Kings of American noise/trip-metal band Wolf Eyes, who released I Am a Problem: Mind in Pieces last year, are gearing up for a tour with Third Man Records labelmates Timmy's Organism and Video. Wolf Eyes won't be on the NYC dates of that tour but they have just announced a three-night run at Brooklyn's Union Pool February 4-6. Joining them will be member of Michigan Underground Group who will be helping with Wolf Eyes performances in various capacities:
Joining them every night will be APE TECHNOLOGY on automated & specifically tuned machinery from their vast assemblage of self-playing audio varmint-sculptures, Sam Hookers' TARPIT project playing tapes, strings, and synth, and rounding out Michigan squad is newcomer Tyler Hicks, aka THANKS USA on all things strange, homemade. VIKI VIKTORIA brings a quadrophonic process to the mix and general Midwestern ghastly audio compositions.
Tickets for all three shows are on sale now.
In addition to I Am a Problem, Wolf Eyes John "Inzane" Olson is readying a new book of record reviews via Third Man Books (which is apparently a thing). It's called Life is a Rip Off Part One, and it arrives sometime soon, limited to 250 copies and only available via Third Man. So keep an eye out.
