Alcest played Irving Plaza with The Body & Creepers (pics, setlist)
French black metallers Alcest recently wrapped up a North American tour in support of last year's Kodama, their best album since 2010's Ecailles de Lune. Joining Alcest for this run were the genre-defying The Body and Deafheaven offshoot Creepers. We caught the tour's last stop at NYC's Irving Plaza on Sunday (2/19).
We unfortunately showed up a little late and missed Creepers, but The Body were as great and unique as ever. The duo were joined by two guest vocalists and another guy on electronics. Alcest were great as always too, playing a good chunk of the new album and some favorites from Ecailles de Lune too (among other stuff). Pictures are in the gallery above. Setlist below.
