Providence-based duo Lightning Bolt will tour this spring, bringing its experimental noise rock madness across the US. Hitting the stage with the pair in Lightning Bolt’s first shows of 2011 will be supporting acts Wolf Eyes, Wizard Rifle and Tokyo Death March among others.



Releasing its latest album Earthly Delights in October 2009, Lightning Bolt takes its influence from a number of genres—from the primal elements of metal to punk—having previously toured with the Locust, Arab On Radar and Orchid. Throwing out two full-length albums before finally releasing Earthly Delights, the duo is always playing with sound—whether it be performing vocals live through a sock-wrapped microphone under a face mask, or using an abnormal time signature.



Lightning Bolt begins its tour in late March with a show in Albany, NY, before touring right through until the end of April, with a stop in Indio, CA for Coachella.
