Polish black/death heavyweights Behemoth have announced a North American tour with Myrkur. Behemoth will be playing their already-classic 2014 album The Satanist in its entirety, which is pretty exciting. The tour will also feature a showcase for an exhibition called "The Congregation," which is the collaboration between Behemoth and the artist Toxic Vision, who works on the art and costumes for Behemoth. Myrkur, who only recently made her live debut, is coming off of last year's strong M LP.
The tour stops in NYC for a show at Webster Hall on April 23 (UPDATE: the NYC show was moved from April 22 to 23). Tickets go on sale Friday (1/15) at 10 AM with a presale starting Thursday (1/14) at 10 AM. This will be Myrkur's first-ever NYC show. All dates are listed below.
Behemoth's frontman and multi-hyphenate Nergal, (autobiographer, barber shop owner, and frequent guest on The Voice of Poland), is also supposedly working on a solo acoustic project, posting studio updates last year. Maybe we'll get to see some of that on the new tour (I doubt it).
