Kowloon Walled City to embark on first European tour

kowloon euro
Euro folks, you’ll finally get to see KOWLOON WALLED CITY. Take it from me, DO NOT miss them. From the ol’ press release:
San Francisco’s Kowloon Walled City, radical reworkers of sludge and post-hardcore, are heading out on the European highway for the very first time this August, and will be supporting atmospheric metal masters Minsk. They shall stop off at Migration Fest in Olympia, Washington, before heading to Europe for three weeks, including a performance at Porto’s esteemed Amplifest. This is an excellent chance to witness a band who over the last decade have refined their sound to a powerful zenith. Last year’s Grievances LP, released in October via Neurot Recordings, was their furthest departure from their more direct origins, honing in on sparse and more melancholic detuned heaviness.
  Vocalist/guitarist Scott Evans, together with guitarist Jon Howell, bassist Ian Miller, and drummer Jeff Fagundes spent over two years working on the seven songs for Grievances. The intense editing process weeded out about two albums’ worth of songs. Howell’s unusual chord changes and discordant aesthetic channel Unwound and Slint. Miller’s gritty bass adds a surprising layer of depth and melody, while Fagundes’ drums resonate in what sounds like an impossibly large room. Evans’ shouted vocals are raw with frustration and disappointment, but without the typical veneer of macho aggression.
  You can stream all of Grievances at their bandcamp, and view all dates announced so far below:

Fórn & Yellow Eyes tour to Migration Fest 2016

Not only do I finally get to see Fórn and Yellow Eyes, but I’ll get to see them twice.  They’re playing a series of shows on the way to Migration Fest from their homes on the East Coast. Get out to these if you can. Especially that Chicago show, say hi to me.
