Cloud Cult will be appearing at Mr Smalls next Wendsday, 11/3. They are touring behind their new album Light Chasers released in September. They have made a stop in Pittsburgh only 2 times before while being together for over 15 years.
From their press release:
With the release of Light Chasers (their 8th album in the past 15 years) this past September, Cloud Cult has returned to the indie-rock scene with what Pitchfork has called ““…Epic, millennial indie rock…”. John Richards of KEXP has also praised their latest effort, saying Light Chasers is "The best thing Cloud Cult has ever done, which is saying a lot as everything they've done so far is near perfection". The band will be heading out on tour this fall in support of Light Chasers, including a stop in their hometown of Minneapolis where they will headline First Avenue on November 17th and 18th. This comes after First Avenue honored Cloud Cult with a star on the side of their venue. Previous honors have gone to the likes of Aerosmith, Nirvana and Metallica.
