NeurosisClear your schedules, and line up an appointment with a masseuse on Jan 26th. Your neck is gonna be hurtin'.

Neurosis is back! The kings of underground heavy-tribal-space-crust-doom will return to NYC with a pair of shows at the 100-year-old Brooklyn Masonic Temple on January 24th & 25th. Tickets are already on sale.....

San Fran's finest will be supported by Neurot Recordings labelmates US Christmas & A Storm Of Light, and according to (who found the info @ crustcake), an unnamed "more famous" metal band from Atlanta who they declare to be none other than Mastodon!

Mastodon (along with Isis, Baroness, Converge, High On Fire, and many many many others) count Neurosis as one of the most important bands to the formation of their sound. Troy Sanders (bass) has said that Neurosis's "Times Of Grace" is the most influential album to the Mastodon sound. Their only other show is New Years Eve in San Francisco @ Great American Music Hall w/ Earth (paid admission guarantees a limited ed show only Tribes of Neurot / Earth 7")

"In other Neurosis-related news, guitarist Scott Kelly is working on a doom side project called Shrinebuilder with Al Cisneros and Chris Hakius of Om and the legendary Wino (The Obsessed, The Hidden Hand)." Neurosis videos below...
