Conan Announce US Tour Dates


Oh, America. You’re not even going to know what hit you, and before I get put on (another) government watch list, I’m talking about Conan‘s tone. I could tell you how long I’ve been waiting to write the words “Conan Announce US Tour Dates,” but suffice it to say, it’s been a long fucking time. The UK trio arrive on US shores a powerhouse, frontman Jon Davis running his own studio and label — Skyhammer and Black Bow Records, respectively — with new material in the works for their second album on Napalm behind last year’s destructive Blood Eagle (review here) to be recorded, presumably, later this year if they haven’t already started, longtime producer Chris Fielding now also playing bass in a revamped rhythm section that also includes drummer Rich Lewis, also of Cardiff’s Intensive Square.

And yeah, to answer your next question, I did put up these same tour dates yesterday when Samothrace announced them, but let it stand as an example of just how fucking important I think it is that Conan are coming to the States to tour that I’m using their announcement as well. They’ll be out with Samothrace and Mantar, and in addition to venerated East Coast rooms like the Saint Vitus Bar in Brooklyn and Kung Fu Necktie in Philadelphia, they’ll also appear at Psycho California and Maryland Deathfest.

Fuck yes:

CONAN Announce North American Tour

The English CONAN follows the ideals of their namesake and continue their path without compromises. The second album Blood Eagle is a Doom Drone Metal monument filled with monolithic riffs, hypnotic melodies, brutal drumming and an archaic atmosphere.
