Hot on the heels of an incredibly successful West Coast run of dates, Brooklyn’s very own Candiria aren’t slowing down. The band has announced a hometown show. Candiria will play the Knitting Factory in their native borough on Thursday, March 16. Moon Tooth will serve as direct support. Tickets are here.
The band will announce major summer tour plans shortly, so stay tuned.
Candiria released their new album While They Were Sleeping last October via Metal Blade Records.
Since their inception in 1992, Candiria have been lauded for their ability to mesh decidedly different styles in a seamless way. They were named one of the “10 Most Important Bands in Metal” by Rolling Stone back in 1999 for consistently releasing music that challenges listeners, thrills critics, and – most importantly – attracts a legion of dedicated, diehard fans. Their latest album, While They Were Sleeping, continues that legacy, with Pitchfork hailing the band as one of “the most convincingly flexible acts that metal and hardcore have ever seen”.
