ALTAR OF PLAGUES/VELNIAS North American Tour Dates!

I have been waiting anxiously for these dates to be announced since the guys first told me they were coming to the States. We met, partied, and bonded hard at Roadburn earlier this spring, and not only is the black metal art they create nothing short of breathtaking, they are some of the sweetest, most ridiculously fun dudes I've met in a good long time. Also,I totally have a massive crush on the drummer, but that's neither here nor there, haha! Seriously, though, they are amazing live, and the shows they've got lined up are going to rule. That's a guarantee. I'm bummed I'll miss seeing them with Fell Voices, Worm Ourobouros, Kerasphorus (goddamnit Frisco!), Lake of Blood, Coffinworm, or Thou, but at least the East Coast gets 'em with Castevet (favorites 'round these parts). I might end up tagging along for a couple dates - we'll see how our respective tours line up.

by the way, i just saw your top ten list from last year. im the one who put out that argentinum astrum tape. weve only done one release since then (for a power violence band i sing in called gravebound) but we're working on some new stuff. id be down to send you copies of whatever if you like, just let me know.
