Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats Headed to America! Tour Dates Inside

Ester Segarra

Arguably the best band you’re not listening to, Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats are a rock enigma. Full of big poppy hooks and sludged out doom guitar, this UK four piece need to be part of your doom vernacular. Imagine taking a ten strip at Sharon Tate’s home with Satan tending bar, and you have Uncle Acid. Check out the press release:

UNCLE ACID AND THE DEADBEATS, one of the most talked about rock bands currently in existence, and an enigma in the international underground scene, released their third album Mind Control last year via Metal Blade Records/ Rise Above Records in North America. The reviews were phenomenal and UNCLE ACID AND THE DEADBEATS began to take North America by storm.  The band recently concluded a highly successful tour of Europe and the UK as well as sold out dates in New Zealand and Australia.

In support of Mind ControlUNCLE ACID played North America for the first time this May as part of the Maryland Deathfest.  After the amazing reception and breathtaking performance, UNCLE ACID AND THE DEADBEATS are set to return to North America this fall for a full North American tour.  The tour kicks off September 24th in Philadelphia, PA and runs through October 11th in Los Angeles, CA.  Danava will provide support on the tour and tickets go on sale this Friday June 27th.

UNCLE ACID commented on the upcoming tour:

“Deadbeats of North America! We’re very pleased to announce our first tour of the U.S. and Canada. It’s been a long time coming but we’re looking forward to finally destroying your minds!”

Mind Control is a concept album with a theme that makes the acts and intentions of the likes of Charles Manson and Jim Jones seem like petty crimes. What makes Mind Control scarier than most albums is that it doesn’t seem as sinister on the surface as it really is deep down, within the core of its black acid-drenched world of pain and torture.

Imagine the original Alice Cooper band jamming in a cell with early Black Sabbath and the Stooges, whilst sitting on murder charges and you may get a glimpse into their fuzzed up world of exploding tube amps and cymbal smashing mayhem. However, this enticing act of musical manipulation is merely the icing upon a very sick cake.

Recorded at the legendary Chapel Studios over an autumnal full moon using the finest western electrical technology, engineer Jim Spencer (Bert Jansch, Robert Wyatt) has captured perfectly the bands live sound of saturated fuzz, mind-bending riffs and 60’s vocal harmonies.
