Chicago’s experimental avant-drone trio LOCRIAN have premiered another new video from their critically acclaimed new release Return To Annihilation. The clip for “Two Moons” was directed by Rosamaria Montalbano and can be viewed on YouTube here and via the official Moog website here (along with Terence Hannum’s Top 10 keyboard tracks).
LOCRIAN are also excited to announce that they will be playing their first ever European show at next year’s Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, Netherlands on Thursday April 10. Roadburn has become a leading festival in underground experimental and avant-garde music, or as they put it “any other variation of leftfield sonic pleasures that push the boundaries of music,” a description that surely suits LOCRIAN. More European dates will be announced shortly.
Formed in 2005 by André Foisy and Terence Hannum, LOCRIAN have created an extensive body of work showcasing their constant progression and quest to push the boundaries of noise and experimental music. LOCRIAN released Return to Annihilation, their Relapse full-length debut, in June which can be streamed on BandCamp or purchased on CD or 2xLP via Relapse here and on iTunes here.
