UK doom pioneers ESOTERIC have announced their first-ever tour in North America. The tour, which starts on September 20th in Soda Springs, CA, will run for two weeks before ending on October 5th in Boston, MA. A full list of tour dates can be found below.
Esoteric recently announced a rare appearance at this year's Stella Natura Festival. The Stella Natura festival runs from September 20th through the 22nd and is located in the Sierra Nevada’s Tahoe National Forest. The festival will see Esoteric perform alongside bands like WARDRUNA, SATURNALIA TEMPLE, STARGAZER, JARBOE, LOSS, WORM OUROBOROS, and more.
Esoteric is touring in support of their latest album, Paragon Of Dissonance, which was released in November 2011. The album is streaming in it's entirety at the official Esoteric Bandcamp page
Esoteric trace their underground roots back to 1992. The Birmingham, UK-based outfit have been pushing the limits of sonic intensity for more than 20 years. From the mind-bending darkness of their 90’s double albums Epistemological Despondency and the Pernicious Enigma, to the expansive epic doom found on their new album Paragon Of Dissonance, Esoteric have never compromised their initial aim – to drown unsuspecting listeners in an oppresive ocean of distortion.
