Post-metal gods Neurosis just played a six-song, hour-long set at Maryland Deathfest over the weekend (full set video below), and now they're set to go on a full North American tour this summer! They're calling it their "most extensive touring of the North American continent in over fifteen years," and it's certainly true that they don't tour too often. Their last NYC show was January 2013. It was part of a very short tour and it was their first gig here since 2008.
All dates on the upcoming tour are with Brothers of the Sonic Cloth, the new sludge metal band of TAD frontman Tad Doyle who are on Neurosis' Neurot Recordings label. There's various additional support bands on other dates, including a run with Sumac, the current band of ex-Isis frontman Aaron Turner which also includes Baptists' Nick Yacyshyn on drums and Russian Circles' Brian Cook (also ex-Botch, ex-These Arms Are Snakes) as their live bassist.
The Neurosis/Brothers/Sumac run hits NYC on August 9 at Warsaw. Tickets for that ridiculous triple bill go on sale Friday (5/29) at 1 PM. All dates are listed below.
After that tour, Aaron Turner will be on tour with his other band Old Man Gloom (which also features Converge and Cave In members) that hits NYC on 9/3 and 9/4 at Saint Vitus (night 1 sold out, night 2 on sale). The reunited Mare open both shows.
