Neurosis announce July 2019 European tour dates with Yob

For over 30 years, Neurosis have battled against conventions and expectations, relishing in the unpredictable and embracing the unknown possibility of where the music was capable of taking them. The result was a perfectly crafted and memorable sound that is spread throughout eleven studio albums, each more distinct than the last. By now, they have become a household name when speaking about sludge and doom: there is not a single soul in the scene that hasn’t at least heard of them and many are those that have witnessed their extraordinary live shows. And a Neurosis live show in Europe is a rare sight these days as the band as a tendency to only visit select European festivals or play a handful of dates in a two-week period. This upcoming tour of which I’ll be talking about today is no different but is special nonetheless. That’s right, the legendary quintet from Oakland, California will be visiting Europe in July for a string of club shows and festival appearances in promotion of their latest record, Fires Within Fires, which was released on September 23, 2016 via Neurot Recordings. And just to make this happening all the more exciting, the band will be joined by famous Eugene, Oregon trio Yob, the current standard-bearers of the stoner/doom genre known for their incredibly crushing and mind-altering live performances. Last year, they released their eighth opus, Our Raw Heart, and since then, they have been gracing both North American and European stages with their explosive sound heavily inspired by esotericism and spirituality. There will also be a third guest on the this tour which will be announced at a later time but for now, you can check the tour schedule below:
