Naxatras Announce Fall European Tour Dates; Third Album Coming Soon


One more or less expects word of the arrival of the third Naxatras full-length any minute now — if not the actual arrival itself. The Greek heavy psych jammers, who also recently reissued their 2015 self-titled debut on gatefold vinyl (discussed here), entered the studio in May to record the follow-up to last year’s II (review here), and as their overarching penchant to-date has been for surprise-dropping new releases rather than delving into a cycle of hype beforehand, it wouldn’t be overly shocking to wake up one morning and find what may or may not be titled III sitting on their Bandcamp, waiting to be explored.

At very least, I wouldn’t complain about it if that happened — except for the fact that that would instantly put me behind in reviewing it. In the meantime, the three-piece just completed a mini-tour of the Balkans that rounded out July 1 at the Mount of Artan Festival (at which the photo included here was taken), and they’ve announced a previously-threatened Fall 2017 European tour presented by Total Volume that includes their prior-confirmed slot at Keep it Low 2017 in Munich. One assumes that by the time they hit the road again, the third record will be out one way or another, and hell, knowing these guys, the fourth may already be in progress, certainly then if not now.

And if not now, when?

Wait, what?

If you hate the feeling and the vibes following the end of the summer, worry not! Naxatras are planning to extend this year’s summer long enough to get you going!

Having the experience of 2 tours already, Naxatras are heading out to their biggest one to date, which includes 12 different countries, a bunch of festivals, as well as some specials including Keep it Low Festival, Smoke Over Warsaw, Soulstone Gathering etc.!

With 2 full length albums and 1 EP in their luggage, it will surely be a psychedelic/jazzy/funky/progressive/unearthly trip not to be missed!
