This weekend, The Flenser-curated tour featuring Sannhet, King Woman, and Planning for Burial kicks off in Portland.

The label is home to a fleet of dark, introspective bands and solo acts, who often navigate experimental or even ‘arty’ waters. All three bands on this tour play music that utilizes thick distortion and its inherent textures as a medium for meditation, bands whose live shows feel like a calm evisceration. Sannhet back their heavy textures with blast beats and rapid, stop/start drum fills, while King Woman use repetitive, droning guitar riffs and crushing break downs to highlight Kristina’s raspy, almost spiritual vocals.

All three bands have been turning heads in their respective scenes, so this is a cool opportunity to catch some of the best from San Francisco, Brooklyn and New Jersey. Listen to some singles from each of the groups below, and check out this triplet when they come through the Bay on June 30th.
