THOU Announce Fall Tour with MJ Guider, New Album 'Magus' Out Now

Thou hit the road in support of their highly acclaimed new album 'Magus', and three new EPs all released over Summer 2018. MJ Guider joins them as they make their way through the west coast and south midwest. Highlights include SF, LA, Austin, Seattle, Portland and more with special acoustic sets and matinee shows in select cities.

"Thou has taken existential rage and slow-moving sludge and wedded them to elegant melodies and Bryan Funck's serpentine scream. That mix, however ruthless in its display, has met with rapt response, as the Baton Rouge metal band evolves its heavy doom in steps rather than leaps...Magus is truly massive - not just in its caustic melancholy, but in how Thou examines the self as a means of transformation." NPR

"['Magus'] marks the latest tsunami in the endless storm of defeaning sound, political fury, and overwhelming prolificness that is Thou" PITCHFORK

"'Magus' is a monster...75 minutes of growling, seething, commanding murk, and it's a total must-hear if you're at all into this slow, grimy form of metal." STEREOGUM

"Listening to Thou is a transformative experience, one that conjures images of the earth's tectonic plates drifting into each other, slowly grinding continents into nothingness, creating new land masses, causing earthquakes, mud slides, tidal waves..." REVOLVER

"distorted doom, acoustic folk, anvil-heavy grunge" A.V. CLUB

"Glorious, glorious Doom" METAL INJECTION

"channeled the acidic, heavy sound of Alice In Chains and the characteristic, dissonant lead work of Kim Thayil (Soundgarden)" CVLT

"'Magus'' blend of harsh vocals and beautiful/melodic instrumentation is no less accessible than that of underground metal's current biggest Metal Band For Non-Metalheads, Deafheaven... It's heavy music, but it doesn't feel aggressive - it's more thought-provoking than headbang-inducing" BROOKLYN VEGAN
