Since forming in 1993, Stars of the Lid (one of the most apropos names in all of music) have scratched out quite a niche for themselves as one of the most influential drone/ambient music projects on Earth.
This fall, SOTL’s Adam Wiltzie & Brian McBride will be hitting the road to debut some new compositions, and some old classics with long time visual collaborator and projectionist Luke Savisky, and German lighting designer MFO.
On stage this tour will be featuring a new band. 2 new members, Bobby Donne from Kranky label mates Labradford, and Adam’s long time studio collaborator Francesco Donadello. Plus Brussels residents & A Winged Victory for the Sullen’s string ensemble, the Echo Collective & a vintage Moog 55 Modular Synthesizer.
