Tour de Force

Family Reunion: Brooklyn Metal Act Returns from Short Hiatus with Fall Tour Dates


Family 2014 Fall TourBrooklyn outfit Family have been wowing us with their innovative blend of prog metal and classic rock since 2012’s Portrait, an album that placed on multiple staffers’ year-end lists. The band spent the next year and half touring their tushies off, then took a well-deserved break to focus on album #2, which we hope is coming very soon. A pre-pro track from that new album called “Precedent” can be heard on the completely free compilation NYC Sucks: Volume 4 compilation, streamable and downloadable here. Also be sure to track 2012’s Portrait album here.

While you wait for your next dose of Family delight (if only our actual family gatherings were this metal, amirite?), peep these just-announced eastern U.S. tour dates for November. The band is going it on their own, but they’re teaming up with some incredible acts along the way: Meek is Murder, Weedeater, Lazer/Wulf, Tiger Flowers, and a string of dates with Beak and Order of the Owl. If you live anywhere near where this tour is stopping, go! You won’t be sorry.
