An Albatross w/ Don Caballero and Ponytail!

To Play NYC and Philadelphia w/ Don Caballero and Ponytail!

The six-piece charge through layers of maniacal noise made complete with an onslaught of assaulting guitar riffs, machine gun percussion, squiggly synths, and Gieda's volatile vocal thrusts.

Every An Albatross concert stands the chance of being their last, or at least, getting shut down by the authorities. Notorious for a dangerously convulsive stage show to match their spazzy, organ-driven grindcore, the Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, sextet has had its share of run-ins with concert security men.

Each song is so chock-full of whirlwind Coney Island calliope flourishes that experiencing a little vertigo while listening is not only par for the crusty, avant-grind course—it actually makes the album more enjoyable. Decibel Magazine

On the heels of announcing their signing to New Jersey's Eyeball Records Wilkes-Barre, PA based psychedelic thrash masters, AN ALBATROSS, have announced they'll be coming back to New York City and Philadelphia to perform w/ the legendary Don Caballero, as well as hipster hype-mongers Ponytail! The shows will take place on August 22nd @ Johnny Brenda's in Philadelphia, and August 23rd @ The Knitting Factory in NYC.

The band has also recently leaked a brand new song on their Myspace page, entitled, "...And Now Emerges The Silver Pilgrim," to appear on the band's Eyeball debut, due out this Fall. Click here to listen.

More information on the band's upcoming full-length, including album title, art and tracklist coming soon. In the meantime, don't miss these shows as they will most certainly sell-out fast!
