Amanda Palmer is a singer, writer, pianist, activist and blogger who simultaneously embraces and explodes traditional frameworks of music, theatre, community and art. She first came to prominence as one half of the Boston-based punk cabaret duo The Dresden Dolls, earning global applause for their wide-ranging theatricality and inventive song craft.
Her solo career has proven equally brave and boundless.
'There Will Be No Intermission' is Palmer's third solo LP, and first in six years. This release is the multi-faceted artist's most powerful and personal collection to date, with songs that tackle the big questions: life, death, grief and how we make sense with it all. While the themes may be dark, the album's overall sonic and lyrical mood is one of triumph in the face of life's most ineffably shitty circumstances.
Recorded over a single month in Los Angeles by Grammy Award-winner John Congleton, 'There Will Be No Intermission' was entirely crowd-funded, this time by 12,000 patrons using Palmer's community hub at patreon.com.
