Man Forever

The music of drummer John Colpitts as Man Forever is explorative, innovative and fearless. A musician and composer equally versed in the disparate musical languages of DIY rock, improvisation, and contemporary classical.

Following the release of his sophomore album with Greg Fox (Liturgy, Guardian Alien) Biting Through earlier this year, visionary composer and multi-instrumentalist John Colpitts has announced a string of European tour dates for his Man Forever project this December. Performing solo, Colpitts will be premiering a new show that investigates his recent experience of being involved in a traumatic car accident.

The collaborative process, essential to Man Forever, requires the relinquishing of one’s ego for a greater purpose. On last years Thrill Jockey release - Play What They Want, Colpitts leverages a vast and talented stable of diverse collaborators to create a work that transcends the sum of its parts.

Propulsive, elaborate drum arrangements (created with TIGUE Percussion) are augmented by voice and melody with contributions from Laurie Anderson, Yo La Tengo, and Mary Lattimore to name a few.
