Ex-Defenestration and Chainsaw Kittens’ frontman, Tyson Meade, will release his third solo record on May 20th. During his break from music, the Oklahoma native taught English in China and was inspired to write a new album when one of his students, a violin prodigy named Haffijy, wrote parts for some of his old songs. Tommorrow in Progress is a truly collaborative effort, comprising input from Haffijy himself, members of bands such as the Flaming Lips and Smashing Pumpkins, and featuring children from various areas of the States providing instrumentation.
