Upcoming shows - Blood Quartet
This is the first batch of shows for what is shaping up to be a busy year for us, including a short but potent UK tour, which will be my first appearance there. Looking forward to it!!
Blood Quartet was formed in early 2015 in Barcelona, after I was asked to collaborate with Catalan underground rock band Murnau B. to play at a party for Shookdown magazine to celebrate a special issue about No Wave. The encounter went so well that we decided to keep it going. The name, our own sound and a set of songs followed quite naturally.
In May 2015, after our first concerts as Blood Quartet, we released an EP, Dark Energy, on cassette and online on Bandcamp.
