Holy Sons (Emil Amos) joins Earth for American tour; Earth reciprocates with Emil Amos-shaped clouds

Needless to say, if you previously thought that band names weren’t a vague reflection of a band’s physical capabilities, Seattle psych-rock outfit Earth have been proving you wrong since at least the beginning of the year, when their tour(s) in support of Primitive and Deadly began and when the Earth itself suddenly began rotating faster at their extensive traveling around it. That type of geological shift doesn’t come without consequences, of course, so just recently it was announced that Emil Amos and his soul-revealing Holy Sons project will be joining Earth for a series of American shows beginning this August. Amos himself was snatched up in the venue-dotting whirlwind; the final date is, in actuality, a prediction from NOAA!

Certainly you’re familiar with Amos’s participation in the more commonly-eyed bands Grails and Om, but Holy Sons (as previously alluded to) is arguably at the heart of the now Brooklyn-based musician’s creative spirit. It preceded those bands; the album Decline of the West is a curiously faded and deep display of singer-songwriter talent, and… what’s that? Amos indicated in an interview last year the imminent arrival of at least one new Holy Sons album? Attendees will surely hear some of that.

Check out the dates below. Two members of Dommengang will have the honor of doing backing-band duties for Holy Sons.
