NYC noise rock trio UNSANE confirms more than a month of new North American tour dates for the fall months, as well as additional European tour dates, in support of their crushing eighth LP, Sterilize, which is set for release through Southern Lord on September 29th.
Days after the release of Sterilize, UNSANE will raid Europe on a massive tour that spans more than a month, running from October 5th through November 7th, including the new Southern Lord showcase in Amsterdam on October 29th alongside Magma, Sunn O))), Okkultokrati, Wolfbrigade, Circle, Big|Brave, and Vitamin X, after which the band returns stateside and embarks on the newly-announced North American tour. Leading with the two previously-announced Brooklyn shows on November 16th and 17th, twenty-four new shows have been announced, which sees UNSANEwinding clockwise around the country and into Canada, the tour ending December 19th in Philadelphia.
Providing support for UNSANE, Plaque Marks will join the tour from November 17th through December 10th, Child Bite will open from December 12th through 19th, and labelmates Big|Brave will support from December 12th through 16th, as well as the 18th, and 19th.
Closing a five-year gap since the 2012 release of their Wreck LP through Alternative Tentacles,UNSANE makes a vicious return with Sterilize, a record that recalls the most defining elements of the band’s seminal Scattered, Smothered, And Covered, and Occupational Hazard albums, surging with the band’s unrelenting singular sound created by guitarist/vocalist Chris Spencer, bassist/vocalist Dave Curran, and drummer Vinnie Signorelli. Sterilize showcases the group sounding as dense and damaging as ever, and sees them remaining as necessary as ever, nearly three decades since they began.
