Southern rock outfit BASK, whose Americana sound contains a unique blend of psych and prog influences, will kick off their June U.S. tour tomorrow, May 31, at Doomed and Stoned Fest in Chicago, IL. From there, the band will make their way down south and will wrap things up on June 15 in Greenville, SC. The full itinerary along with ticket links can be found below.

Moreover, BASK have just completed recording their third studio album with legendary producer Matt Bayles (PEARL JAM, MASTODON, MINUS THE BEAR, etc.) The record will be released by Season of Mist, making it the band’s debut to the label.

Speaking about the upcoming effort and working with Bayles, the band comments: “We are beyond excited to announce that we’ve begun work on our third record, and label debut, for Season of Mist Records at Echo Mountain Studios. We hope working in a studio that’s played host to an amazing eclectic roster, such as Band of Horses, Widespread Panic and War on Drugs, and the skill of veteran producer/engineer Matt Bayles, who’s credits include seminal works from Mastodon, Isis and Russian Circles, will capture the spirit and shape of our latest batch of songs. We can’t wait to share them with you.”

Hailing from the Asheville, NC, BASK was fully conceived in the fall of 2013 when guitarist Ray Worth, drummer Scott Middleton, bassist Jesse Van Note, and guitarist/vocalist Zeb Camp joined forces.

Since their inception, BASK has toured the world over on the backs of two well received full lengths, alongside artists such as HIGH ON FIRE and WEEDEATER, as well as PALLBEARER, ROYAL THUNDER, and labelmates BLACK TUSK. The band has also shared billing with a wide-cast net of diverse artists, from GUIDED BY VOICES, to CARCASS, REFUSED, and more, performing at festivals such as Desert Fest Berlin and London, Speedfest in Eindhoven, Netherlands, and Heavy Mountain in Asheville, NC.

Their sound has been described as progressive and cinematic, containing glimpses of Appalachian tonality and heartfelt heaviness. Esse Quam Videri.
