Third Man Records 'Audio Social Dissent' Tour
Last year, Jack White's Third Man Records released albums by Wolf Eyes, Timmy's Organism, and Video. This year, those three bands plus Regression 696 (featuring Nate Young of Wolf Eyes) will embark on Third Man's Audio Social Dissent Tour.
Third Man co-founder Ben Swank shared, "Third Man has been itching to put something together like this for years and these bands are the perfect emissaries for the mission of shaking people out of passively viewing bands in fields (hereby known as the 'Festival Gaze') and instead participating and having their heads ripped off when the sound of the streets creeps out of the sewers and into a packed out sweaty and loud venue. See these bands together in this context and it might just change a life." Read more at Pitchfork.
First leg of the tour will include Timmy’s Organism, Video and Regression 696. Wolf Eyes will then join for the second leg. Find out more about the Audio Social Dissent Tour and see the full list of tour dates here
