0 Smooth Sailing US Tour - May 2012

 After a very successful kickstarter campaign, and a delicious send-off barbecue, our beloved Smooth Sailing have a new engine for their van “The Crimson Tide” and have headed off on a month long tour across the United States. As of now, if looks like the band is going as far as Chicago, then heading back West for a string of California dates, and finally returning home for their final date of the tour in Seattle at the Comet Tavern on June 2nd. Upon returning home, the band will be working with a local theater company Blood Ensemble, to work on their heavy metal opera of sorts. The band will be scoring the music from the orchestra pit, doing about an hour or so of music, so that should be interesting to say the least. The band also plans on working on a new EP to be released at some point, which can’t come fast enough.

The band will be supported here by Princess, Grenades and Mico De Noche. Princess just had their CD release show with Wah Wah Exit Wound and White Orange at the Comet May 5th, and that will surely be available for purchase then. Grenades have finished recording their new record “Heaven is Empty” hopefully to be released sometime this fall, and Mico De Noche will no doubt bring the loud and heavy, so earplug up folks.
