Cult of Luna & Julie Christmas announce North American live dates
Last year, post-metal giants Cult of Luna teamed with crazed vocalist Julie Christmas for the excellent collaborative album Mariner (one of my favorite metal albums of the year). It was already announced that they'd be performing the songs live together at Psycho Las Vegas in August, and now CoL + Julie announced a collaborative tour kicking off the day after that fest.
The tour ends in NYC on August 25 at Gramercy Theatre. Tickets for that show are on Live Nation/Music Geeks presale now, and they go on sale to the general public on Friday (2/10) at 10 AM. All dates are listed below.
Regarding the tour, Julie Christmas says, "We never thought Mariner was going to be played live. After seeing so many far-traveling US brothers and sisters at shows across Europe, we are excited to have a chance to roar in America. We don't care about your color, who you snuggle with, or what you have in your back pocket. I guess what I'm trying to say is Dear America, we are coming. Be there, or we'll kill you."
Cult of Luna are also releasing a live album/film, Years In A Day, on April 21. That's the artwork above. Here's the trailer:
