CONSTELLATION (CST RECORDS) 15th ANNIVERSARY!!!
- NOVEMBER 2012 -
Constellation is extremely pleased to announce a series of 15th Anniversary concerts that will take place in Europe this autumn. They’ll be partnering with some of their favourite venues and arts organisations to present multiple-night mini-festival events featuring a diverse cross section of artists including newer groups like Siskiyou and Elfin Saddle, long-standing roster acts like Sandro Perri, Eric Chenaux and Hangedup, as well as two of the label’s best-known bands: Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra and Do Make Say Think.
At each of the two-night events, TSMZ will close one show and DMST will close the other. Exact line ups amongst other details will be confirmed and announced later this summer, but every concert will feature at least 4 bands and sets by at least 8 different acts across the two nights.
The event at Bern’s Reitschule is unique in that it runs for a full three days, starting on Friday 16th November with the final European date of Godspeed You! Black Emperor‘s Autumn 2012 tour (a golden opportunity to see the band in a much smaller, grittier venue with some truly awesome natural room compression).
Don’t forget, check their website, for a complete run-down of the details as they currently stand, as well as to listen to the latest MP3s and videos of said artists.
GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR EUROPEAN TOUR!!!
The Godspeed behemoth keeps on rolling, as extensive touring plans for this Autumn continue to take shape. As Constellation have already announced, after hitting the Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago next week and ATP’s I’ll Be Your Mirror in New Jersey in September, the band will spend two weeks on the road in the United States. They’ve now unveiled a second leg of touring this Autumn, which will take in a sizeable chunk of continental Europe including two shows in London. The band’s final date will coincide with the first of Constellation’s 15th anniversary celebrations in Bern, Switzerland. You can check the whole tour schedule here.
Happy birthday Constellation, what a fantastic way to celebrate 15 years of bringing incredible music to the fore.
