hours from now, Will Wiesenfeld has announced a series of tour dates throughout the United States and Canada. Going down this coming spring, the tour will take Baths all the way from Eugene to San Francisco, which sounds like a pretty boring tour on paper, seeing as those places are only about a 90 minute flight apart. Thankfully though, Wiesenfeld will also be playing Washington D.C., Atlanta, and a whole other bunch of out-of-the-way stops along the way, as Baths follows the Oregon Trail towards Northern California.

These dates will constitute the L.A. glitch pop auteur’s first proper tour of North America in over three years and will be in support of Romaplasm, his first new Baths new album in four years. Taking cues from the Romanticism movement by emphasizing emotion and individualism, Romaplasm looks to tackle the “gnawing chaos of life with a focus on beauty and the sublime.” To further quote the press release, “It’s about centering the things that are important to you, and doing so in the most honest way possible, even if that means fucking things up a bit along the way.”

Get an idea of what that all means by watching the amusing music video for Romaplasm cut “Out,” below. While down there, make sure to also check out all of the upcoming spring 2018 Baths tour dates, or else the whole first part of this post will have been a waste to write. Here’s hoping no one on tour catches dysentery, gets bitten by a rattle snake, or falls in the water while attempting to caulk the wagon and float across the river.

Romaplasm is out November 17 (a.k.a. “tomorrow”) via Anticon and can be purchased here right now (a.k.a. “today”).
