SADGIQACEA: Rigorous U.S. Summer Tour Begins Next Week

With the release of their debut LP False Prism still fresh, Philadelphia-based spiritualistic sludge duo Sadgiqacea will embark on a rigorous tour of the country beginning on the 4th of July, just a week and a half away.

Sadgiqacea draws from a melting pot of influences that together presents a lush yet tension-filled sound. Their unique and intriguing debut full-length, False Prism, was recorded and produced by Chris Grigg (Woe), a forty-minute audio journey bearing four mammoth songs sparring use of overdubs to preserve the authentic recording quality of their live performances. False Prism was released via Candlelight on CD and limited edition vinyl via Anthropic Records in May.

Following sporadic, regional shows supporting the release of the record, Sadgiqacea will take on as much of the country as possible this Summer as their brutal forty-two date trek with brethren Hivelords kicks off on Independence Day. View the full tour itinerary below and watch for additional updates on the band to be posted in the coming days.

“The further one delves into the beguiling heterodoxy, rich atmospheres and intricate aural palette presented on False Prism, the more fittingly the otherworldly moniker of Philadelphia über-power-duo Sadgiqacea becomes.” – Decibel

“Sadgiqacea make no bones about their love for all things trippy and psychedelic, and those leanings color many of the spacey, serpentine riffs that make up the bulk of False Prism… They’re a sludgy doom band at heart, but are bursting with far too many ideas to allow them to fester inside any one constricting genre tag.” – Pitchfork

“The debut from Philadelphia, PA sludge-mongers Sadgiqacea contrasts a fat, wet guitar tone with crisp doom drumming and abrasive, blackened vocals… False Prism is a seething, captivating album that is out to draw blood.” – Exclaim!

“False Prism is a cut above the rest of the current sludge wave, and Sadgiqacea is a band worthy of further investigation.” – Dead Rhetoric

“The Philadelphia two-piece’s epic sludge-doom sprinkles in moments of post-rock, Neurosis-y riffage and black metal…” – Invisible Oranges

“With False Prism, Sadgiqacea show their full potential and their debut album is only the very start of what this band can achieve.” – Scene Point Blank
