After releasing their breakthrough album Aesthethica in 2011, transcendent black metal band band Liturgy had some internal problems and went from a quartet to a duo of guitarist/vocalist Hunter Hunt-Hendrix and guitarist Bernard Gann, who have since been touring with electronic backing, sans drums and bass. But now, the band has announced that drummer Greg Fox (now of like a billion other bands, including GDFX) and bassist Tyler Dusenbury will be rejoining Hunt-Hendrix and Gann for a few American tour dates, including one in Brooklyn in August.
It’s unclear if the lineup is permanent, but given that Liturgy has already announced that they’re working on a follow-up to Aesthethica, scheduled now for 2015, all signs point to “maybe.” In addition to these new full-band dates and the new album, Liturgy is also scheduled to reissue their out-of-print 2009 debut, Renihilation, which will be out August 26 on Thrill Jockey Records.
