Debut Listed Among NPR Music’s 25 Favorite Albums Of 2015 (So Far)
Seattle doom merchants, BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH, will bring their lumbering odes to stages throughout North America next month supporting Neurosis. Slated to embark on July 31st in Lawrence, Kansas, the trek will coil its way through sixteen cities, including one headlining performance, coming to a close on August 16th in Houston, Texas. Additional support will be provided by The Body, Sumac, Iron Tongue and Pinkish Black on select dates.
Comments legendary guitarist/vocalist Tad Doyle of the journey, “Being a huge fan of what Neurosis does for so long, we are really excited that we have the honor and privilege of being support for them on this tour. It is a gift for us to be able to do this.”
BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH features Doyle, formerly of Tad and Hog Molly, bassist Peggy Doyle and drummer Dave French (The Anunnaki). The trio undraped their lead-footed, self-titled debut last February via Neurot Recordings. Captured at Robert Lang Studios and Doyle’s own Witch Ape Studio and mixed by Billy Anderson (Sleep, High On Fire, Eyehategod, Taurus, Ommadon et al), Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth splices thick, jagged riffs through chilling post-punk drumming and hulking compositions that blow soulfully hot and desolately cold, sometimes within the confines of one track and serves as Doyle’s first recorded release in nearly fifteen years.
BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH is the sound of earthly decomposition and planetary ruin; a slow, suffocating, spellbinding dance towards a looming apocalypse. Having already earned hails from fans and media globally, NPR Music recently listed the band’s debut among its 25 Favorite Albums Of 2015 (So Far) noting, “Seattle’s Tad Doyle has been at this heavy game coming on three decades now. With bands like Tad and Hog Molly, he could take a bummer riff and make it boil and hum in ways others just couldn’t. Years in the making, BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH‘s debut is a thoroughly satisfying doom metal LP that is fully awake and teeming with power.”

“The Bros.’ debut lurches to life with a lumbering, grunge-influenced tune, ‘Lava’… From here, things slow down to funeral doom pace for much of the next six tracks/35 minutes. However, the doom and darkness is shaded with some interesting melodic textures and moments of lightness that come at unexpected times and add a dynamic gravity to the material.” – Decibel
