Shmu is one half of the duo known as Zorch, and after making it on my list of Best Albums Of 2013… okay, maybe this isn’t the reason, but it’s a way for you (the reader) to hop on over to my Best Albums Of 2013 list, and since we made it this far without talking about why this post exists, let’s start again.

Shmu, the man you see in the above photo, will be releasing an EP in two weeks on Grand Theft Zamboni Records called Chroma Key and to get people into what he’s creating, he will be going on tour. Here are the dates:

Chroma Key is said to be the first of a series of EP’s to be released in 2014, which will lead to all of it being compiled for a double album (!!) by the end of the year. There will no doubt be more concert dates throughout the year, so be prepared for Shmu-ness.
