Yesterday, March 29, the Disco Biscuits released its long-awaited ninth studio album Revolution in Motion, the band’s first full-length studio offering in ten years. To celebrate this landmark re-entry, the Biscuits returned to New York’s Webster Hall for the first time since 1998 with a full run-through the expansive concept album, assuming the roles of their “space-opera” counterparts in a dazzling, immersive two-set performance. Attendees to the sold-out show were treated to the group’s typical array of surprises, including special guest appearances from Erin Boyd, Matteo Scammell and Cloudchord.

The 10-year gap between the prolific livetronica pioneers’ 2014 album The Classic Set and Revolution in Motion is far and away the longest in a studio catalog that spans nearly three decades. With that, the Disco Biscuits’ passionate fanbase showed out on Friday, charging the atmosphere with an electric anticipation that amplified the show’s celebratory tone. Fans were first greeted by set-pieces like standees of the alien characters in Revolution in Motion’s accompanying visual album and commemorative show posters; further immersion came from lighting and laser design by Herm Schneider and the album’s visual component, animated by Blunt Action and Todd Kushnir, playing in sync with the live music throughout the show.

The Disco Biscuits kicked off this historic performance with “Shocked!,” the first cut from the album, released in January within Part 1. This led the band into a sequential rendering of each cut from the album, segued perfectly by the band’s trademark soaring, cosmic jams. The first set of the evening comprised disc 1 of the album, featuring a guest spot from Boyd, a member of the Resistance Revival Chorus, as “The Queen” on “Twisted in the Road” and culminating in “Freeze.”

After a moment away, the band returned to the stage with “Tourists (Rocket Ship),” featuring additional vocals from Matteo Scammell as “The Scientist.” This led into “Spaga’s Last Stand, which included a blazing guitar solo from Cloudchord, the acclaimed electronic and instrumental musician who helped produce the album; Cloudchord’s fierce playing built to an axe battle with the band’s keyboardist Aron Magner, who donned a campy and anthemic keytar onstage for the first time ever. The group proceeded through the final sides of its recent album before arriving at the grand finale of “To Be Continued,” for which Scammell reprised his role as “The Scientist.”

The Disco Biscuits will return to the stage tonight for another sold-out show at Buffalo, N.Y.’s Town Ballroom. The band’s epic Why We Dance Tour will continue for 20 more appearances through the end of the summer, including six festival sets and the second annual BISCOLAND, returning to Lafayette, N.Y.’s Wonderland Forest from July 4-6.
