O’Brother Launch European/UK Tour with La Dispute on April 27
Atlanta’s O’Brother will launch their tour of Europe and the UK with La Dispute this weekend with a show in Munich, Germany.
This marks the band’s return to Europe since their appearance at Reading & Leeds in the summer of 2012 and finally get a chance to support of their sophomore full length Disillusion (Triple Crown Records) in Europe and the UK. Disillusion was released in August 2013, it was recorded with producer Mike Sapone (Brand New, Sainthood Reps, Taking Back Sunday) has continued to rack up praise from fans and critics alike:
“Genre-bending rockers O’Brother beat the sophomore slump on Disillusion, an album as complex and textured as it is loud. Think Deftones meet Radiohead meet Alice in Chains. From distorted, sludgy guitars (there’s three of them in the band!) to front man Tanner Merritt’s haunting vocals, this is an album with a beginning, middle, and end-each song building upon the last and masterfully bleeding into the next….Don’t let the name fool you; this is an album that won’t let you down.” – Revolver
“….genre-bending post-metal that is as operatic as it is destructive….
Expect this record to end up on a lot of year-end best-of lists.” – Scott Heisel,Alternative Press
“As far as I’m concerned, there really isn’t an active band that blends ethereal and skull-crushing heaviness as well as O’ Brother do. Disillusion has the spacious soundscapes of a Sigur Ros record, the nuance-laced inventiveness of a Radiohead record, the haunting melodies of a Jeff Buckley record and the head banging heaviness of Isis’ early work. And it’s all blended together tastefully and seamlessly, with a perfect dose of patience to maximize the impact of shifts in dynamics. They set the bar awfully high for themselves after they released Garden Window, and somehow they’ve manage to raise it again with Disillusion. It’s phenomenal.” – Riley Breckenridge, Thrice
O’Brother spent the bulk of last year on the road with such acts as Alice in Chains, Manchester Orchestra, Hot Water Music and The Front Bottoms and on the festival circuit with appearances at Rock on the Range and Lollapalooza.
