Seattle drone pioneers Earth have announced a short tour through the Midwest US this coming spring, their first live shows since 2012. Earth’s last album, Angels Of Darkness, Demons Of Light II was released through Southern Lord Records also in 2012.


Formed in 1989 by guitarist Dylan Carlson, Earth have signs of heavy metal deconstruction – extended, minimal, slow, and within the last 10 years or so, include hints of other genres like jazz, country and folk music. Since summer 2013, Carlson has completed a European solo tour (with drummer Rogier Smal), and Earth have opened an online store with merchandise for sale. Check it out right here.


A new Earth record is being mixed in Seattle as we speak and on the band’s Facebook page, in regards to the US tour, it says: “The first of many Earth shows this year.”

27 March 2014 – Empty Bottle – Chicago, IL
