Below is our complete Bruce Lamont news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Multi-instrumentalist and vocal sorcerer Bruce Lamont (Yakuza, Bloodiest, Circle Of Animals, Led Zeppelin 2) has confirmed a string of solo tour dates for this month, leading up-to and following his action-packed and diverse set of shows at this year's annual SXSW congregation in Austin.
Lamont will be collaborating with random other musicians and artists on several of the shows -- similar to the impromptu live sets he pulled-off at last year's SXSW with Eyehategod's Mike Williams and Castevet's Andrew Hock, and just last month with Scott Kelly of Neurosis/Shrinebuilder on his current solo tour. Additionally the tour will showcase Lamont performing with an array of artists during the run, including Rwake, Zoroaster, Andrew W.K., Alcest and more, including supporting Nachtmystium and The Atlas Moth on a majority of the appearances.
On these upcoming appearances Bruce Lamont will be performing versions of some of the material on his debut solo album "Feral Songs For The Epic Decline" -- which received massive media praise including Alarm Press, Decibel, Stereogum, Terrorizer and even a place in Spin Magazine's 2011 year-end metal lists -- as well as newer material he's been concocting since the album's release in January 2011. As with his previous solo tours over the past two years, Lamont will be executing multiple instruments and a plethora of vocal styles, with an incredibly layered looping system that culminates into some of the most entrancing live solo artist work one could ask for. Rumor has it fans can also find Lamont guest bartending and otherwise partying hard throughout the SXSW circuit when he's not performing. More...
On March 16th from noon to 6PM at The Longbranch Inn (1133 East 11th Street, Austin, TX), Century Media Records, CVLT Nation, and Stumptown Coffee Roasters will present a free party held during the annual SXSW music festival.
The event features the legendary Andrew W.K., black metallers Nachtmystium, psychedelic sludge The Atlas Moth, multi-talented Bruce Lamont, blackened crust warriors Young and the Way, ambient crustcorers Vestiges, and evil punk/hardcore band Enabler!
Additionally, Mike IX, the host of this special event, will also read passages from his latest book, Cancer as a Social Activity.
