Wight Announce European Tour


At the start of 2015, I included the next Wight album — whatever they decide to call it — on my list of the year’s most anticipated records. I stand by that. It’s been three years now since their second offering, Through the Woods into Deep Water (review here), came out and the sheer amount of progression the German outfit showed from their 2011 debut, Wight Weedy Wight (review here), not to mention the songwriting on its own level, has made the appeal enduring for all that time. Still, they’re due, and with the acquisition of a fourth player in the form of percussionist Steffen Kirchpfening, who joins guitarist/vocalist René Hofmann, bassist Peter-Philipp Schierhorn and Thomas Kurek, the prospect of another step forward is enticing.

I don’t know if Wight‘s third will be out before the end of 2015 — last I heard they were in the mixing stage — but they’re headed out on the road next month into Sept., and as they say, they’ve put the last album to rest in their minds, so it seems fair to expect new material to surface soon, even if just on tour.

Dates and a recent update from the band follow:

A year ago, we performed “Through The Woods Into Deep Water” live in the Odenwald (Odin’s Forest), next to our hometown. For us, that was the conclusion of the chapter “Through The Woods”. Since that time many things happened, which are impossible to “share” in social media. We wrote songs, recorded, a fourth musicians joined the band, we toured and we will play even more next month. We are looking forward to show you the new “book of Wight” soon… Paper doesn’t blush.
