Wooden Shjips announce 15-date European October & November tour

Their first European tour since 2014

The acclaimed quartet currently writing new material

“Wooden Shjips emerge from their subterranean lair to reach a deservedly wider audience.”– The Quietus

“Revels in the joy of repetition as ever, but in a noticeably sunnier, smoother fashion than before.” The Guardian

“Becoming increasingly irresistible.” – Mojo

“It’s music conceived for interior spaces but influenced by open-air ones.” – New York Times

“One of the most melodic voyages.” – Pitchfork

The acclaimed psych-rock quartet, Wooden Shjips will be sailing across the atlantic sea and returning for a 15-date European tour later this year. It will be their first tour in Europe since 2014.

Wooden Shjips’ rise to prominence from the psychedelic underground to the rock ‘n’ roll overground success they are now has been a steady sojourn. With each consecutive release, the band has found new ways of transforming heady psychedelic rock into minimalist masterpieces, bridging the gap between the woozy freeness of Les Rallizes Denudes and Crazy Horse and the tightly wound simplicity of Suicide and the Velvet Underground. This is no more apparent then on the album ‘Back to Land‘, which was released back in 2013 to critical acclaim. The band’s scope expanded to include more earthy, grounded tones, such as the acoustic guitar, yet still retaining the infectious locked-groove that the west-coast based quartet are renowned for.

Full list of live tour dates below. Wooden Shjips are currently working on new material.
