Evelyn Evelyn Set To Release Debut, Tour The World

'Discovered' by Amanda Palmer (The Dresden Dolls) and Jason Webley, Evelyn Evelyn are the world's first conjoined singer-songwriter duo. Produced, and, ok, performed, by Palmer and Webley, Evelyn Evelyn's debut album is a thing of wonder, imagination, and beauty in the vein of Tim Burton films. The album serves as a genre-jumping rock opera that you are unlikely to get out of your head for months after you hear it. Songs range from the gloriously cheesy eighties power ballad "My Space" to the ragtime piano bop of "Have You Seen My Sister Evelyn?" What really makes the album tick are the amazingly detailed, heartbreaking songwriting. Rather than giving anything away about Evelyn Evelyn's upbringing and troubles, we suggest giving the album a listen from start to finish as soon as possible. The quickest way would be to pre-order the album (here), so you can receive the code to download the album before the release date.

With the debut set to release on March 30th, the duo is set to tour, with only a couple of dates so far for the states. No luck for any Chicago dates yet, but we will keep you posted. This is the kind of manic, inventive brilliance you need to see live.
