Wow, this is one fine, fine line-up. The drone metal dork brigade will be out in full force that night (myself included). I am very impressed that they managed to resist calling this "The Sonic Solar System Tour" or use any other silly, celestial references (I guess that's what dumbasses like myself are here for). Anyway, here's the official press release from Southern Lord (ht to Andrew Chapman):
SUNN O))) is pleased to unveil more US tour dates in support of their latest opus Monoliths & Dimensions.
Following their previously announced Midwestern US tour beginning next week, the band will devastate the West Coast this August. The tour kicks off in Seattle where SUNN O))) will headline two Southern Lord label showcase events. The first night will be as a duo performing the the Shoshin/GrimmRobe demos in its entirety! They will be joined by labelmates the Accüsed (this show serving as a record release show for the Accüsed album The Curse of Martha Splatterhead!). An encore Seattle performance follows the next night, this time alongside Southern Lord brethren Earth, Pelican and Eagle Twin. SUNN O))) then surges south along the coast through California and into Utah and Colorado alongside labelmates Eagle Twin and The Accüsed.
