SUMAC announce existence of an American West Coast, plan exploratory tour there

Seeing as how the extensive hair-conditioning and intensive collaboration regimens of Keiji Haino likely inhibit his schedule for large periods of time, it’s probably a good thing SUMAC has another 2018 album on which they can base a semi-imminent tour.

Love in Shadow came out on Thrill Jockey a little more than a month ago; and this January, folks in the western half of the US will have the opportunity to hear Aaron Turner’s latest guttural narrative at a time when “people speaking intelligibly” seems to be increasingly viewed as a net-negative for society overall! (Hell, it’s probably only a matter of time before governments around the globe start requiring everyone to speak in ancestral grunts instead of “fam” for at least a temporary amount of time. Oh well; at least sex in dorms and apartment buildings will suddenly become a lot less conspicuous!)

Anyway: so yes, SUMAC’s upcoming West Coast tour begins after the new year — and joining the PNW trio as they unintentionally dissolve your irrational optimism for 2019 are experimental guitarist Tashi Dorji (of Tashi Dorji fame) and Aussie metal duo Divide and Dissolve. Talk about a lineup worthy or your attention! (Don’t actually “talk” about it, though; it’s probably best to start practicing your grunts early.)
