Skerik, the enduringly saxophonic, punk jazz iconoclast, has announced the first ever U.S. tour by his latest project, Skerik's Bandalabra. The four-piece, Seattle-based unit also includes Andy Coe on electric guitar, Evan Flory Barnes on upright bass and Dvonne Lewis on drums.
Earlier this year Bandalabra quietly released a digital exclusive debut album, Live At The Royal Room, via The Royal Potato Family, while playing a handful of shows around the West Coast.

This September, however, fans in 17 cities across the U.S. will be given a proper introduction. The tour kicks off with a performance at the Seattle music and arts festival Bumbershoot before heading to the Midwest, extending to the East Coast and wrapping in the Rocky Mountains.

"I've always been inspired by Fela Kuti and Steve Reich, which sparked the idea to start a band built around rhythmic and minimalist concepts," explains Skerik. "It's not about soloing so much as creating a polyrhythmic weave with the four instruments. Music that is danceable but also interesting to listen to."
