Liturgy To Play Dante’s With Lightning Bolt

Brooklyn’s own Liturgy, a band described by frontman Hunter Hunt-Hendrix as “transcendental black metal”, is a tough band to crack open for a lot of people. On the band’s first two albums, 2009’s Renihilation and 2011’s Aesthethica, the band made a conscious effort to work within the confines of black metal, while subtly trying to make it their own. This can be polarizing, and off-putting for some people, but for others, it’s truly exhilarating.

Three years after Aesthetica – as well as the near-implosion of the band following the departure of drummer Greg Fox and bassist Tyler Dusenbury, both now back with the band – Liturgy are back with The Ark Work (out now on Thrill Jockey), the band’s most expansive and genre-bending effort yet. To support the record, the band are about to embark on a massive tour of North America and Europe, which includes dates with fellow Brooklynites Sannhet and Baltimore’s Horse Lords, and, for a fantastic string of dates on the west coast, noise rock giants Lightning Bolt. You can catch Liturgy and Lightning Bolt at Dante’s on April 29th, and find tickets right here. Don’t sleep on this one, dear reader.

After the jump, you can listen to “Quetzalcoatl” from The Ark Work, and check out all of Liturgy’s upcoming dates.
