King Woman are gearing up for a string of West Coast tour dates next weekend. In anticipation of these upcoming shows, the band unveiled a tour documentary that was filmed last summer while they were on the road with Flenser Records label mates Planning For Burial as well as Mother Room and Foie Gras. The documentary is a charming and candid one; featuring brief interviews and live footage of each band on the tour, the 9-minute piece was filmed by King Woman's Kristina Esfandiari and M.J. Bernier - watch it now on YouTube. See King Woman on the road from March 28th through April 5th and check out all tour dates below.
King Woman's recently released and critically-acclaimed Doubt EP touches on some heavy topics and allows vocalist/lyricist Kristina Esfandiari’s ingenuity to really shine; with nods to issues like religious abuse, sex, metaphysics and heartbreak as well as physical abuse and “…tough topics that weigh heavily on my heart”, she says. Recorded with engineer Patrick Hills (Tera Melos, 7 Seconds, So Stressed) at Earth Tone in Sacramento, CA earlier this year, Doubt was mixed and produced by Esfandiari herself and the four resulting tracks are more cathartic, more brooding and more hypnotic than ever before. The band wears their musical influence on their sleeve: “We love bands like Black Sabbath, OM, Neurosis and Jesu”, said Kristina, and with her lush and dramatic vocals not unlike Mazzy Star and even Beth Gibbons, King Woman has created a sound all their own.
