Planning For Burial readies Desideratum, tours (2014)

Planning For Burial is the product of a single wunderkind taking healthy obsessions with certain influences and filtering them through a droning, gloomy spyglass that evokes only the most concrete blues (the emotion not the music) this side of the gray waters of the Atlantic. While Planning For Burial gets lumped in with the whole wave of “bedroom recording artists” (which is where the project toiled for years until debut LP Leaving finally was released in 2010), the mastermind behind the project sets himself apart from his peers due in no small part to his background in sound.  Like labelmates Have A Nice Life, Planning For Burial’s brand of dark shoegaze/gloomgaze is hard to categorize, but it’s sound contains elements of slowcore, shoegaze, doom, drone, ’90s alt rock, ’80s goth, and black metal, while never being defined by any one of those genres.
Over the course of the last four years, Planning for Burial has been sporadically popping up in live venues (sharing the stage with a wide breadth of musical compatriots from Chelsea Wolfe to Deafheaven, while seeming out of place at none) along the east and west coasts and releasing a slew of EPs and splits on various labels.  Now, Planning for Burial is gearing up to release Desideratum on San Francisco’s Flenser Records on May 13 and the band will tour the US in support of it.  Check out all dates listed below.
