[press release] O'Death, New York City's homegrown purveyors of gothic-American rust-punk, are excited to announce a spring tour in celebration of their tenth year as a band. Fitting for the anniversary, the band is getting back to it's roots by throwing extravagant shows along the North East seaboard with too many support artists on the bills. These shows are intended to serve as a reminder of attending the mini-festivals at the East Village's short lived Apocalypse Lounge nearly a decade ago, back when only the band's brothers and cousins were willing to wade through the drunken mess that was a regular O'Death performance. Full tour dates are below.
Having come a long way since the early days, these upcoming shows promise to deliver an eclectic and artful concert experience, spanning their three studio albums and various singles and EP's.
In the spirit of their mini-festivals, O'Death will be joined on stage by a range of artists that reflect their disparate influences and friendships including Wild Yaks, Amour Obscur, Hungry March Band, Trummors, Butcher Boy, and Coke Weed.
