After more than a decade of existence, five studio albums, and a slew of EPs, Helms Alee has managed to conquer new musical frontiers with each release — their forthcoming fifth LP being no different. Named for a bioluminescent marine algae that glows when excited, the Puget Sound trio’s forthcoming album Noctiluca bears a radiancy all its own.
Low Dose is a band that can take a punch. Whether we’re talking the dissolution of past projects, or the crumbling of a marriage, the quartet live with a resiliency that translates to their truculent sound. Any speculation of that fact can be laid to rest with one listen to their latest single, “Low,” which opens their forthcoming debut LP.
As the fanfare revolving around their debut LP swells, Philidelphia’s Low Dose have announced a North American tour commencing this April. Kicking off just days following the release of Low Dose (out March 29th), their live show is sure to include bows to the guitar-chugging maelstrom of ‘90s alt-rock (“For Sure”) and bone rattling elegies to love gone wrong (“Right On”). A full tour itinerary can be sound below.
