Rangda

Rangda kicked off a tour with their labelmates Major Stars at Brooklyn's Knitting Factory last night (8/28). The Drag City supergroup consists of Ben Chasny of Six Organs of Admittance, Sir Richard Bishop of Sun City Girls and Chris Corsano in what Drag City describes as "a guitar-guitar-drums mind-melt for the ages". Their upcoming shows include the Godspeed-curated ATP in Minehead this December and Cake Shop in NYC TONIGHT (8/28). Their debut record, False Flag, is out now...

"Calling it "noise music" would be an insult. Rangda is, more than anything, "classic rock," a perhaps ultimate optimization of the breakdown. If you listen to the worst of SCG, you'll stop caring. If you listen to Rangda, with an attentive ear, you'll hear an ass-thrashing rock and roll coda that never starts and never ends." [Dusted]

After Cake Shop they're on the road through the middle of September. All dates below...
