A STORM OF LIGHT To Play U.S. Dates With Today Is The Day And Sleep; European Tour To Commence This October

Brooklyn kings of atmospheric doom, A STORM OF LIGHT, are gearing up for a short stint of U.S. tour dates next week that include performances with experimental metal/noise exhibitionists Today Is The Day and reunited stoner metallers Sleep before heading to Europe for a month’s worth of shows in October. Said guitarist/vocalist John Graham of the upcoming shows: “The next couple of months are going to be a lot of fun for us. We’re lucky enough to share the stage with the legendary Sleep, brutalists Today Is the Day, and then embark on our fourth European tour. Awesome!”

A STORM OF LIGHT — guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist Josh Graham (Neurosis visuals, Blood And Time, Battle Of Mice), bassist/vocalist Domenic Seita (formerly of Tombs and Asea) and guitarist/keyboardist Joel Hamilton (Book Of Knots, Battle Of Mice) — released their second full-length, entitled Forgive Us Our Trespasses via Neurot last October.

“… gloomy and unrelenting, like staring into the abyss.”
— Rock Sound

“Forgive Us Our Trespasses remains every bit as engaging for all of its 60 minutes, and impressively, it really does linger in your thoughts long after it has finally fallen silent.” — Outburn

“Quality epic metal is quite an effort to get right and this band have done a superb job with this release.” — BlogCritics

“…the overall tone is oppressively heavy and where the shifts between ambient and crushing were predictable and unsatisfying on And We Wept the Black Ocean Within, here they’re blended together for a new brand of musical heft that sets A Storm Of Light apart from generic b-list post-metallers and shows the true potential of the band.” — The Obelisk
