South London's bass and drums power duo Ghold begins a first North American tour in just one week, supporting the revoltingly intense debut LP, "Of Ruin." Ghold will bring monolithic sludge to stateside fans as direct support for Norwegian avant-rock explorers, Årabrot.
Several new shows have been added to the upcoming tour, bringing the total of cities to be decimated by the Ghold and Årabrot combo to twenty-three. The action begins on June 24th in Boston, after which it will wind its way throughout the country and into Canada in a mangled counter-clockwise path closing down in New York City on July 19th.
Along the way, the tour package will be joined by the likes of Rabbits, Towers, Dispirit, Lycus and many others, including Pinkish Black on the final six dates. More...
