Ufomammut Announce North American Touring with White Hills

Aren’t you the slightest bit curious how much freakout you can handle in one evening? Well, I’d think between White Hills and Ufomammut, you’d probably be able to get a pretty good sense of your tolerance level. That’s a two-pronged attack of righteous anti-normality: Ufomammut holding down the cosmic doom low end as only masters of the form ever could hope to do, while White Hills bring forth alternate dimension space rock of the sort that, if they were from London and not New York, would already see them hailed as deities. And yeah, if you’re thinking you’d like to turn your brain into scrambled eggs like those old drug commercials, this tour might be a good way to go about it.

Be sure when you’re done that you send Nanotear Booking a thank-you card.

UFOMAMMUT’seighth LP, 8, was released in September through Neurot Recordings. Recorded at Crono Sound Factory in Vimodrone, Milano, Italy, 8 is a major turning point in the heavy alchemic arts, with the elements of UFOMAMMUT’s recording constellation being re-aligned. Although the musicians within the collective remain unturned, a change in recording approach saw the trio playing and recording live together in the same room, even utilizing their live sound engineer Ciccio and his project Femore for production purposes, with Fabrizio San Pietro on mixing duties. Overdubs were used only for vocals, synth sounds, and minor details, with the result of the endeavor being a stricter focus on the soul, darkened groove, and overall cohesion of the music and themselves as musicians. In turn, 8 clarified to UFOMAMMUT who they are as a unit now and their new sonic path.


Ufomammut, 8

    Wow that’s some brutal driving every day to get to the next show.

  2. Ricardo says:

    Damn, that is awesome. Hardly any decent acts at all stop here in Breaking Badland, aka the Burque aka ABQ. But then did 3 years ago almost to the day of this gig for the first time and it was incredible. AND sharing a bill with White Hills? Hard to believe we get a double dose of sonic bliss. Can’t wait.

    It’s awesome to see Ufomammut touring with White Hills! I’ve already shared this on my Facebook, and my friends can’t stop talking about it! I can’t imagine how many media mentions these guys must be getting for such an awesome collaboration. This is a concert I definitely can’t miss!
