Los Angeles Dark Music Act Patriarchy to Embark on European Tour — Select Dates with Spit Mask and Void Vision

Los Angeles’ outlandish and genre-defying dark music act Patriarchy, known for their distinctive blend of goth pop, industrial, and pliable metal sounds, is set to kick off their European tour this Friday, March 22nd. The tour, which spans various countries, marks a pivotal moment for the band as it is their first since welcoming a new member to their personal band family — a baby, that is! Maybe they should call the band Matriarchy now? (Side note, besides Actually Huizenga, the only other goth musician we’ve ever seen kill it on stage while pregnant was Patricia Morrison.)

With their recent work on the album “The Unself” and its accompanying remix album “Forcefully Rearranged,” Patriarchy has been crafting a soundscape that pulls from a diverse array of influences and textures. The remix album, which deconstructs “The Unself,” features sixteen tracks that range from sampler-driven industrial bangers to modern techno to Wax Trax-era evocative pieces​​​​.

The band, led by the truly outrageous Huizenga, is taking their spectacular live performances to Europe. Known for their wild and daring shows that combine elements of sex, humor, and theater, the band never shies away from pushing boundaries and delivering over-the-top productions.

The European tour is especially noteworthy as it includes an appearance at the renowned Roadburn Festival and a special show at Lido in Berlin alongside Die Selektion. In addition to Spit Mask, the band is also thrilled to bring out Void Vision for her first shows in Europe since 2019. This will be Patriarchy’s first time playing in countries like Denmark, Hungary, Sweden, Serbia, Croatia, Slovakia, and their very first shows in the UK, featuring a long-awaited performance in London​​.

This tour also serves as a crescendo before the band takes a hiatus to craft a new album, a follow-up to their acclaimed 2022 release “The Unself.”

As this tour marks their last European excursion for some time, fans are encouraged to catch their electrifying performances live. With the tour commencing in mere days, the anticipation is palpable, not just for the music but for the “wtf did I just watch” communal experience that Patriarchy is known to offer.

Fans stateside can also catch Patriarchy live at Cruel World Festival in Pasadena on May 11th.

For tickets and details and to follow the band’s journey, fans can check out their social media pages and official website.
