Samavayo Announce Fall Tour and Plans for 2025


As they continue to celebrate the nearly-20-years-on reissue of 2005’s Death.March.Melodies! and look forward to a first US appearance at Planet Desert Rock Weekend in Las Vages this coming January, Berlin heavy rockers Samavayo have lined up Fall tour dates around previously announced slots at October’s Up in Smoke and Keep it Low festivals, in Switzerland and Germany, respectively. The three-piece’s most recent LP, 2022’s Pāyān (review here), remains a fitting backdrop for all of this outreach, but as they look to mark a quarter-century of the band in 2025, they’re likewise beginning the process of moving forward with new material headed toward the next work.

As they note below, they’re trying to get a week or so of West Coast shows around the Planet Desert Rock Weekend stop, and it goes without saying but I’ll say it anyway that if you can help in that regard, you should, both out of moral obligation and because the show will be cool. In the meantime, they’ll also next year issue two more tracks from the Pāyān sessions, and, well, that’s another thing to look forward to. Not sure if they’ll come together or one at a time, but either way, that’s good news and however many years from now, when Pāyān gets its own reissue, will surely enhance the picture that record paints of Samavayo in this era. Narrative, yo. No substitute for it.

Outlook 2025

2025 will be a year of celebrating our 25th Anniversary and doing some songwriting for the next album.

We won’t be touring that much in the first 3-4 months of 2025 besides our huge party “Samavayo & Friends VOL. 2” in Berlin (Gonna be great guests again!). We are looking forward to playing some cool festivals and then at the end of 2025 we will be trying to play some areas in Europe we haven’t been to before!

Also we have 2 unreleased songs from our PAYAN recording session (2022), We definitely want to release them at some point so there are some things to plan and coordinate. Most likely a thing for 2025 too.

Samavayo is:
Stephan Voland (Drums, Vocals)
Andreas Voland (Bass, Vocals)
Behrang Alavi (Vocals, Guitar)

Samavayo, “Transcend! Exceed!” live in Berlin, 11.18.23
