The LA noise/industrial label Chondritic Sound--the label that has Believer/Law, Marshstepper and more on their impressive roster--has organized a run of east coast dates for the middle of the summer, bringing three label acts with them. Hitting the road will be the droning, pulsing noise project Hive Mind of Chondritic boss Greh, the chaotic power electronics project Redrot, the eardrum ringing noise of Shredded Nerve and non-Chondritic noise act Scant. To share a descriptor of Scant's sound from the NYC show's Facebook event page--"PURE, BLEAK HARSH NOISE, NO BULLSHIT." Check out their string of dates below.
The tour lands in New York at Trans Pecos on July 29, where they will team up with noise veteran Rodger Stella, formerly of the influential Macronympha. Locals FFH, an unsettling noise act with a number of releases on Hospital Productions, and H.C.O.D will add support. More info at the show's event page.
