Black Moth Super Rainbow to don the masks again with tour
Mask-happy indie electronic experimentalists Black Moth Super Rainbow have announced a fall North American tour to coincide with the October 6 release of their latest album Cobra Juicy via their own Rad Cult label. The Pittsburgh-based band prefer not to be photographed or perform live without having their identities somehow obscured; frontman Tobacco has been known to sing entire sets while hidden behind the drum riser. Via their current Kickstarter campaign (which has nearly doubled its initial $45,000 goal), they're letting fans in on the fun: a limited-edition latex mask of the lovably grotesque citrus-faced monster from the album cover, with a removable "tooth" that's a USB plug containing the entire album, is one of the pledge options.
The tour will begin October 27 in Savannah, GA, at the Graveface Fest, celebrating BMSR's former label Graveface Records and its local record shop, both run by BMSR bassist Ryan Graveface. The first leg will end November 10 in Millvale, PA, with a second run of shows beginning December 3 in Boston and ending December 8 on Washington DC. Tour dates were announced this morning to the band's mailing list and will be available soon at their website.
In the meantime, check out the album's first single "Windshield Smasher" below.
