AUTHOR & PUNISHER - Announces European Tour Dates

USA based one-man industrial metal force Author & Punisher has announced a headlining European tour throughout Europe, UK and Russia. The tour commences on 21st May in Leipzig (Germany) and ends on 8th June in Gdansk (Poland). Direct support will be provided by Sweden's Trepaningsritualen. A full list of confirmed tour dates is available below.
Author & Punisher is currently writing his sixth full-length album and Relapse Records debut. The yet-to-be titled album is planned for a late 2018 release via Relapse Records. More information will be released in the near future.
After leaving a career as mechanical engineer in Boston to focus on art and sculpture, Tristan Shone, the creator and sole artist behind Author & Punisher, moved west to pursue his MFA in Southern California. In the metal and machine shops of University of California, San Diego, Shone forged a relationship with design, sound and fabrication that ultimately yielded Author & Punisher's first music and mapped the journey away from traditional instrumentation towards custom made, precision machinery. Shone used his technical knowledge, along with his artistic background to create what Wired Magazine has hailed as his own "special brand of doom metal", using these custom "Drone Machines".
All aspects of the Author & Punisher sound begin with physical movement, limbs struggling in unison to coordinate a wall of electronic rhythm and oscillation, ultimately conditioned by an organic and loose quality absent of plastic perfection. Author & Punisher performances are a real amalgamation between man and mechanisms. They are direct, physical, heavy experiences that have amassed praise and intrigue from a wide array of audiences.
