EARTH – 2011 American Tour & Festival Update

(Dylan Carlson/guitarist & founding member)

American Drone heroes EARTH yesterday completed their five-week European tour with support from Sabbath Assembly, the successful venture coming to a smashing close in Brugge, Holland.

EARTH are now headed back to Washington to rest up for a few weeks, and prepare for the next leg of their Angels Of Darkness, Demos Of Light 1 Tour. Embarking in early June, EARTH will perform for twelve cities throughout the Midwest and Northeast U.S., bringing Ô Paon along for the ride.

The band will not sit around long after, as EARTH are currently plotting upcoming West Coast and Southeast U.S. tours for the Summer months, which will be announced in the coming weeks.

Other confirmed American festival appearances for EARTH in the months ahead include What The Heck? Fest, in their home state of Washington this July, joined by Liturgy, Mount Eerie, Ô Paon, Thrones and many more. EARTH are also confirmed to perform at Hopscotch Music Festival, in Raleigh, North Carolina alongside The Flaming Lips, Swans, Rhys Chatham and countless other acts. In October, EARTH will return to the East Coast where they’ve been invited to take part in I’ll Be Your Mirror, curated by Portishead & ATP America, appearing at the massive festival with Swans, Mogwai, Shellac and dozens more.
