Stearica announce UK tour


Stearica have announced a seven-date UK tour.

The Italian outfit will kick off the run of dates at The Joker in Brighton on May 22 and wrap up on May 29 at London’s Raw Power festival.

In addition, the band have released a live clip for their track Bes which featured on their second album entitled Fertile. It launched in 2015 via Monotreme Records.

The label said of the follow-up to 2007’s Oltre: “Stearica begin their creative process by freely improvising for several hours. These torrents of sound are edited into finished songs, just as receding floods leave behind fertile silt.”
