Published Nov 19, 2014With Ben Chasny's Six Organs of Admittance set to deliver the project's next experimental effort, Hexadic, next year, the stoner-styled outfit has announced it will also be teaching crowd's about the album's "Hexadic System" on a North American tour.
As previously reported, the album lands February 17 through Drag City, while the first batch of dates supporting Hexadic start up later that week. Following a tour opener in Portland, Chasny will head up to Vancouver's Electric Owl venue on February 20.
After wrapping a quick set of West Coast dates in February, Six Organs of Admittance gets back on the road in April. This second batch of dates has Chasny making up-north appearances in Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto. You'll find all of the show info down below.
Hexadic is Six Organs' first LP release since 2012's Ascent. The new album is said to utilize a "Hexadic System" of music composition, which is apparently "designed to free sound and language from rational order and replace calculation with indeterminacy."
Sounding something like Sabbath-style stoner blues with a WWII buzz bomb subbing in for lead guitar, you'll find the first heavy preview from the set, "Wax Chance," beneath the show info.
