Ufomammut Announce North American Tour

ufomammut usnea tour

Italian mystical doom trio Ufomammut has announced their first ever North American tour with Usnea as support. Their new album Ecate is out March 31, 2015 in North America via Neurot Recordings.

Now more than fifteen years into their time together as Ufomammut, the band’s only prior US outings were two live shows in Los Angeles and San Francisco in 2009 in conjunction with their crushing Idolum LP. Since Idolum, the band’s popularity has grown exponentially, through the magic of their Eve LP, their signing with Neurosis‘ label, Neurot Recordings for the 2012 release of their two-part ORO LP, and their following 2013-released XV DVD through their own Supernatural Cat Records. The desire to witness the outfit crafting its psychedelic and decimating craft in the flesh has become nearly overwhelming for stateside fans, but a shift in the tides this Spring will bring a major change as the trio invades American soil for their first-ever widespread US tour in the months ahead.

Watch Ecate‘s guitars become realized with episode four here.

Catch up on the recording of the drums, bass and more with part 1, part 2 and part 3.
