Marriages have announced their first extensive tour in the U.S. this summer in support of their latest album, Salome (Sargent House). Joining them at the Denver stop for the majority of the tour will be Philadelphia’s Creepoid, who are also on the road in support of their soon to be released album, Cemetery Highrise Slum (June 23, Collect Records).  Check out all of Marriages' tour dates, spanning July 11th through August 12th in the United States, then in the UK for ArcTangent Festival in Bristol and London with Deafheaven in late August, below.

Marriages recently returned from their first ever tour in Europe this past spring, where they received rave reviews from performances at Roadburn Festival as well as the following three weeks as support to Wovenhand.  These shows followed the April 7th release of Salome, Marriages' timeless 9-song monolith of a debut LP that was hailed as "immediate, but also timeless" by Stereogum.   Propulsive, frequently iridescent, the compositions on Salome are confident and evocative, the sound of a band focusing their strengths to great effect. Throwing open the curtains on not only their sound but on their songwriting as well, members Emma Ruth Rundle, Greg Burns, and Andrew Clinco seem perfectly at ease scaling anthemic peaks and heartbreaking valleys, often in a single composition. Salome finds Marriages fully embracing their skill at crafting timeless songs with chillingly epic results.
