Queen Elephantine announces April 2019 US Tour and new album “Gorgon”

Queen Elephantine US Tour 2019 poster
Formed in 2006 in Hong Kong and currently based in Philadelphia, USA, Queen Elephantine is the nebulous worship of a heavy mood and time. The shapeshifting post-apocalyptic rock band draws from psychedelia, doom, drone, and noise rock, as well as free jazz and sacred music from around the world.

Queen Elephantine has released five albums as well as splits with Elder, Sons of Otis, and one forthcoming with Phurpa, to date. Following their latest and critically acclaimed 2016-album, “Kala”, the Fall of 2019 will see the band release their sixth album, again with powerhouse label Argonauta Records.

Queen Elephantine describe their new record “Gorgon” as a trip through hypnotic molasses grooves. Dissonant riffs will pull you down a river of unearthly atmospheres, guided by the incantations of sardonic fakirs, unravelling their final sermon before the cosmos combusts!

Watch a first and promising teaser below.
In support of their upcoming release and to let the songs grow on stage, Queen Elephantine will debut “Gorgon” live on their upcoming Northeast USA Tour to kick off this April, and which will held 10 shows between Virginia and New Hampshire, including selected dates with It’s Not Night: It’s Space and Shadow Witch!

Says the band: “It has been a period of meditation for the band, with many personal transitions for us. We’re thrilled to return, to present the new record and play these songs live on our first tour since our run with Oxbow over a year ago”.
