Laurel Halo will go on an audio-visual tour of Europe and release a single, but she still might not invite you to her birthday party

Remember that one birthday party in middle school that all of your friends went to, but you didn’t? Maybe you couldn’t find a ride. Maybe you had to hang out with your grandparents that day. Maybe you just weren’t invited. Remember how everyone talked about it for weeks afterward, and you just sulked?

Maybe that’s how you feel if you like Laurel Halo and live anywhere other than Europe. She’s about to start a crazy AV tour across Europe that Tom Scholefield/Konx-om-pax helped her create, but she isn’t jetting back across the pond for any shows, at least not anytime this fall. And it’s a bummer, because Tom/Konx says, “I wanted to create other worldly environments filled with gravity defying plasma sculptures, beams of light shining through misty organic mutant plant life. Alongside floating metallic space station very much inspired by Moebius and Ron Cobb,” which sounds wild.

Ah well. Even if you’re stuck in an igloo somewhere in Alaska, you can still check out the tour trailer? And listen to Quarantine again (TMT Review)? We thought it was pretty damn cool.

At the very least, Laurel Halo will release a new single called “Sunlight on the Faded” sometime after the tour ends on November 21.
