Sometimes the stars align to allow our favorite bands to hit the road together. Such is the case for the upcoming The Atlas Moth headlining tour with Vattnet Viskar and Atriarch. We’ve been fans of The Atlas Moth for a while, and Vattnet Viskar are having a hell of a year with their explosive sophomore album Settler seeing release this week. The trio of acts are sure to play well off each other, as they are all vaguely psychedelic and influenced by doom and black metal. If you’re into the genre, this touring package is a must, and it’ll be the last time you’ll see The Atlas Moth on the road until they complete work on their new album next year.
The band offers:
We are really excited to announce our final full run of dates for The Old Believer touring cycle! This is gonna be the last time we hit MOST of these places (we always have a ace up our sleeve, if you haven’t come to notice by now.) until 2016. We will be working on a new record for everyone directly after this tour and are looking forward to hitting the road with our great friends in Vattnet Viskar & Atriarch! See everyone in August!

If this tour makes it out your way (and it seems likely, given the B markets), go hang out. I’ll be at the Asheville gig.
In other news, Vattnet Viskar have posted a “non-compressed to hell” full stream of their new record Settler for all to hear. Get a listen of one of this year’s best albums below.
