This week, OPERATION EQUINOX 2016 gets underway, the US tour bringing Danish neofolk acts Of The Wand And The Moon and Die Weisse Rose stateside — with both acts coalescing to perform as Vril Jäger on several shows. With opening support being provided by Blood And Sun for the trek, on select dates, all three touring acts will join forces to play one another’s songs in a single set.
Presented by Annihilvs Power Electronix, and sponsored by Heathen Harvest and Earsplit PR, OPERATION EQUINOX 2016 begins tonight, Wednesday, March 23rd, in New York City, followed by shows in Pawtucket, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Chicago, before coming to a finale in Madison on April 3rd. The Williamsburg, Brooklyn event on Easter Sunday, SORT PÃ…SKE FESTIVAL, will feature all of the touring acts in addition to sets by Destroying Angel and Scout Paré-Phillips, DJ sets by Tesco Jane and Derek Rush, and more. Advance tickets for this show include a limited, silkscreened poster by Jorden Haley.
A series of interviews with the artists involved in OPERATION EQUINOX have been running at Heathen Harvest including one with its Annihilvs organizer HERE.
