Published Sep 17, 2013Toronto-via-Montreal face paint connoisseurs Yamantaka // Sonic Titan will release UZU on October 29 via Suicide Squeeze/Paper Bag, and they're promoting it by sharing a new music video and announcing a North American tour.
The currently scheduled fall outing is a relatively modest one, as it includes only seven shows and last barely more than a week. Most of the dates are in the U.S., but there's also a release day show at Montreal's Cabaret Mile End. See the itinerary below and expect more dates to be announced soon.
Scroll past the schedule to watch a video for the psych-rocking "One." The back and white visuals depict a range of dancers showing off their moves. This ranges from kids jumping around to tattooed folks shimming in front of a plain white background to a breakdancer twisting around on some sort of empty lot. The whole thing unexpectedly turns to colour in the final couple of minutes, as Yamantaka // Sonic Titan enjoy a marshmallow-feulled jam sesh by the campfire.
