Psychic Ills play Knitting Factory tonight (11/9), a sort of warm-up shot before the pair head to the far east for a Chinese tour (!). Tickets are still available for the shindig that will also feature appearances from Guardian Alien and Starring. After a few weeks away from the road following their Chinese tour, look for the band to split to the West coast to play LA, SF and finally the Sacred Bones five year anniversary show in the Mojave desert alongside labelmates Zola Jesus and Cult of Youth among others. (Oh and to celebrate the apocalypse too.) Full tour schedule is below.
While we wait for completion of the new Psychic Ills effort (in the works), the Brooklyn band has a gift for us in the meantime. Head below to catch a new video for "Travelin' Man" from their 2011 release Hazed Dream alongside a list of all dates and the Chinese tour flyer.
