Lightning Bolt Announces North American Tour

    Rhode Island-based noisemakers Lightning Bolt have been quiet on the album front of late—their last full-length release was Earthly Delights back in 2009. But the duo is best seen live, where the untamed fury of their music can really be let off the leash. So Brian Chippendale and Brian Gibson are heading out for a North American tour in the late summer and fall, where the sweat will drip from the ceiling and the blood will run from your ears. Stops along the way include an appearance at the FYF Fest in Los Angeles.
