Straight from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, Pontiak is the trio of brothers Jennings, Van and Lain Carney. Following extensive touring around their 2017 Thrill Jockey release Dialectic of Ignorance, the band have now announced a string of European tour dates for March 2019, including a show with labelmates Wooden Shjips.

Dialectic of Ignorance takes Pontiak’s colossal riffing into heady new territory. Live, their acid-scorched guitar workouts take on a whole new dimension. Snaking melodies and irresistible grooves erupt from the brother’s instruments like billowing plumes of psychedelic smoke, expanding to fill the space, with the Carney’s shimmering vocal harmonies providing an anchor amidst the haze.
