The tour is in support the band's stunning LP ZIA, released Summer 2017.
The world's only Hindi prog band, aswekeepsearching have given the world a unique and emotional album in ZIA. Acclaimed by Prog Magazine and Kerrang! amongst others, ZIAis lamentative, ethereal, and majestic. Mostly instrumental, partially sung in Hindi, the record is awash with pure aural beauty and deserving of its praise.
For fans of Sigur Rós, 65daysofstatic, and God Is An Astronaut, ZIA is an album that meshes the finest traditions of cathartic post-rock and Indian musical heritage. Beyond the Hindi vocals, the album incorporates tabla drums, sitars, and Indian modes to stunning effect.
A band who’ve already toured Russia (watch their tour documentary here), aswekeepsearchinghave played major festivals across India, including all the Bacardi NH7 weekenders, VH1 Supersonic, Mood Indigo, and have shared stages with Steven Wilson, Incubus, Textures, 65daysofstatic, Plini, 65daysofstatic, Tides From Nebula, and many more - a group starting to flex their collective muscles.
