Not only are Sleep touring this year, Al Cisneros' psychedelic band Om are too. They're playing Mesa, Flagstaff, Denver, Taos, and Grand Junction, which follow the band's shows in the UK and Europe earlier in the month. All dates here. No word yet on a new album or anything; their last LP came out seven years ago.
NOISEM / CALL OF THE VOID / ORGAN DEALER
Losing half their band members didn't stop Noisem from creating one of the strongest LPs of their career, 2019's Cease To Exist, and the band just revealed a full US tour behind the album. The band's new lineup will be touring in May and June, beginning in Cleveland, and hitting other cities including NYC (El Cortez on 6/8), Austin, Houston, Chicago, Denver, Detroit, St. Louis, and much more, with quality support from Call Of The Void and Organ Dealer on select dates. Tickets are on sale now, and you can find the full list of dates here.

Latin trap artist Anuel AA is set to play the previously-announced Mega Mezcla at Prudential Center this Sunday (4/21) with J Balvin, Ozuna, Farruko, and more.
