Brainiac Announce North American Tour Dates

Hot on the heels of their recent Southwestern U.S. tour in Dayton, Ohio, art punk legends Brainiac have announced several more North American tour dates (dates below). Most dates include support from Exit Angles, the new, West Virginia-based quintet fronted by Jay Demko (Lincoln, Explosions In The Sky).

Brainiac spent the ’90s carving its own path directly through every typical musical trope, but just as their trajectory had poised them to present its maniacal vision of hissing electro-punk to the mainstream, the death of lead singer Timmy Taylor cut their story short. In the wake of this tragic event, many artists (such as Trent Reznor, The Mars Volta, Muse, The Flaming Lips, The National, The Breeders, Mogwai, etc.) have espoused the band’s lasting influence and relevance as trailblazers whose music still sounds fresh and ahead of its time even today.
