Dark Castle guitarist Stevie Floyd takes a step into a different realm with Taurus, her new project with Ashley Spungin of Purple Rhinestone Eagle fame. The duo explore some of the same darkness and odd guitar tones that made the Dark Castle material so unique, yet they visit it in a more drone/experimental fashion on their debut LP Life. Stream all of the first side below. You can order a copy at their Bandcamp.
Taurus will hit the road for a string of dates with Agalloch this summer (including Music Hall of Williamsburg on 7/26, tickets),
but they'll also be in NYC on July 14, blessing Rockwood Music Hall's bigger Stage 2 at 10pm that night. UPDATE: Due to a glitch in the Bandcamp app in Facebook, this is NOT the same Taurus scheduled for Rockwood Music Hall on 7/14.
All tour dates and that stream, below...
Agalloch at Inferno 2012 (more by BBG)
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.
