That’s about to change with the announcement of a small U.S. tour to take place this September.The band, which Rolling Stone has called “legendary…stoner rock pioneers,” will play seven shows on this fall’s mini-tour, which manages to take the band across the entire country.
A special performance at All Tomorrow’s Parties Festival will include the band playing its classic album Sleep’s Holy Mountain in its entirety.
