Earth at Inferno Festival 2012, Oslo, Norway (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
Seattle's Earth released their most recent record, Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light II, in February via Southern Lord. After they complete Australian and Japanese tours in September, Earth are set to head out on a month-long US run in support of the LP with a rotating cast of openers. They'll visit Chicago on that tour for a two-night stand at Township on November 16 &17. Support on both shows will come from Eagle Twin and Stebmo, and advance tickets are on sale now.
Speaking of Eagle Twin, they're due to release their new LP, As The Feather Tipped the Serpent's Scale, later this month via Southern Lord. You can take a listen to two tracks from that album, called "Ballad of Job Cain Part II" and "Snake Hymn," at the bottom of this post.
All Earth dates are listed below...
Earth - "Sigil of Brass"
Earth - "His Teeth Did Brightly Shine"
Eagle Twin - "Ballad of Job Cain Part II"
Eagle Twin - "Snake Hymn"
