Upsilon Acrux bring prog fever to the nation

    Los Angeles “brutal prog” outfit Upsilon Acrux are bringing their herky-jerky instrumental prog mastery on tour. With the ridiculously good new album Galapagos Momentum out now on Cuneiform and a brand new five-man lineup, these dudes are primed to guitar tap their way into the hearts of men all across this great nation. They’ve also got a ton of excellent bands playing with them at various times, including Cheer-Accident, Time of Orchids, Child Abuse, Hour of the Shipwreck, People and Ruins, several of which have been praised on this very web periodical.
