Abstract metaphysical audio manipulators ZAUM will undertake some live Canadian dates in Ontario and Quebec, beginning next month (August).
Joining them at these appearances will be Sweden’s FIREBREATHER, who the band toured Europe with last year. ZAUM‘s Kyle Alexander McDonald shared the following:
“We’re floored to have FIREBREATHER join us for this Canadian tour, much of which was a makeup for the cities we missed last summer. We toured three weeks across Europe with the 3-piece Swedish stoner doom band and are very close with them both personally and also intertwined with them lore wise within ZAUM. Their lead vocalist Mattias sang a part on our last album and will be performing that live with us here in Canada for the first time. Our intentions are to head directly into the studio afterwards and finish album #3 with a 2019 release in mind.”
ZAUM‘s second and latest full-length musical chapter ‘Eidolon‘ was released in October 2016, via I HATE Records with distribution via Plastic Head/Sony Music throughout Europe and Century Media in North America. We are including a stream of it here to re-familiarize yourself.
ZAUM creates sonic maelstroms of massive doom forged by bass and drums interwoven with sitar, woodwind, string, and synth textures. Their music has the ability to transport listeners into an otherworldly plane permeated by audible mystical elements.
