Heads up, Oh Sees fans! The San Francisco psych-punk rockers are heading out on a North American tour this spring. Mr. Elevator will support them on the entire set of U.S. and Canadian live shows.
The 2020 North American Tour kicks off on - April 1 and 2 for a two-night run in San Francisco, California. The tour will stop in major U.S. cities including Providence (Tickets), New York (Tickets), and Philadelphia (Tickets).
Tickets go on sale to the general public on Feb. 14.
By now, Oh Sees fans know that the legendary punk rockers don’t sit still for too long. To date, they’ve released 22 studio albums under various names including OCS, The Oh Sees, Thee Oh Sees, and Oh Sees, among others. Last year alone, the band released eight music videos for tracks from their album Face Stabber, which dropped last August via Castle Face Records.
Among the album’s 14 tracks is the massive 21-minute closer called “Henchlock.” The music video plays like a mini-movie with a cacophonous mix of background sounds, closeup shots of faces, people moving in slow-motion, upside-down shots and more. These kinds of freaky visuals are right up Oh Sees psych-rock alley. In all, the double album is 79 minutes long.
The John Dwyer-fronted band followed up Face Stabber with a new 12-inch record called The 12” Synth last November.
Oh Sees will play a special benefit show at 1720 Warehouse in Los Angeles on May 9. Proceeds will support The Elizabeth House and East LA Women’s Center. After that, they’ll perform shows in the UK and Europe this spring and summer before heading to North America in September.
