Mahjongg touring what will basically be the indie version of Stomp in support of new LP on K, The Long Shadow of the Paper Tiger

If anyone has ever made the statement that there can be too much drumming in a single song, well, Chicago’s tribal crew Mahjongg have made it their credo to ensure that person feels like a damn fool. Personally, I hope they continue to ride that snare and tom all through their upcoming tour and next full-length LP, The Long Shadow of the Paper Tiger, out July 20 on K Records. Everybody loves a good beat, especially when it’s surrounded by some post-punk abstractness. Which is exactly what Mahjongg has been bred to do.
