Sponsored by Stardust NYC and Metal Injection, Brooklyn’s Knitting Factory will welcome the NYC / North American debut of Polish black metal occultists Batushka:
This will undoubtably be a night to remember, as Batushka performs their dark spells of mystery and awe in North America for the first time ever! Containing 8 unknown members, the band centers themselves in an obscure monastic sect of orthodox christianity known as the Schema monks. A very cryptic, death-obsessed part of christianity that has pagan roots. Beyond this, we still don’t know much about the band or the identity of the musicians involved. What I could tell you is this will be your opportunity to witness their debut masterpiece, Litourgiya, come to life for the first, and possibly only time, in the North East United States.
The BK show happens on August 15 with support from local extremists Imperial Triumphant. Get tickets HERE.
The NYC show is part of a brief round of gigs for Batushka, which also includes a headliner in Chicago at Reggies on 8/16 and an appearance at Psycho Las Vegas on 8/18.
Batushka‘s stateside invasion is in support of their 2015 debut on Witching Hour Productions, Litourgiya.
We like you, will you like us?
