I am rather happy to finally get to see these guys after I imagine over a decade of touring where they failed to come to Minnesota. Although I've only been a fan for about 7 or 8 years admittedly.
But I can suspect why they are here isn't due to the fanbase here, it has to do with with the PROMOTERS and the nauseating process of sites like Pitchfork talking about Agalloch now.
It shouldn't take that, and in fact, the crowd I fear will include more of the hipster/pitchfork quotient that I am not crazy about. But, I guess beggars can't be..you know.
Because the fact is, they have toured a bunch of times over the last few years even, playing in Nebraska of all places, and Chicago of course, but not in Minnesota. But from memory, Agalloch wasn't on Pitchfork's radar at that point.
Blech, o well. I am still looking forward to this, and it being at The Triple Rock 2 days before my birthday no less.
We are pleased to announce the confirmed first leg of our “Serpens In Culmination” US tour this summer. There is one date that is yet to be manifested but we will announce that as soon as it is confirmed. We are also working on a West coast run.
