Now that Spring is considering making an appearance, although you can’t really believe that since the temperature in our own Metal Media Metropolis has dropped considerably. That being said the summer tours are manifesting in rapid succession and here is the latest scoop from the Neurosis camp. Let’s take a look.
The Press Release:
Having just returned from their tour of Japan with Converge, visionary heavy music icons NEUROSIS have announced a new North American tour for this summer, with Bell Witch and Deafkids also on the bill.
NEUROSIS’ previously-announced tour of Europe runs from July 11th through 27th with support from Yob. NEUROSIS also plays a special one-off London performance with Godflesh on July 20th.
Upon their stateside return, NEUROSIS will now head back out to the Eastern US and Southeastern Canada for a run of performances in August. The new dates, confirmed to run from August 7th through August 17th, will see the band performing in Atlanta, Carrboro, Washington, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, Boston, Montreal, Toronto, Detroit, and Chicago. On this tour, direct support will be provided by Seattle doom metal outfit Bell Witch. Opening support will be deployed by Brazilian avant/noise/industrial trio Deafkids, who NEUROSIS signed to their own Neurot Recordings. This tour marks Deafkids’ first time on North American soil.
Showing their discontent with convention from the very beginning, NEUROSIS revealed what would become an instinct for transformation in sound and scope. Over the collective’s past eleven albums and their utterly memorable live shows, NEUROSIS has invited listeners to join them on the path their music carved. Going beyond the remarkable, the band has become unforgettable. For over thirty years, NEUROSIS has relished in the unpredictable and embraced the unknown possibility of where the music could take them.
NEUROSIS’ acclaimed eleventh studio LP Fires Within Fires is available now on CD, LP, cassette, and all digital platforms through the band’s own Neurot Recordings; stream the album HERE and see all bundles and options HERE.
Watch for additional NEUROSIS tour dates to be announced in the months ahead.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve a confession to make. I’ve never, ever followed the career and music of the legendary Neurosis. With that being the case I’m going to try to be at the show in Brooklyn this August. I’ve always said that it’s never too late to find oneself following a band and I stand behind that statement each and every day when it comes to the Metal scene and the myriad of bands that make it up. What do you readers think about this tour? I’m asking those who’ve seen Neurosis over the years because its of considerable value to me. You can wax nostalgic down in the comments section. I’ll see you next time.
