Taken from 'Theatre Is Evil'

Amanda Palmer is giving away new cut 'The Killing Type' - taken from upcoming album 'Theatre Is Evil'.

These days, fans are more important than ever. Plotting her return, Amanda Palmer knew that she couldn't depend on the label system to act as a support.

So she simply asked the people who cared more about her new material. Opening up a Kickstarter campaign, Amanda Palmer raised the $100,000 she needed in just a few hours - then watched as the total kept rising.

“I've been waiting what seems like ages to release this album, trying to figure out how to serve it best, since I think it's the best material I've ever written" she said recently. "I had to find the right business team, the right musicians, the right producer, and most importantly, the right system through which to release it. I've been experimenting with self-releasing little projects for a while, learning as I go, and my team knows enough now to self-release a massive record.”

Completing her new album with The Grand Theft Orchestra earlier this year, Amanda Palmer is now set to break cover. 'Theatre Is Evil' will be released on September 10th, with the artist planning to accompany the material with a sprinkling of live shows.

Ahead of this, Amanda Palmer & The Grand Theft Orchestra are giving away 'The Killing Type'. The first sign of her new material, you can download it HERE.
