Black Breath at Knitting Factory in 2013 (more by Lukas Hodge)
Yautja are seemingly everywhere these days. (Which is okay, because they rule.) Not only did they just play a shitload of SXSW dates, including our Invisible Oranges showcase, and not only are they touring with the post-Gaza bangers Cult Leader (who are currently streaming their debut EP) in May, but they've also been announced as part of an exciting mini-tour with live favorites Black Breath & NYC fixtures Mutilation Rites, both of whom will be on their way to their respective Maryland Deathfest appearances. The short run will also include the grind band Theories, whom I don't know much about but whose recorded work sounds promising. (Check some out below.)
The five-date jaunt will hit NYC on 5/28 at Santos Party House. Tickets go on sale this Friday (4/4) at 10am. They're only $13 if you get them in advance (before fees), and it's also a 16+ show.
Black Breath were also initially announced for NJ pop punk festival Skate & Surf which takes place the weekend before their tour starts, but they're no longer listed on the festival's website. We haven't gotten any official word, but the site does say "lineup subject to change without notice."
Check out the full set of dates and some recent music by each band on the tour, below...
