Acid King Announce European Tour

A fine trilogy of Desertfest appearances anchors the upcoming Acid King return to Europe this Spring, as the San Francisco mellow-heavy progenitors continue their existential victory lap following the release of the Beyond Vision LP (review here) that ended up being both my album of the year for 2023 as well as the winner of the year-end poll, garnering praise far and wide for the boldness of its synth-inclusive approach to heavy psychedelic rock, the e’er fluid riffing of Lori S., and an atmosphere that was both signature Acid King and like nothing they’d ever done before. As it been eight years since their last album, anything they did wields would’ve gotten noticed. A couple years from now, when there are not only even more bands under their influence, but specifically under the semi-electronic soundscaping warm fuzz psych drift blend of Beyond Vision, we’ll start to see the real impact of that record.

So much the radder that Acid King will be back out to hand-deliver vinyl at the merch table and give their latest outing its due from the stage. The lineup is the same as when the trio played SonicBlast (review here) last summer, so I’ll just tell you outright that whether you’ve ever seen Acid King before or not, this is an incarnation you don’t want to miss. It’s not my job to sell tickets, I don’t work for the band, or Sound of Liberation, or any of the fests or venues. I’m just some dude on the internet who thinks this might make your day better. That’s all I’ve got going on here.

Dates come from socials and were posted by the aforementioned Sound of Liberation, audio comes from the ether:
