UK Doom Metal Outfit CONAN have returned to North America; kicking off their next tour supporting the mighty Black Label Society. The tour begins tonight (April 24th) in Denver, CO and runs through May 23rd in Los Angeles, CA.
“We’re excited to destroy on this tour with Black Label Society and The Atomic Bitchwax, and thank you to all involved for asking us along. We’re excited to play some cities that we’ve not yet seen, and of course see some friends that we already know, additionally, we are particularly excited for our first hash browns of the summer,” says frontman Jon Davis.
CONAN have also confirmed additional North American tour dates for June and July alongside Witchkiss. These dates start June 23rd in Frederick, MD and wrap up July 6th in Rapid City, ND.
If troglodytes could have gotten their paws on a Fuzzthrone or other fuzz pedals…they would have probably bashed each others skulls in. CONAN, on the other hand, use these beautiful tools to wrench the maximum out of their legendary Caveman Battle Doom.
The British trio presents a tar monster named “Existential Void Guardian” that seems even more menacing as soon as it gets high on its own down tuned groove frenzy. Two years after the remarkable “Revengeance,” CONAN once more leave us baffled with a previously unknown side to dual vocal sludge, painful melody splinters and the true beauty that lies in dissonance, and it always will.
