Elder, the Massachusetts-meets-Berlin rock band whose 2020 album Omens was described as “an expansive odyssey of heaviness” (Stereogum), “truly transcendent” (Decibel), and “the most gorgeous contemporary prog on the planet (Consequence), have announced their first North American tour dates since the stunning album’s release, with the trek kicking off on Aug. 3 in Brooklyn.
“For a band like Elder that normally spends about half of every year on the road, the past few years have been hard on us – but have far from broken our spirit,” offers Nick DiSalvo. “We’ve been productive, making new records and preparing for a triumphant return. Our upcoming US run has been a LONG time coming, having not been back since selected shows in 2019! We’ve been massively looking forward to both performing tracks from our last album Omens live (for the first time since its release!) alongside older tracks from the Elder universe, revamped and reworked for maximum sonic immersion. Looking forward to seeing you out there!”
Tickets for the six-week tour are on-sale now. Ruby The Hatchet opens from Aug. 3 to 17, with Bezlebong taking over the direct support slot as of Aug. 22. Dreadnought appears on all dates.
Elder is Nick DiSalvo (guitar, vocals, keyboards), Jack Donvan (bass), Michael Risberg (guitars, keyboards) and Georg Edert (drums). The New Bedford, Mass.-born band has released five full-length studio albums: Elder (2008), Dead Roots Stirring (2011), Lore (2015), Reflections of a Floating World (2017) and Omens (2020). Rolling Stone who have regularly placed the band’s albums on their year-end best of lists, describe Elder’s music as “sheer gatefold-era grandeur,” Kerrang! said the band has earned “a place amongst heavy rock royalty,” and Paste described the quartet’s music as “one of the very best heavy rock attacks on the planet.”
