Wolves in the Throne Room Announce Fall 2017 U.S. Tour
The latest issue of Decibel Magazine just arrived in the MS Mansion inbox with an artist on the cover that threw me for a loop: Wolves in the Throne Room. Not that I don’t think they’re a fantastic band — I do — I just didn’t think of them as “big” enough to land such honors. But the more I think about it, the more my initial shock fades: WITTR have been working hard for a decade and a half now (and their first record for Southern Lord, second overall, came out in 2007) and all that hustling and grinding is starting to pay off. Congrats to these guys! To land a Decibel cover for the first time is a huge honor indeed, and it’s deserved.
Hot on the heels of their recently released new track “Born From the Serpent’s Eye” — off their forthcoming album Thrice Woven — comes a tour announcement that does quite a job of covering most corners of the U.S. in just under a month’s time. If you haven’t seen Wolves in the Throne Room live… hooooo boy, are you in for a treat! It’s an EXPERIENCE. I’ll just leave it at that. I haven’t even caught one of their shows in a solid six or seven years, so I’m sure their visual and sonic assault has only grown more powerful with time.
Pillorian, fronted by former Agalloch vocalist/guitarist John Haughm, will open the full run.
Thrice Woven comes out August 23rd on the band’s own label, Artemisia.
