Crystal Antlers --who released their second full length, Two Way Mirror in August have confirmed a string of UK dates going through various University tour towns for late September.
The band line up will feature Ikey Owens (The Mars Volta, Free Moral Agents) - who produced both Crystal Antlers offerings to date - on organ as he steps in for Cora Foxx for this tour only. The line-up is completed by Damian Edwards – percussion, Jonny Bell - vocals/bass, Andrew King – guitar and Kevin Stuart.
In early 2010, following the release of their first full-length album and the completion of nine US and European tours, Crystal Antlers finally settled down in the small Mexican farming town of La Punta Banda—it was there that the bulk of what would become Two-Way Mirror was born. After the drastic downsizing of their label, the legendary Touch and Go Records, the band was ready to take a moment and begin to bridge the gap into new territory. Beginning with their first two self-releases - Tapes Volume #1 Tentacles Era and Little Sister/Dead Horses7-inch single - following their break with TG, the band began exploring new pathways and genres, touching on elements of avant-garde pop, surf rock, 1970’s folk, and grunge. Combined with their constantly evolving experimental, punk, noise & psychedelia, and addition/influence newest band member, organist Cora Foxx, Crystal Antlers’ second full length is a sound uniquely their own.
