Maryland’s psychedelic tour machine Darsombra has just announced their next excursion, confirming a month-long late-Spring/early-Summer tour as they complete their new album for release later this year.

Initially planned for 2020, the Darsombra duo has rescheduled their tour through the Central, Midwest, and Eastern US and Canada, encircling the Great Lakes from May 31st to June 25th. The tour includes a performance at Mutants Of The Monster Fest in Little Rock, Arkansas, running from June 1st through 4th with Yob, Cave In, Deadird, Pallbearer, Thou, -16-, and more, and a set supporting Yob and Cave In on June 8th in Darsombra’s hometown of Baltimore.

See all confirmed dates below and watch for new tour dates for later Summer and Fall to post over shortly as well.

The band writes:

“Greetings From DARSOMBRA! We’ve been hermiting in the DARSOMBRA Mothership (a.k.a. Whale Manor) here in Baltimore since November of last year, so we’ve got some really great things on the horizon for you — a North American tour and another episode of Darsombra TV. Also, keep an eye out for our new album Dumesday Book, to be released later this year!”

Watch for details on the new album to post over the months ahead.
