Agalloch at Inferno 2012 (more by BBG)
Agalloch

Agalloch will be on the East Coast this month for Maryland Deathfest, and will be back to the East Coast for more shows very soon. The black-metal tinged crew will hit the road for a few confirmed dates that seem to be part of a burgeoning tour, including a date in NYC with Taurus and Musk Ox at Music Hall of Williamsburg on July 26th. Tickets are currently on AMEX presale and go on regular sale on Friday (5/18) at noon. All scheduled dates are listed below.

Agalloch recently completed recording their new EP Faustian Echoes with Billy Anderson. The new EP has no release date (or releasee) officially announced, but we'll let you know when that changes. Until then, you can order your copy of The Demonstration Archive 1996-1998 on 3LP boxset to catch up on the older material. Get yours via Eisenwald.

In other news, Aesop Dekker of Agalloch (Worm Ouroboros, ex-Ludicra, etc) will team with Mike Scheidt (YOB), Sigrid Sheie (Hammers of Misfortune, Amber Asylum), and John Cobbett (Hammers of Misfortune, ex-Ludicra) for a new band recording this fall. Details of this project are currently hazy, but we'll keep you informed. In the meantime, catch Yob on Wednesday at Bell House (5/23) with a solo Mike Scheidt and Cough. Tickets are still available. Yob will also be playing Maryland Deathfest.

Check out a recent live video of Agalloch in action along with a listing of all tour dates below.

Sorry, but as much as I like Agalloch, it somehow doesn't seem fitting that it's right in the middle of summer. That's quite a weird juxtaposition.

Jeremy Lin's stats don't speak to his importance to the team, and the league

3:15 - I came here to say that exact same thing, haha.
Last time I saw them was in Chicago in early spring and the venue didn't have heat. I was freezing even in a parka, but it suited the music.

^ you own a "parka"? that is very metal.

What kind of metal dude wears a parka? North Face? Arc'teryx? What are we talking here?

Posted by Anonymous | May 16, 2012 3:33 PM

So pumped for this.

Posted by Anonymous | May 16, 2012 3:38 PM

Yeah, I know, freezing to death would have been pretty metal, but I'm waiting to freeze to death in Norway, not Chicago, so parka it was.

^so kind of like the sausage they showed a while back who was wearing four inch spikes and New Balances?

You sausages need to work on your attention to detail.

Cool!

Frozen sausages
Look for them in your deli isle, or just ask D

Posted by Anonymous | May 16, 2012 3:48 PM

3:44 - Hey, man, Eric Cutler's, like, 45. I bet you'll love the arch support of your New Balances at that age too.

Or, you know, maybe, a lot of metalheads aren't as image/fashion obsessed as you apparently are to care about what sausages wear.

^sausage logic. Imagage/fashion obsessed? He is a 45 your old man wearing spiked wrist bands!

Posted by Anonymous | May 16, 2012 4:09 PM

they must be filling some dates between brooklyn and atlanta, no?

Posted by Anonymous | May 16, 2012 4:22 PM

what about a 45 year old with tattoos who got them when he was 25. is he not image obsessed anymore and wish he didn't have them or could that 45 year old still be image obsessed. i guess it could go either way. what's the difference?

Posted by Anonymous | May 16, 2012 4:41 PM

^nah no difference, just another retard with no concept of foresight.

Off-topic fashion advice coming from English queers with thick-rimmed hideous glasses and disgustingly horrible looking beards with a scarf that features 7 colors (you know, the same amount a rainbow has :) ). Ahahahahaha...

We go live to locker #283.

^this due has stupid tattoos and stretched earlobes. Don't worry, it shouldn't hinder your career in the pizza delivery industry too severely.

I wish slough feg would come back.

Posted by Anonymous | May 17, 2012 9:59 AM

i second that 9:59, slough feg would be great to see. I know they are still playing. have some dates on the west coast in July.

I just don't see why EVERY band has to neglect Connecticut. I'm not faulting Agalloch, as it's common to neglect a state populated by ignorant idiots who don't know music outside of what they hear on the radio, despite a good underground/local scene, which is also unfortunately not embraced here.

But the bottom line being I live in CT, cannot make the Cambridge date (although the Brooklyn one is a "maybe"), and would love to see Connecticut receive some recognition by one of my favourite bands.

Additionally, while again not trying to attack this band, they played The Middle East a year ago. I'm not faulting them for choosing the same venue as they more than likely simply enjoyed playing the venue, but I'd love to see a show pop up at The Webster Underground or Toad's Place. Admittedly for selfish reasons, but I'd still love to see it.
