Last month, Seattle-based solo artist Mike Hadreas released his fourth album No Shape under his stage name Perfume Genius.  The album is the follow up to 2014's critically acclaimed Too Bright. Hadreas began releasing recordings through MySpace under the name Perfume Genius in 2008. This attracted the attention of Matador Records, which released Perfume Genius' debut Learning in 2010.

No Shape received rapturous reviews upon its release with Pitchfork calling it "pure decadence" and "his most realized album yet".

Perfume Genius is off to Europe after an upcoming run of west coast shows.
