 Chad VanGaalen To Release Shrink Dust On April 29 

Calgary artist set to release fifth studio album via Flemish Eye Records

Listen to it in its entirety NOW

Shrink Dust is Chad VanGaalen’s fifth studio album (not counting the 10 cassette-only releases that the notoriously prolific artist dropped in 2011, and countless other miscellaneous bonus albums over the course of the last 10 years). The album hits the shelves April 29th in Canada on Flemish Eye and everywhere else via Sub Pop, and was produced by Chad VanGaalen at his Yoko Eno home studio in Calgary, Alberta. You can listen to it now courtesy of Exclaim and CBC Music and Chad will commence a North American tour on May 13. All dates are listed below.


Pre-orders of Shrink Dust via iTunes will receive an instant download of “Monster” and the first single “Where Are You?” immediately. Pre-orders of the album through the Flemish Eye store will include a booklet of original artwork by Chad featuring crazy frisbee moves. Two new T-shirt designs featuring Chad’s artwork are also available to purchase with CD and LP bundles.
Bonus content: Chad recently started posting his weird and unique visions to Instagram. You can follow him as he posts hand-made sculptures, drawings, animation clips, and his new sequence of, uh, piss drawings. Trust us, you need in your feed.
