Crowbar to Celebrate 20th Anniversary of ‘Broken Glass’ With 2016 U.S. Tour
Are you drawn the the sound of broken glass!? New Orleans sludge lords Crowbar will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of their fourth album, Broken Glass, by hitting the road for a little over two weeks as they turn back to clock and turn up the volume. No details have been made available whether the Kirk Windstein led outfit will be performing the album in full, but fans can anticipate a special focus on tracks from the standout record.
The trek will begin on March 23 in Danville, Ky., head up north to Michigan then take a turn right for the Northeast before working their way down the East Coast to North Carolina. They'll wrap things up by heading to the Midwest before coming to a close in Atlanta on April 10.
Crowbar's Broken Glass is one of sludge's most heralded albums, combining a hardcore aesthetic with suffocating guitar tones, tectonic riffs and Windstein's tortured vocals across cuts like "(Can't) Turn Away From Dying," "Burn Your World" and "Like Broken Glass."
Crowbar's latest album, Symmetry in Black, was released in 2014.
