The Contortionist Gear up for an Early 2015 Tour

Joey Baca and The Contortionist have announced an early-2015 North America headlining tour that will bring the band around portions of the US and Canada during the first quarter of the new year.  Kicking off at the Emerson Theater in Indianapolis, IN, on February 7th, The Contortionist will spend the following 3 weeks bringing their signature sound to 18 select cities, before closing out the trek at the Thompson House in Newport, KY, on February 28th.  A full list of tour dates can be found below.

The Contortionist will be touring behind their 2014 studio album, Language, which was released this past September courtesy of eOne/Good Fight Music.  Language features the instant-fan-favorite tracks “Language I: Intuition”, “Language II: Conspire”, and the band’s latest release, “Primordial Sound.” 

For both the recording of the new album and for the touring that comes in support of the studio effort, Pearl Artist, Joey Baca, has continually turned to his Session Studio Classic drums- finished in the stunning Vintage Copper Sparkle lacquer- and a plethora of Pearl’s highly durable 930 Series hardware.  Incredible and must-see drum-cam footage of Joey performing “Language I: Intuition”, and “Language II: Conspire”, can be found below.  More information on Joey Baca, including full kit specs, can be found here.
