Coming down from the Great White North for the first time, Toronto four-piece Biblical have announced their first extended run of tour dates in the US. They’ll join up with Death from Above 1979, who are apparently a band again, and begin in the Southeast as they hit both coasts and a couple spots in between starting on Nov. 3. Biblical‘s debut LP, Monsoon Season, made something of a splash last year when it was released, and has continued to earn the band a following since.
The PR wire has dates and details:
BIBLICAL CONFIRMED FOR DEATH FROM ABOVE 1979’s U.S. TOUR!
NEW ALBUM MONSOON SEASON OUT NOW!
Psychedelic journeymen, Biblical have been announced as direct support for Death From Above 1979 (also referred to as DFA 1979) on their forthcoming U.S. Tour. This will be the Toronto based quartet’s first extended run in support of their debut full-length, Monsoon Season.
Released earlier this year via New Damage Records (Ken Mode, USA Out Of Vietnam), Monsoon Season is conjured from equal parts fuzz-pedal/ amplifier worship and meditative passages pulled from the cosmos. The album received a deluge of critical praise from U.S. outlets.
Biblical is composed of seasoned Toronto musical vets including Nick Sewell (bass/vocals), Jay Anderson (drums), Matt Mclaren (guitarist) and Andrew Scott (guitar). Formed in the spring of 2010, their fierce and mostly improvisational performances have earned them festival and touring slots with a wide variety of artists. Some of these include hometown comrades Death From Above 1979 as well as Kyuss, The Sword, Red Fang, Danko Jones, Fucked Up and Howlin’ Rain.
Up next is an official video for the song “The Quiet Crooks” which Sewell promises to be a “creep-tastic, occult-themed affair” which was shot entirely on location in Rome, Italy by director Sean Wainsteim.
