Australian psych-rock band Pond will tour across North America this fall, with 17 new concert dates announced on Monday morning. The fall headlining trek will start on Oct. 16 at Seattle’s Neptune Theatre following their appearances at Desert Daze and Treasure Island Festivals the weekend prior. The tour will then take the Aussie rock outfit across the country through major markets like Minneapolis, Chicago and Detroit before reaching the east coast in early November, before coming to a close in Miami the weekend of Nov. 10-11 at the House of Creatives Festival.
The band also took the announcement opportunity on Monday to share a brand new single titled “Burnt Out Star,” which can be heard in the video above. At first, the eight-minute track is far from the band’s more powerful style of psych-rock, but its dreamy, ethereal makeup certainly gives it the legs to move freely throughout the listeners' consciousness like a glistening light bouncing across the music universe. The song’s tempo and sound levels shift to a more powerful gauge beginning around the 3-minute mark, as it begins to climax and take the listener into a completely different realm from which he or she initially entered. Very psychedelic indeed.
Pond released their latest studio album, The Weather, back on May 5 of last year via Marathon Artists. It was not announced on Monday whether or not “Burnt Out Star” was a stand-alone single, or if it will be part of a larger collection of new recordings.
Tickets to select shows on the tour will be going on sale starting this Friday (July 27) and can be purchased by clicking here.
