Tool have tapped David Eugene Edwards' Wovenhand to open for them on several dates this summer. Here is the announcement:
Wovenhand who will be releasing their seventh studio record "The Threshingfloor" on June 22nd on Sounds Familyre Records, will return to the road in the US for a few select dates starting this Saturday, June 19th, supporting Tool.
The music of David Eugene Edwards' Wovenhand is utterly unique, dizzying those who encounter it, with turnings and lashings of shadow and light. "The Threshingfloor", their sixth release for Sounds Familyre and the follow-up to their critically acclaimed September 2008 album "Ten Stones", was co-produced by Edwards and Robert Ferbrache, and recorded in Edward's native Colorado at Studio Absinthe and Glade Park. The songs were finessed by the rumbling vibrations of Wovenhand bandmates Pascal Humbert on electric and double bass, the incisive drumming of Ordy Garrison, and by special guest Peter Eri on Hungarian shepherd's flute. These sophisticated musicians freshly illumine Edwards' considerable vocal range, formidable guitar work and masterful song craft.
On "The Threshingfloor", soundscape mimics landscape, towering and jagged like high peaks, enveloping like the star-studded dome of the sky. We are acutely aware of our own smallness, as our senses are accosted by something otherworldly.
