Earth Announces Fall U.S. Tour Dates

After several months of silence, following bursts of worldwide touring in support of the two-part "Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light" album series, Earth has confirmed a full U.S. tour this Fall. The following press release was issued about the trek:

"The most extensive American tour Earth have planned since their 1990 inception, the Seattle purveyors of the slow-motion riff will traverse the country and back on a twenty-six date run, from the last week of October until just before Thanksgiving. Along the way the quartet will take part in the massive annual Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, Texas alongside literally dozens of international artists of all genres. This will be the first U.S. tour since they hit the road in support of Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light I in 2011, the band’s set for the tour confirmed to contain a majority of the material from Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light II.

"While the band is touring in support of the Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light albums, the Earth lineup for this voyage will be the touring lineup from the band’s lauded 2008 LP The Bees Made Honey in the Lion's Skull, comprised of Steve Moore on keys and trombone, Don McGreevy on bass, Adrienne Davies on drums and founder Dylan Carlson on guitar.

"Preceding the newly announced U.S. dates, Earth also has also confirmed a full tour of New Zealand, Australia and Japan through most of September! This venture will be performed as a trio; Dylan Carlson, Adrienne Davies and Don McGreevy."

"Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light II" can still be streamed its entirety via Pitchfork.com here.
