ALCEST announce ‘Ecailles De Lune’ anniversary tour for autumn 2023 + share video portrait

Following an extensive festival season last year and having just wrapped a South American tour, the French post black metal two-piece ALCEST have taken some time to reflect on their rich past as one of the world’s most visionary metal acts. Today, the band are proud to announce their Écailles De Lune – 10th Anniversary Tour‘, which had previously been postponed several times. ALCEST’s second studio album was released in March 2010 to widespread acclaim, and the tour will honour this milestone in their impressive discography.
2023 will finally see the band on tour celebrating Ecailles De Lune alongside their special guests The Devil’s Trade.

Neige states:
“After the success of our Bataclan show in Paris for the anniversary of Ecailles de Lune we decided to make it a proper tour all over Europe. We can’t wait to play this album for you in its entirety plus selected tracks from all our other albums!
We are really excited to announce this anniversary Ecailles de Lune tour in Europe along with The Devil’s Trade. We can’t wait to play for you the songs of this album, which is very special to us, as well as others from the rest of our discography.”

Together with the announcement, ALCEST have shared a video portrait, lifting the veil to give fans a deeper insight into the band’s thoughts and motivations. You can find the video here:

For principal songwriter and frontman NeigeALCEST has always been a gateway to the otherworldly, a means of exploring his spirituality. An elemental two-piece, completed by long-serving drummer and creative confidante WinterhalterALCEST seem to dip their toes in a multitude of musical genres without ever quite fitting in. “In the metal scene ALCEST is a weird band, in the indie/post-rock scene ALCEST is a weird band- we never quite fit in,” Neige reflects. “This is how I feel in life, always an outsider; It’s not a problem, it’s just the way it is.”
The band released their last album Spiritual Instinct in October 2019, a soul-gripping masterpiece whose successor is already in the making.
