Milwaukee's Collections of Colonies Of Bees have been busy of late. They are currently on Tour in Japan with their project Volcano Choir with Justin Vernon of Bon Iver. Most recently, they have been signed to the Portland based indie label Hometapes, and will be releasing a new album entitled "Giving" in early 2011.  To celebrate, Hometapes created a T-Shirt to celebrate the union, which you can purchase here.

"Collections of Colonies of Bees are some of our oldest friends and a band we’ve admired for over a decade. It’s a dream come true to release their music, and we’ll be doing so early next year…in the shape of a new record named GIVING."

Here are Volcano Choir performing Island, IS in Japan, which you can hear on 88Nine.

Also check out a couple of rehearsal video from their Japanese tour below.
