Fresh off their recent two-pronged European tour, NEUROSIS will congregate at a one-off performance in Providence, Rhode Island this Saturday, August 24th.
This special ceremony has been arranged as part of the city-wide NecronomiCon — a four-day convention exploring the works of H.P. Lovecraft and other past and present writers as an exploration of the intersection of science and art that lays at the foundation of the “Cthulhu Mythos” genre. NEUROSIS will take the stage at Lupo’s Heartbreak Hotel to perform a massive set as part of the festivities, with support from avant/crushing solo act LUSTMORD. The early show open with the 45-minute silent film, “The Call of Cthulhu,” about the Strand Theater — now Lupo’s — and how it was Lovecraft’s favorite movie theater to attend.

Since 1985 NEUROSIS surpassed the boundaries of any genre, never ceasing to mutate and progress their songwriting and sonic delivery, and never failing to mesmerize audiences both in the studio and onstage. In 2012 the unit released their monumental tenth studio album, Honor Found In Decay, which went on to receive countless plaudits from the press on a global scale, and was positioned highly in end of year polls, as always reaffirming why NEUROSIS remains one of the most significant heavy acts in existence.
Witness an array of live footage collected over the ongoing tour cycle for Honor Found In Decay below.
“Those who prefer their epics harrowing, their atmospheres apocalyptic and their metaphorical gut punches landed squarely on the emotional solar plexus will not be disappointed.” – Decibel
“For 27 years, the members of Neurosis have demonstrated what metal can be and what it can aspire to: transcendent, cathartic, graceful, innovative.” – National Public Radio
“…officially upped the ante for all the post-metal bands who ought to be paying these guys royalties for their patent on psychedelic purgation…” – Spin
“Another spiritual journey into the very heart of mankind. Completely and utterly mind-blowing.” – Metal Hammer
“The most stunning aspects of Honor Found In Decay come from Neurosis’ grasp of dynamics…as ever, in the hands of these uncompromising sorcerers, true heaviness can be as much about the directness as disorientation, and as much about the sinister rumble as an unearthly roar. 5/5” – Terrorizer
“…doesn’t abandon the moody sprawl of the band’s last few full-lengths, but it does help restore urgency to an aesthetic that seemed in danger of growing soporific… It’s a record that proves these grizzled artisans still know how to flex their muscles.” – Pitchfork
