Earth announce UK tour in March 2012

1 Dec

 

The second half of the Angels of Darkness/Demons of Light is at hand and Earth are ready to unveil it on the highways and byways of the UK and EU. Rarely Unable HQ is so proud to announce the tour dates for 2012 and some further information about the new album…

Sat 3-Mar UK Bristol Arnofini Gallery

Mon 5-Mar UK Dublin Button Factory

Wed 7-Mar UK Manchester Ruby Lounge

Thu 8-Mar UK Edinburgh The Caves

Fri 9-Mar UK Leeds Brudenell Social Club

Sun 11-Mar UK London Union Chapel

Mon 12-Mar UK Brighton The Haunt

Recorded in the same two week session as produced the first part, Angels of Darkness/Demons of Light II carries on in the freely improvised/folkloric vein of the title track from the last release. Tape was rolled and spontaneous composition occurred.

The line-up again consists of Adrienne Davies on drums and percussion (on this release there is more percussion of all sorts), Lori Goldston returns on cello, and Karl Blau plays bass. This marks the first time the band on the record has toured outside of the US west coast in preparation for the album. As with the first part, it again has truly amazing artwork by Stacey Rozich (see sneak preview below).

Many have found this half more hopeful and less dark and death oriented than previous work. Song titles include ‘Sigil of Brass’, ‘His Teeth Did Brightly Shine’, ‘Multiplicity of Doors’ (A Waltz!), ‘The Corascene Dog’, and ‘The Rakehell’.

Angels Of Darkness/Demons Of Light II is ultimately a completely unanticipated direction for Earth, and a very welcome one at that.

Southern Lord will be releasing the record in February.

The next year will see much touring from earth and some startling solo endeavours from Dylan Carlson. Stay tuned for more information…
