Palms Tour

June 25, 2014, Los Angeles – Palms, the Los Angeles-based band featuring three former members of the post-metal band ISIS with Deftones’ frontman Chino Moreno, return to the road for a southwestern tour in September.

The band released their self-titled debut album in 2013 with Spin describing Palms as “the slow-orbiting-rocket float of Oceanic-era ISIS painted in soft colors, now with the gushing, soaring melodies that would work on an older sibling’s mixtape next to Cure, Echo & the Bunnymen, US, or Depeche Mode” and Revolver proclaiming the album a “dreamy, swooning… masterpiece.”

September 22 Los Angeles, CA The Troubadour

Palms played their debut live shows last summer with four headlining dates on the West Coast followed by a performance at the Hollywood Bowl, as System of a Down’s hand-picked openers.

The quartet came together following the demise of ISIS, with Jeff Caxide (bass), Aaron Harris, (drums) and Clifford Meyer (keyboards/guitar) electing to continue playing music together. “After a little time Jeff, Cliff, and I decided that it was insane that we all still lived here in Los Angeles and weren’t playing together,” Harris says. “It just sort of happened naturally, probably because we have been playing together for so long, and things started to come together. But we didn’t want to be instrumental: We wanted vocals. We just weren’t exactly sure who that would be at first.” The band, knowing that Chino Moreno (Deftones) had been a fan of ISIS, thought he would be a great fit and he agreed. “A chance to work with the guys from ISIS sounded like a lot of fun,” Moreno says, “I’ve always been into the atmospheric sounds they had created with that project and felt my sense of melody would meld well with theirs.”
