San Diego’s metal-melding heavy rockers GREAT ELECTRIC QUEST announce the rapidly approaching “Red, White ‘N Brew” U.S. Tour 2018.
The trek will launch on Sept. 27th in Las Vegas, NV and then hit a bevy of locales in the southern and mid-west United States before closing out in Tempe, AZ on Oct. 15th.
The tour is supporting the band’s latest release for Totem Cat Records, the phenomenal ‘Chapter II: Of Earth‘ (see our recent dual review [HERE]). The trek also sees GREAT ELECTRIC QUEST hitting two festivals, the Doomed & Stoned Fest in Indianapolis and Heavy Mash 2018 in Arlington, TX [Info].
Before the official tour launches, GREAT ELECTRIC QUEST will host an Album Release Show this Friday, September 14th at Pour House in Oceanside, CA. There are some enticing reasons to catch this show; one of the biggest being that everyone in attendance will receive a copy of ‘Chapter II: Of Earth‘! That is along with the fact that GREAT ELECTRIC QUEST will be live performing the album in its entirety.
The festivities also include the first-ever live performance from the duo of G.E.Q.’s Mucho Drums and Cody Tarbell (Slow Season). Plus, an incredibly well-loved Oceanside, CA. act, THE NITE CRAWLERS, will be reuniting live for the first time in awhile.
Find all the details about the Album Release Show and the upcoming tour schedule below this video trailer.
