Jason Simon, frontman for heavy psych band Dead Meadow, will embark upon his first solo tour of Australia today.
The singer/guitarist released his self-titled solo debut on Tee Pee Records last year, an intimate, largely acoustic album which delved further down the pastoral roads that Dead Meadow’s albums have occasionally touched upon, but not generally become known for. With a distinctive vocal style and songwriting skills that have been receiving increasing acclaim, Simon has come into his own as a solo artist.
Dead Meadow are set to kick off a North American tour with The Black Angels and Spindrift in October; see the complete schedule here.
