WIFE announces world tour supporting Tri Angle debut What's Between, makes metalheads uncomfortable

Former black metal front man James Kelly a.k.a. WIFE has been keeping quite busy since Altar of Plagues immolated itself (they “broke up”) last year. In 2012, Kelly announced his dark pop-oriented project and released the Stoic EP on Throwing Snow’s left_blank imprint. Now, in support of What’s Between — his recently released debut LP for Tri Angle — WIFE is setting out on a world tour that will see him in Europe, the US, Japan, and Russia! Russia in winter sounds perfect for Kelly’s new, brooding indie style. I just watched Rocky IV this week, so I keep picturing Kelly in a snowy Siberian wasteland, training for his shows in a rapid-fire montage.

Starting in the UK, WIFE will cross the pond and play a string of dates on both American Coasts, including a spot at Seattle’s beloved Decibel Festival. From there, he’ll return to Europe for a few shows, take a break, perform a ritual sacrifice, and then: it’s Tokyo baby! I’m pretty sure the Tower Records in Shibuya will have a WIFE display and teenage boys and girls will be headbanging to his emotive bass sounds when he plays Galaxy Gingakei and Hall Shinseiki. The full list of WIFE dates can be found below, and metalheads, we promise we won’t judge you for liking it.
