NEW YORK, NY - The prog/rock quartet TAUK announces today they will hit the road this Fall in support of their latest full-length album, Homunculus. The band will play 30 cities in 2 months, sharing the stage with talented acts throughout the trek including Dopapod, Aqueous, Acoustic Anonymous, Glostik Willy, Jahman Brahman, Nomadic and many more! TAUK joined forces with Grammy-Winning Producer Robert Carranza (Mars Volta, Jack Johnson) to craft their first entirely instrumental full-length album. For more information on the album and tickets, please visit: www.taukband.com                     

This tour announcement comes just as the band is featured in the September issue of Relix Magazine as an "On The Verge" Artist, joining the ranks of Yeasayer, Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Mumford & Sons - all "On The Verge" artists featured in the past few years. The issues is on stands today or available at www.relix.com

TAUK's unique experimental blend of instrumental funk, jazz, pop, and rock landed the band spots on last summer's biggest festivals such as Bonnaroo, The Hangout Music Festival, Summer Camp Music Festival, The Allman Brother's Peach Fest, snoe.Down, Mazfest and opening gigs for moe., Robert Randolph & the Family Band, Perpetual Groove, O.A.R., 311, Tea Leaf Green, Toubab Krewe and more.

TAUK is Matt Jalbert (Guitar), Charlie Dolan (Bass), Alric "A.C." Carter (Keyboard-Organ), and Isaac Teel (Drums). Forming in middle school, a majority of TAUK's members have been playing together for over a decade. The group experimented with their sound throughout the years both individually while studying at top music universities and conservatories, and together as a band - always working to find their ideal sound. It wasn't until 2012 with the addition of drummer, Isaac Teel, and the realization the band could build a fan base around a completely instrumental act, that the pieces fell into place for Homunculus. Jalbert explains, "This band has been through a lot, but we hit a point last year where it just felt like things were coming together the way they were supposed to. We really wanted this new album to be a statement as to what TAUK is all about."

TAUK manages to create a live show experience to match their masterfully produced recordings.  The unique chemistry and relaxed-focus of Tauk's performance is undeniable, but their ability to create immensely melodic and emotional music without a vocal lead is what continues to captivate and impress music lovers across all genres. The future continues to look bright for this talented and ambitious quartet.
