tours announced: HR of Bad Brains, Robert Glasper, Twin Temple, Kindling, more
The following new tours were announced. Check the Tour Dates category every day for more.
LA duo Twin Temple do retro doo-wop revival with dark Satanic imagery, and in a recent interview with Noisey, the band talked about their style, asking, “what if a crooner back then hailed Satan instead? Or what if occult rock embraced du-wop instead of the emerging rock n’ roll of the day?” Ahead of their previously-announced dates opening for the Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats/Graveyard tour in March, they’ve got their own pair of headlining shows: first at Chicago’s Metro on 3/3, before stopping at NYC’s Saint Vitus on 3/5. Tickets go on sale Friday (1/25) at 10 AM, and you can find all dates here. The band also recently dropped their gory, NSFW video for “Sex Magick,” which you can view below.
