Old Testament, the new project helmed by Jason Simon (guitarist/vocalist/songwriter for Dead Meadow) has announced new winter tour dates. Sharing the bill on the forthcoming run will be the Shine Brothers who have members in common with Old Testament (including Nate Ryan, formerly of The Black Angels).
Musically possessed of a lysergic strain of old time American sounds and backwoods blues, Old Testament released a self-titled album recently on Xemu Records (Spindrift, Dead Meadow). Song premieres ran via media outlets Brooklyn Vegan, Tiny Mixtapes and The Obelisk. The latter outlet proclaiming the album’s tracks and instrumentation “lush sonically but humble in their intent, and Simon’s drawl works well as an alternate-reality Hank Williams.” Premieres and confirmed tour dates (with more to be added shortly) are listed below as well as band link.
