See below for the full list of upcoming tour dates. The band will also reissue their breakthrough album On this year for the first time ever on vinyl in the U.S., to be released this October.
Altin Gün completed their first-ever U.S. tour earlier this year, which included stops at Pickathon and Outside Lands, a support slot for Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes at LA’s Greek Theater, sellout performances inBrooklyn, Seattle and Philadelphia, and sessions with KEXP and KCRW.
The group recently released their sophomore album Gece via ATO Records, which received praise from NPR,Aquarium Drunkard, MOJO, Uncut, and The Guardian. The Amsterdam-based six-member band are inspired byTurkish folk and psychedelia from the 60s & 70s, re-interpreting Anatolian rock and folk music and opening the doors between traditional Turkish folk songs and psych. The band was discovered and signed to ATO Records after an explosive performance at King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard’s Gizzfest 2018 in Melbourne, Australia.
