The Six Organs of Admittance intergalactic tour-smission is coming in, as the beam glides from European lands back to the pilgrim shores of America! The full throttle, metal 6OOA-ship (yes, it's a fucking fire-breathing shreddy rock band from hell, not some acoustic dirge or arty-duo. Lazy journalists, take note!) is captained by one Ben Chasny, but his crew has changed for this mission- the band has expanded to a four-piece, including Casey from Major Stars on drums and John from Magic Markers on 2nd guitar- in what will surely be a molten lava bath for your mind and body (ears first, beast). Ascent lifted off back at the end of August and we can barely keep the record in print! If you're lucky, you can snag one at the merch table on tour, along with the recently repressed Shelter From The Ash on LP, amongst other neat toys (Ascent patches for all!). Stay tuned to the Six Organs Twitter page for all the latest tour gossip - decoded messages from the Ascent team predict a heavy announcement sometime mid-tour, but who knows - these machines are unreliable.

Lest we forget, bolstering the Ascent tour are none other than time-space travelers Blues Control, supporting the flanks for most of these Eastern and Midwestern visitations! The duo have been impenetrable since their Valley Tangents sonic field first rose, having most recently left behind the Aussie-Kiwi landscape on their on-going spacewalk, and radar indicates their reserve is plentiful. Yes, Blues Control got in the ring and plan to orbit the Ascent-ship for as long as this mission requires before disembarking to pursue their own path, once again. We may never see a cosmic combo like this one for generations - where will this worm-hole of a tour land next? For full details, check the landing map below!
