Wooden Shjips announce European Tour Dates Revered psych rock quartet Wooden Shjips make their first visit to these shores since 2014 with a clutch of UK dates in October.

Rising from the underground to become one of the most acclaimed bands to have emerged from the States in recent years, the group are a midway point between Neil Young inspired classic rock and the pulsatant minimalism of Suicide and The Velvet Underground.

Currently writing new material, the group’s most recent LP Back to Land, was issued to outstanding praise in 2013 (review) and saw the band plaiting their mesmeric grooves with a newfound emphasis on acoustic guitars.

Check out the band play album highlight These Shadows live on Seattle radio station KEXP:
