Eight Bells Issues North American Tour Recap

Trance-inducing sound contortionists Eight Bells recently wrapped up a short run of live ceremonies alongside Salt Lake City sludge collective SubRosa. The eclectic trio made their way through Seattle, Vancouver, Spokane, Boise, Salt Lake City, Oakland, and San Francisco, dousing listeners with ethereal hymns of jammy, majestic panic.

Comments Melynda Jackson of the journey: “We have returned to our lives and jobs. Our excitement for upcoming tasks is evident, and we are planning a couple of local shows and weekend trips for the Summer, although our focus is on writing for a new album. We thank everyone who was supportive, and that was pretty much everyone we encountered, and we also thank SubRosa for being amazing artists and road partners.

"I don't really have any great crazy stories from the road so I will make a random list of disjointed ideas: peacocks screamed at me in Idaho way too early in the morning; there was an actual outhouse that was actually used; we visited and revisited the fact that Stevie Wonder's song ‘Part Time Lover’ has a very uncomfortable and awkward drum beat. Canadians are very nice people. Wet wipes are a touring band's best friend. People who spend 20 minutes telling you that your band is good, but just not what they would ever listen to as if their opinion matters that much and who distract you from talking with actual friends are hilarious; nothing makes napping more beautiful than the sound of tires droning on the surface of the interstate.”

Eight Bells released a debut full-length in the form of "The Captain’s Daughter" earlier this year via Seventh Rule Recordings.
