GO SEE ALCEST & DEAFHEAVEN
Kinda-but-not-really black metal band Alcest and yeah-pretty-much black metal band Deafheaven are teaming up for a tour, and I’ve thought about it for five seconds and decided that, yes, you should all go. Alcest are really fantastic live, and while I have yet to see Deafheaven in the flesh, I did really enjoy last year’s Roads to Judah, which ended up on Kellhammer’s Top Fifteen Metal Albums of 2011 list. And Kellhammer has good taste, so, y’know. Listen to the lady.
ANYWAY, the tour itinerary is after the jump. The press release we received promised “more dates asap!!”, so don’t cry just yet if you don’t see a show near you.
And if you haven’t done so already, you should totally read this interview that our own Leyla Ford recent conducted with Alcest’s Neige. It’s rad.
