Desolation Wilderness Add Dates to Current US Tour, Supporting New Universe

    Desolation Wilderness embarked on tour yesterday in support of their sophomore album, New Universe. Additional West Coast dates have been added, so they’ll have little rest before they leave for a stint in the U.K.


    Vaguely wistful melodies and bell-like guitar noodling are the hallmarks of Desolation Wilderness, giving them a likeness to surf music being played underwater or, as they put it, “slow burners and warped guitar/synthesizer/vibraphone ballads influenced by drone music.” They are signed to K Records alongside more high-profile slowcore bands such as Mirah and Mount Eerie.
