DOUGLAS DARE streams new album 'Aforger' in full online!
Set for release Oct 14th via Erased Tape Records! New London show announced! Questioning the boundaries between reality & fiction, Douglas Dare streams luxuriant new album online in full!
Ahead of the release this week via Erased Tapes, London-based artist Douglas Dare is streaming his new luxuriant new album 'Aforger' in full online. Dare will also play a headline London show on November 8th at Electrowerkz.
In a digital age, where memories are mimicked by pixels and identity is as malleable as static, Douglas Dare’s new album Aforger questions the boundaries between reality and fiction.
Inspired by recent events and revelations encountered in his life these songs depict Dare at his most vulnerable, whilst simultaneously reflecting our own obsession with reality and technology back at us.
“The album title plays with the idea of a forger – someone creating imitations or copies, and reimagines them as the creator of something that’s no longer real” he explains. “Prior to writing the record, I came out to my father and came out of a long relationship, both were hugely challenging for me and questioned my idea of identity and reality. These thoughts leaked out into the record and formed the core of Aforger. I was determined not to write a break-up album or repeat what I’d done before.”

Aforger was mastered at the iconic Abbey Road Studios and produced by long-time collaborator Fabian Prynn.

Nils Frahm and Fink, followed by European headline tours in 2014 and 2015, this autumn will see Douglas Dare return to the live circuit for a series of select shows across Europe in support of Wild Beasts as well as a headline London show.
