North Carolina doom brigade, BLACK SKIES, who announced their US tour throughout July earlier this month have added three more confirmed dates to the trek. Those dates include June 12 at Jambalaya in Arcata, CA , June 19 at The Nightmare in Dallas, TX and July 21 at Checkpoint Charlie’s In new Orleans, LA. Updated tour itinerary below.
The band will hit the road with a new lineup, new songs and a high energy live display of sonic power they’ve built their name upon. Founding members Kevin Clark and Michelle Temple will be joined by ex-Des Ark drummer Tim Herzog. Former roommates, Kevin and Tim have remained in contact over the years and are very much looking forward to the opportunity to finally make music together. BLACK SKIES’ new material retains the heaviness of their earlier work, with more dynamic song structures and a psychedelic edge creating a more interesting overall sound. Following the tour, the band will begin preparations for recording what they hope to be their best release to date.
Says guitarist Kevin Clark of the upcoming trek: ” We’ve had our share of ups and downs over the past 12 months, but getting out west last year was without a doubt one of the better moments. We are thrilled to be heading out there again this summer, seeing the faces and places that made it such a blast. We played with a lot of great bands and met a lot of awesome souls with a true love and hunger for music. Those people are a big part of the drive for us to continue doing what we love to do, and we are eternally grateful for them.”
