
