Chicago psychedelic metal staples The Atlas Moth returned earlier this year with the great, Sanford Parker-produced Coma Noir, which is their heaviest album yet but not at the expense of their trippy side. They just began a mostly West Coast tour in support of it this week, and they've now added an East Coast tour for September, where they'll be opening for West Virginia metalcore vets Zao. Those dates have additional support from Yashira too.

The run with Zao was to have included a Brooklyn show on September 22 at Saint Vitus, but after that was announced, Zao posted, "Just wanted to give people a heads up. There were crossed wires and this date was double booked. We are exploring alternate night options. So hold tight on tickets until we give the ok." Stay tuned for an update. UPDATE: 9/22 at Saint Vitus it is.
