Revered instrumental group Tortoise, will be commencing their European tour this October in support of The Catastrophist, their critically lauded album released earlier this year.
Marking their seventh full-length record on the shelf, and the first since 2009’s Beacons of Ancestorship, The Catastrophist displays the group’s continued dynamism as they venture into their third decade of existence. To celebrate, the Chicago ensemble will embark on a 20 date tour of central Europe, finishing with a show at The Dome, in Tuffnal Park London on November 15th.
