Aesop Rock tours for “None Shall Pass”

It’s a time-honored tradition. Take a gazillion years to make album. Release album to critical acclaim. Go on tour…a lot.

That’s the tentative plan, it seems, for Ian Bavitz, also known as Aesop Rock. Already anticipating good reviews and solid sales (for an indie record) for his first full-length album in four years, None Shall Pass, Aesop has devised a two-month itinerary of gigs that will take him across the country twice. DJ Big Wiz will back him with the trusty one-and-twos. Blockhead (who will release Uncle Tony’s Coloring Book via Ninja Tune on August 14) & DJ Signify and Rob Sonic (whose Sabatoge Gigante comes out this fall) will open most dates. Cage, indie-popsters the Octopus Project and Black Moth Super Rainbow will drop in on select gigs.

Now, the dates. And don’t forget that None Shall Pass drops via Definitive Jux on August 28.
