Here is Some More News on Agalloch’s New EP Plus A Tour Announcement

To be more accurate the EP news and tour news are tied together. Back in March I mentioned that Oregon’s gloomy blackened doomy folksters were releasing a new EP entitled ‘Faustian Echoes’. Details were vague on release date at the time and it appears there is a calculated reason for that. You see, Agalloch is going on tour in support of it but here is the catch: You can only pick up the new EP in physical format while they are on tour and then mail order afterwords. All I know is that I need to try and make this show. Here are the dates after the jump and the press quote from the band.

Joining us for main support will be TAURUS (featuring Stevie Floyd of DARK CASTLE & Ashley Spungin ex-PURPLE RHINESTONE EAGLE). We are excited by their experimental and challenging music and feel they are a perfect fit for us:

This tour will mark the release of our recently recorded EP “Faustian Echoes” on both LP and CD. We have taken great care in the design of this release. Sometime before the tour we will have both a streaming and digital download option available. However, the LP and CD versions will only be available at the shows during the dates on the tour and will be available via mail order after the tour.

We will be adding material (both new and old) to our set list and depending on stage time we anticipate playing between 90-120 minutes. The set will rotate each night. We have carefully selected local openers whose music fits the environment of an Agalloch show. Where there are no openers selected, we will play nearly 120 minutes. We are all personal fans of the openers and encourage everyone to show up early to see them.

We will have a variety of merchandise for sale including: 2 new shirt designs, our back catalog, “The Demonstration Archive,” “Marrow of the Spirit” vinyl, a tour poster by Stevie Floyd, original photographic prints by Veleda Thorsson, and various other odds and ends.
