France’s heavy psych rock trio MARS RED SKY confirmed their European tour dates yesterday. Several dates are listed through Spring and Summer, including widely anticipated appearances at Hellfest and Download France.
MARS RED SKY are taking to the road this spring for an extensive European tour in support of their latest release. The trek is taking them to perform on the stages of major European festivals such as Hellfest Open Air 2017 and Download France. Tour dates are below, with some beautiful poster art done by Smoke Signals Studio for the MRS tour, as well as HF and DF poster information.
MARS RED SKY‘s third album “APEX III (Praise For The Burning Soul)“, released in February 2016 on Listenable Records. The band also announced the upcoming release of a new track in the form of a very limited 12’’EP. This 19-minute song will be recorded live on analog tape at La Nef in Angoulême.
The new EP will be available around mid-June of this year, via their online store and direct purchase from the band themselves at all their club and festival shows. The Mars Red Sky spaceship will follow its course through the summer dates and into the fall, for more live dates to be announced soon. In the meantime, check out the Mars Red Sky video below for their Official Short Movie “Alien Grounds” from last Fall.
