The Tortoise and The Tribe
Instrumental-rock quintet Tortoise will open Sound Tribe Sector 9s Atlanta, GA performances on December 30 and 31. A homecoming for the Georgia band, STS9 promise a slew of spectacles during their New Years festivities, including an appearance by fire and dance troupe Phoenix Rising.
STS9 are currently putting the final touches on their first new studio album in four years, Artifact, which will be available shortly after the New Year. The electronica collective will appear at the AREA 51 Soundtest outside Las Vegas on October 9 & 10.
