Playing a form of lysergic and almost entirely instrumental rock that draws its DNA from the sounds of classic Krautrock, prog, long-form improvisation and metallic heaviness, SUBARACHNOID SPACE has attracted a fervent and dedicated following over the past decade around albums on established independent labels such as Relapse Records and Strange Attractors Audio House. They’ve delivered their ominous, ethereal riffage, soaring fx-laden guitars and pulsating rhythmic propulsion on the road with numerous tours and festival appearances, including multiple stints across the U.S., three appearances at the legendary psych-rock festival Terrastock, and a tour of Japan.

SUBARACHNOID SPACE shall return with Eight Bells on September 22, 2009 via Crucial Blast [view Stephen Kasner’s stunning cover art here:]. The band’s first new release since 2005’s The Red Veil, Eight Bells is the newest chapter in their continually evolving vision of music as ecstatic ritual. In celebration of its release, SUBARACHNOID SPACE , featuring a new lineup of Daniel Barone, Melynda Jackson, Lauren K. Newman and Daniel Osborne, will embark on a full US tour beginning on September 6th at Ground Kontrol in Portland, OR. The tour will wind through 26 cities before coming full circle at the Fall Into Darkness Fest in Portland on October 29th.
