This just blasted by my Facebook Feed and that was nice to see that the Rock was steadily moving by as opposed to asinine meme after meme for a change. The latest tour stuffs to share is this just under three week jaunt by Neurosis who will be hitting the road with support from Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth and The Body. Curious readers can check out the poster, the press statements and dates below. I will toss in a few thoughts at the close for good measure.
The Press Statement:
In less than three weeks, NEUROSIS will embark on the band’s most widespread North American tour since before the turn of the millennium. On the eve of their thirtieth anniversary, the forceful aural surge of NEUROSIS will be felt with a deluge of performances set to take place in sixteen cities across America and Canada this Summer. The genre-creating quintet will punish the continent with one of their most crushing live sets to date, beginning on July 31st in Lawrence, Kansas, followed by shows in Minneapolis, Madison, Chicago, Louisville, Detroit, Toronto, Montréal, Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, Richmond, Carrboro, Atlanta and New Orleans, before coming to a smoldering finale in Houston on August 16th, invading cities and states which they have not visited since the ‘90s along the way.
Support on this venture will be provided by a rotating, dynamic spread of acts, including nomadic doomsday cult, The Body, expansive rock duo, Sumac (members of Baptists, Old Man Gloom, ex-Isis, etc.), Pinkish Black and labelmates Iron Tongue, not to mention support from labelmates Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth (featuring Tad Doyle of TAD and Hog Molly) for the entire trek, excluding NEUROSIS’ participation in the immense Montréal Festival where they’ll join the likes of Mastodon, Meshuggah, Gorguts and many others.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Neurosis is one of those bands that I have never managed to catch for some reason and a LOT of my friends in Metal are nothing less than diehard fans so clearly I am missing out here. With the regional show hitting The Warsaw, I think I am going to do my best to be a part of it. The funny thing for me is that I have never even heard these openers nor been inside The Warsaw venue so if I go it’s a whole night of music education. What about you readers? Does this group of shows interest you at all? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
