Alec K. Redfearn and the Eyesores Announce US and Europe Tour Dates for Late-Summer/Fall 2015

Alec K. Redfearn and the Eyesores
Announce US and Europe Tour Dates for
Late-Summer/Fall 2015


“From harsh nightmare riddles, to sweetly swooning tranced-out droning somnambulant reveries, psychedelic folk, prog-rock, old-time country, acidic cabaret, dark circus music, and sinister dream fragments … well worth investigating”
- Dream Magazine

Post-rock’s magical/”folk” surrealists, Alec K. Redfearn and the Eyesores hail from Providence, Rhode Island, the fertile home ground of horror writers H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Alan Poe and artists of all stripes. Their music captures that city’s essence, blurring lines between past and present, fiction and fact, and transcending musical genres as easily as ghosts float through walls. Composed by Redfearn, the Eyesore's music combines myriad influences - traditional eastern and western European folk music, pre-WWII French and German cabaret, circus music, early 20th century classical (Erik Satie), classical minimalism, maverick 20th century Americana (Tom Waits, Harry Partch, John Cage, Charles Ives), elements from visionary French iconoclasts (Pierre Bastien, Pascal Comelade, Albert Marcoeur), acid folk, noise, psychedelia, drone rock (Velvet Underground, Faust), and more - with a dark, primitive, intentionally rough-edged and gritty, folk-crafted sensibility. Redfearn’s songs, whether instrumental or darkly lyrical, are rhythmically entrancing, evocative and remarkably cinematic.

Be sure to see Alec K. Redfearn and the Eyesores on tour in the following weeks. Their live shows are legendary, and their 2015 tour of two continents is certain to entrance existing fans and captivate new audiences.

"Joy is abundant the minute Redfearn begins to play the accordion…exquisite song writing. ...This band plays together so well it’s scary." - Lucas Schleicher, Brainwashed
