Published Jun 30, 2015Experimental Montreal duo Jerusalem in My Heart have announced that they'll be taking all of the audio-visual components of their forthcoming sophomore LP, If He Dies, If If If If If If, on tour in October.
The partnership of composer Radwan Ghazi Moumneh and visual artist Charles-André Coderre have a show coming up as part of this September's Pop Montreal fest, but they will officially kick off the tour a couple of weeks later in Wakefield, QC. All told, the group have 12 shows on the horizon, with the trip heading from Quebec into the U.S., back up through the Prairies and into BC. You'll find all of the show details down below.
Beneath the tour itinerary, you'll find a newly revealed stream of the set's "7ebr El 3oyoun," which delivers "mournful melismatic vocal work" and Moumneh's "hypnotically raw" buzuk playing.
As previously reported, If He Dies, If If If If If If follows 2013's Mo7it Al-Mo7it and arrives September 4 via Constellation Records. The collection is said to feature anything from "powerfully emotive vocal tunes" to "the sound of waves recorded on a beach in Lebanon."
