Planning For Burial tour in support of Desideratum (2014)

Planning For Burial’s Desideratum was released last month on SF-based dark music label The Flenser.
In support of the album, Planning For Burial will kick off a U.S. tour on June 12th at Pitchfork’s Northside Showcase in Brooklyn (with Pallbearer) and eventually head west to California – check out the full tour routing below.
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.
