Minneapolis neo-progressives Elite Gymnastics are working on a new two-part album. Last year the duo put out Ruin 1 & 2, now its companion piece Ruin 3 & 4 is on the way. Elite Gymnastics have already posted a free download of Ruin 3, which is comprised of remixes by CFCF, How To Dress Well, and others.
3 will be physically available with the release of 4 on May 8 via Acéphale. The CD will include the remixes from 3, two Ruin 1 & 2 outtakes, and a free t-shirt.
A month before the CD comes out, Elite Gymnastics will embark on a North American tour with Sleigh Bells. Elite Gymnasts will open for Sleigh bells between April 3 and 25 with shows almost entirely in the western states. Check out the tour schedule below.
