Bad Luck Tour 2012

May 2nd, 2012

We are excited to announce Bad Luck’s 2012 tour dates. Feel free to follow them down the West Coast. We know we want to!
Straight from Seattle’s surging avant music scene, Bad Luck tours the West Coast this May in support of their new EP Bloodroot, which will be released on May 4th. Hot on the heals of their 2011 double-album Two, drummer Chris Icasiano and saxophonist Neil Welch have created a 22 minute sonic manifesto. Bloodroot is their most ambitious recorded piece to date, culling up the gravelly saxophone wails and deep drum beats they’ve come to be known for.  But Bad Luck continues to explore conventional and unconventional territories in their music. In Bloodroot, heavy-looped chords abruptly cut off, replaced by creaking moans, clicks and clamors. Panicked improvisations become replaced by beautiful, subtle melodies.  As one of Seattle’s most creative touring projects, Bad Luck continues to evolve with every show.
