It’s windy and chilly night here in New York City and yes there is even a hefty amount of rain teeming down on us as I compose this narrative and what better a setting to share the recently broadcast news about the band Electric Wizard who will be setting their sights on the USA and bringing Doom to all those interested in the tour. Check out the poster and press release below and then we can chat about it a little bit more just you and me.
The Press Release:
Here’s huge news that will delight doom fans all over the U.S. English doom haulers Electric Wizard, who are one of the biggest, if not the biggest doom band in the world, will embark on a U.S. tour in 2015. It is the first time that the band will touch down on U.S. soil to tour in 12 years. Yes, it’s been a long time since Electric Wizard have toured here, but they are decidedly worth the wait. Support will come from Satan’s Satyrs, featuring Wizard bassist Clayton Burgess. The band will tour in support of Time to Die, their 2014-released opus, which came out via Spinefarm Records and was universally praised as one of the band’s best. The tour launches March 31 in Philadelphia and runs through April 19 in Los Angeles.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: While I will admit that I am not all that up on the band based on my limited forays into the Doom Metal scene, I sure do want to welcome them to our shores when they perform at our own Webster Hall in NYC. The third show happens in our own Metal Metropolis so the arcane fires should still be very fresh in the band and guarantee us a crushing show. Fortunately, those who are also not as up on the group as they might like to be have plenty of time to indulge in their musical offerings before the tour happens. Of course I would not wait too long on getting a ticket if you have interest because the rarity of their visiting is likely to find this selling out rather quick because its only a little over a two week run of dates. What are you readers thoughts about the event? Will you be attending or passing in anticipation for something else.
