UZALA: Boise Psych-Doom Coven Announce November Tour

By Chris Dahlberg

Published on Sunday, October 26, 2014

Uzala has announced a new tour set to begin November 1st. They are still supporting Tales of Blood & Fire, which came out last year. If you haven’t heard this band yet, check out the full album via Bandcamp below. I had the opportunity to see them at the Autumn Screams Doom festival in Baltimore last year, and the hazier doom riffs combined with Darcy Nutt’s powerful vocals made them one of the highlights. Check out the full list of dates below, and if they’re coming your way don’t miss out!

Following the release of last year’s critically-acclaimed LP Tales of Blood & Fire and a triumphant appearance at this year’s Gilead Fest, Boise fuzz-doom peddlers UZALA will once again take their spellbinding show on the road, joined by a few very special guests. For the first leg of their upcoming November tour, the Northwestern trio will be joined by Oakland doom raiders CARDINAL WYRM before meeting up with PINKISH BLACK at No Thanks Fest and forging ahead towards home.

The Sleeping Shaman heaped praise upon the band’s last effort, saying, “All the elements that make Tales Of Blood & Fire so compelling; haunting vocals over fuzzed-out riffs and hard-hitting percussion. What more could you ask for from one of the best doom albums released this year?” Noisey also weighed in when they hosted an exclusive full-album stream: “Just because Northwestern doom band Uzala have female vocals in front does not make them anything like buzz-band Windhand. Uzala’s approach is far more sinister, going less the bluesy route and instead straight for the jugular with pained, noisy riffs beneath Darcy Nutt’s ominous voice.”

The album is now available from King of the Monsters Records here: http://kingofthemonstersrecords.bigcartel.com/

Those who prefer a more lo-fi approach can preorder the cassette version from Gypsyblood Records here: http://www.gypsybloodrecords.bigcartel.com/product/uzala-tales-of-blood-and-fire-cassette-preorder

Stay tuned for more bewitching UZALA news in the new year!
