Hailed by Pitchfork for their “loud, exhilarating and unhinged” live performances, New York City-based psychedelic rock duo WHITE HILLS will return to the road next month on a North American tour with Iowa-based stoner doom duo Telekinetic Yeti. The journey will commence on July 19th in Charlotte, North Carolina and run through August 29th in Minneapolis, Minnesota. See all confirmed dates below.
Rising to prominence after their performance in Jim Jarmusch’s 2014 vampire romance Only Lovers Left Alive, WHITE HILLS — featuring founding members Dave W. and Ego Sensation — have garnered a cult reputation as a fierce, genre-bending band. They stand among the most prolific bands of their generation having released twelve studio albums as well as numerous collaborations, EPs, and singles. WHITE HILLS are proponents of transformation through sound creating music that is both risky and cutting edge. Combining elements of krautrock, post-punk, psychedelic rock, metal, ambient, and experimental music, the band strikes “a riveting balance between heaviness and ethereality” [XLR8R] while being hyper-conscious of society’s constant desire for a new and better drug.
