Walter TV (members of Mac DeMarco Band) Announce Tour, Release ‘Appetite’

Walter TV, known by some as Mac DeMarco’s touring band, is composed of Pierce McGarry, Joseph McMurray and Simon Ankenman. The trio’s sound is built upon frenetic percussion, warbling vocals, abstract guitar and a resonant bass line. Last week, they officially released their debut album Appetite for the first time on vinyl and CD via Sinderlyn Records. The special edition LP will include a poster, a dvd of shorts filmed by Pierce and starring Joseph, and a zine.

In support of its release, they will be heading on tour at the start of October for a short run of dates. Check out the new music video for “Master Ludi,” directed by Cole Kush.
