Appalachian masters of dark psychedelia, USX (formerly U.S. Christmas), will take to the road this week for a run of shows through the Southeastern U.S. states alongside local brethren Generation Of Vipers.
The five-city run begins on Wednesday, July 17th in Asheville followed by Athens, Atlanta, Savannah, and Columbia through next weekend. The two acts are to share the stage with Sons of Tonatiuh, Across Tundras, and more throughout the trek.
Stated USX founder Nate Hall of the trek: “We are anticipating some good hot and sweaty shows with our good friends Generation of Vipers, Sons of Tonatiuh, and some cool new southern bands. We are hitting some of our favorite cities and it would be cool to see a ton of people come out. As always, we will play as loud and hard as we can. And we are LOADED with merch.”

The latest USX studio effort, the epic The Valley Path, was released via Neurot in mid-2011, the expansive album consisting of one mammoth, nearly forty-minute track of esoteric beauty, showcasing the sextet’s uneasily-classified folk and psyche-driven rock at its most expansive yet.”
