Secret Chiefs 3 have switched in to high gear. Having just completed a national tour in October with legendary Italian Giallo Horror soundtrack masters, Goblin, they released their long-awaited “Book
of Souls: Folio A” album in late November. Next they are touring the west coast in February in support of that new album, and, surprise of surprises, are doing so armed with TWO new 7" records in hand. These will be available in stores stocking through Revolver USA, but those attending shows on the band’s February tour can get them right away.
In truth, Secret Chiefs 3 is always in high gear. Most people don’t realize they have played well over 300 shows in 34 countries in the last seven years.
But with a long-labored-over album in the can (you can read about it in the expanded bio), and fresh supplies of oxygen in the lungs, fresh new surprise releases are bubbling up through the Winter pseudo-frost as if it were Spring!
This tour will feature the A-team line-up of SC3 familiars: Drums / Ches Smith (Ceramic Dog), Key- boards / Matt Lebofsky (miRthkon, Moe Tar), Bass / Toby Driver (Kayo Dot), Violin, Guitar and Trum- pet / Timba Harris (Estradasphere) and Saz, Guitar and Keyboards / Trey Spruance (The
Three Doctors, Mr. Bungle). The band is extra excited to be re-united in this configuration!
