Composer and cellist Jo Quail has been added to the UK leg of the upcoming Amenra and Boris European tour.

The February shows, in Bristol, London, Norwich, Nottingham, Manchester, Glasgow and Leeds, will follow her recent dates opening for Myrkur over the past week. Speaking about the upcoming tour, Quail said:

"Supporting Amenra and Boris on the UK leg of their co-headline EU tour – WOW! I cannot wait! It is a true privilege to play these concerts. I’m a soloist and I perform my music that sits somewhere between contemporary classical, post-rock, avant garde and experimental. It is an honour to be invited to open the stage for two genre-defying bands who are masters of their craft, who have been and continue to be revolutionary in their individual approach to composition, performance and musical ethos and who reach in to the depths of being both spiritually and sonically."

Following the dates, Quail will record her new album with Chris Fielding at Skyhammer Studios in March. Listen to her 2016 record, 'Five Incantations', over at her bandcamp page.

Both Amenra and Boris released new material in the form of 'Mass VI' and 'Dear' respectively last year.

Wed February 14 2018 - BRISTOL Thekla

Amenra - Mass V (Album Review)
Tue 20 Nov 2012
Amenra have always been biblically huge in proportions, even if much of the world has yet to sit up and take notice. 'Mass V' may change that, however, as here Amenra are so colossal that they sound set to engulf the whole musical spectrum in their bleak embrace. Only four tracks long, 'Mass V' pushes Amenra’s music ever further into the depths and, as a result, becomes a record of gargantuan strength and intensity.
