Published Jun 06, 2014We've known for a while now Zorch were making their way to this year's NXNE festival in Toronto, but the Austin two-piece have gone ahead and fleshed out their North American show schedule to include a few more Canadian dates.
The progelicious duo's trip kicks off next week in their hometown and will have them playing their first of five up-north appearances at an Exclaim!-sponsored NXNE showcase that also features performances from mysterious collective GOAT and Sub Pop grunge-punk revivalists Pissed Jeans. Zorch will also hit up Waterloo with Rich Aucoin and play their remaining Canadian dates in Montreal, Ottawa and Sudbury.
You'll find all of the show details down below.
Promoting both the trip and the band's 2013 full-length debut Zzoorrcchh is a new live video for the LP's "Zut Alors." The performance clip was shot in a Los Angeles studio and has drummer/vocalist/omnichordist Shmu (a.k.a. Sam Chown) and keyboardist Zac Traeger unfurling manic math rock textures, wildly oscillating synths and precious coos, giving fans an idea of what they'll see onstage this summer.
