Bell Witch have today announced a huge European tour that will run from March through to May, including stops in countries that the band has not previously performed in. The extensive run is in support of the band's most recent album, Future’s Shadow Part 1: The Clandestine Gate which was announced last April alongside an exclusive full album set at Roadburn festival in The Netherlands. The band returned to Europe in August and September for a string of dates and are now preparing for a eight week reprise. Support for the shows will come from Fvnerals, Knoll, The Keening and Thantifaxath at different points throughout the tour.

All shows on this tour will have a visual accompaniment created by photographer / director and frequent collaborator Bobby Cochran. Adding an extra layer of complexity to the live show, the visuals enhance the themes inherent to the music. A clip of Bobby's visuals can be viewed HERE.

Of their upcoming tour, Bell Witch comment:
"We are excited to return to Europe this spring. Sharing The Clandestine Gate on tour has been transcendent and we’re looking forward to performing in places both familiar and new to us.”

Future’s Shadow Part 1: The Clandestine Gate is an epic single 83-minute track -- a composition that pulses and breathes on a filmic timeframe. It constitutes the first chapter in a planned triptych of longform albums, collectively called Future's Shadow. The expansive scale of Future's Shadow gave renowned Pacific Northewestern duo Bell Witch more leeway to plumb themes that have long percolated throughout their work. The concept of eternal return -- that time doesn't end and death doesn't punctuate life, but both go on forever in an infinite loop no one can remember -- inflected the development of The Clandestine Gate after Desmond encountered the idea in Nietzche's book The Gay Science. The glacially paced films of 20th century Russian director Andrei Tarkovsky similarly supplied a framework for the movements of The Clandestine Gate and Future's Shadow as a whole. Simple actions -- carrying a candle across a room, tossing a metal nut into an overgrown field -- carry life-and-death weight, a strategy echoed in Bell Witch's suspension of minimal melodies across planetary expanses.
