Ben Frost

Iceland-by-way-of-Australia extreme noise composer Ben Frost has recently announced some fall tour dates as he continues to support his excellent 2014 album A U R O R A. The tour will include a stop in NYC for a show at The Wick on October 18. That show is presented by Pitchfork's metal arm, Show No Mercy, and preexisting metal series Blackened Music as the first in a new series they're calling "Tinnitus," which will focus on "composers of extreme sound." Frost generally performs with a band that includes master percussionists Thor Harris (Swans) and Greg Fox (Liturgy, Zs), among other talented musicians, and his live show is something to behold. No word on who'll be playing with him (or the rest of the lineup) but tickets are on sale now.
