Volcano Choir’s First US Tour Dates


When Volcano Choir released Unmap on Jagjaguwar in 2009, it wasn’t clear if the band would ever perform its songs on stage. Then, late last year, Volcano Choir and Collections of Colonies of Bees performed a short and extremely successful Japanese tour. Contrarede’s live footage of these performances blew our minds (watch the video for “Island, IS” above).

We are very happy to announce two Volcano Choir concerts this spring in the U.S.

03/25/11 Minneapolis, MN – Cedar Cultural Center (tickets) All Ages

03/26/11 Milwaukee, WI – Turner Hall (tickets) All Ages

Concert Footage of Volcano Choir Performing “Island, IS” in Tokyo

Pardon my French, but Good Lord! This is incredible. Contrarede filmed the band’s concert (specifically “Island, IS) at O-West.  Justin Vernon tweeted “dudes! were playing! it’s goin good!” at us yesterday, and like, yeah, dude, that is an understatement.

It looks like the boys are having a fun time in Japan. Justin has been posting photos from the tour on the blogtower.

Volcano Choir Comes To Life – Rehearses in Eau Claire for Japan Tour

Volcano Choir – “Still” from Volcano Choir on Vimeo.


Some of the questions raised when we announced the existence of Volcano Choir were “When are they going to tour?” and “How will they re-create this live?” The answers to those are 1) They will tour only in Japan, of course, and 2) With lots of practice. We received two videos of Volcano Choir rehearsal, and I’ll be damned if I don’t have a passport. The evolution of “Still” is particularly great.

For those of you who aren’t in Japan, don’t cry! Just enjoy the videos we have, and try not to drown your sorrows in Four Lokos this weekend. If you DO live in Japan, go buy these men your finest Japanese beverages.
