A rather considerable regret I’ve had this past month is that I didn’t get to pick up a copy of the Mos Generator/Isaak split that Heavy Psych Sounds put out in January when I saw Mos Generator open for Elder in Rhode Island (review here). Looks like I’ll get a second chance in June, when the Port Orchard, Washington, trio return to the East Coast, this time bringing Seattle’s Wounded Giant with them. Not to say I called it that the two bands would be touring together as both were sharing spots on the Eye of the Stoned Goat 5 festival to be held in Long Island on June 13, but I did.
That fest will provide the closing argument on the eight-show run, and the rumor mill has it that Mos Generator have even more touring announcements to come — word has been kicked around of a trip to Europe alongside a certain Massachusetts trio who just released one of the year’s best albums, and with whom, if that doesn’t make it clear enough, Mos already toured in the States — and given guitarist/vocalist Tony Reed‘s work ethic, I can’t imagine that’ll be the end of it. Mos Generator‘s new live album, In Concert 2007-2014, is available now to preorder from Listenable Records at the links below.
Also pay particular note to who they’re playing with each show on this tour, because there’s not one band on the list who isn’t worth showing up to see:
