Tortoise Announce Dates for Winter Tour

Post-rock heavyweights Tortoise are “coming out of their shell” for their first tour of the new decade! Supporting their latest release, Beacons of Ancestorship, the group aims to break fresh ground in an aging genre and continue making impossibly accessible avant-garde. With shows that typically see each member flexing their chops on at least two instruments, with six albums worth of material in the archives, there should be some surprises for both newcomers and the Tortoise faithful alike. Fellow Chicago locals Disappears will be joining them for the ride, and the final date in the Windy City will feature a performance by Robert A.A. Lowe.
