Solids embark on European tour covering all of September27-08-2015
Solids are coming back to Europe! This duo, comprised Xavier Germain Poitras on guitar and Louis Guillemette on drums, made a big impression when they toured Europe in 2014 with their record "Blame Confusion" out on Fat Possum / Dine Alone Records. No new record there but with their urgency to let out their energy a new tour just has to be done.
This results in a headline tour through the UK, Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium, Swiss, France, Spain and Portugal. All dates on the tourposter below and via this link.
When listening to "Blame Confusion", it's hard to imagine that an album this densely packed with sound is the handiwork of just two people, but Xavier and Louis fill every possible nook and cranny on their debut album with heavy yet melodic music. Like plenty of other indie rock bands in the 2010s,
Solids take inspiration from alt-rock’s early-’90s heyday, and it’s easy to hear bits of Sonic Youth, Superchunk, and Dinosaur Jr. in their revved-up songs. At times they also resemble a lo-fi …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead.
