THESE ARE POWERS ANNOUNCE U.S.TOUR INCLUDES DATES WITH ABE VIGODA, BIRD NAMES

These Are Powers, the Brooklyn/Chicago based trio of future primitives have announced plans for a United States tour. The dates include select performances with Abe Vigoda, Bird Names and US Girls and begin February 25 in Philadelphia Pennsylvania, wrapping on March 26 in Chapel Hill North Carolina. Touring in support of their Dead Oceans debut All Aboard Future, These Are Powers live shows are legit face melters – subsonic bass rumbles, club beats and Betty Davis swagger- are not for the wary and should not be missed. Music for tomorrows peace movement never sounded so brilliantly chaotic. Tour dates and more information below.

“Pure musical freedom allows this trio to piggyback hymnal melodies over dense noise collages, club beats and ragas. Infinitely dynamic and wildly improvisational, the sum result is no less than a new language in sound.” VILLAGE VOICE

“Guitars emulate warping sheets of metal, and drums and vocals alike sound like they’re bouncing off the walls of a cavernous abandoned warehouse.” PITCHFORK
