Elder, Ruby the Hatchet and Howling Giant Announce US Tour


Start rolling up now ’cause you’ll need something to get properly in the mindset for this tour. Progressive doom crew Elder are hitting the road in May and they’re bringing heavy-psych unit Ruby the Hatchet and opener Howling Giant with them.

East Coast folk may be disappointed—the tour mostly misses the area this time around, though Elder and Ruby the Hatchet hit the region together last year—but the bands will spend plenty of time on the West Coast and in the Midwest.

Elder’s latest, Innate Passage, came at the tail end of 2022. Here’s what we had to say at the time:

“Progressive doom and heavy psych peddlers Elder have made massive leaps of growth on each record and Innate Passage is no different. Marrying technicality and progressive elements with heavy-as-hell doom and old-school psychedelia, the New England band continue to prove why they’re one of the most special in the game today.”
