The crowd at a modern day Pentagram show is interesting. People basically fall into three categories: old school fans, younger fans just discovering the band because of the documentary Last Days Here, and horror nerds who were under the impression they were coming to see The Crypt Keeper.
Assuming you fall into one of the first two groups, you will probably want to know that the band has announced a tour in support of their new album, Curious Volume (out on August 28th on Peaceville). You really should go see them, because for Liebling and company to be hustling like this in their 787th year as a band really is as close to a miracle as you’re ever gonna get.
