Bigelf Join Progressive Nation Tour

bigelf_progressivenationJust heard today from my peeps that Bigelf have been added to the second incarnation of the Progressive Nation tour with headliners Zappa Plays Zappa & the legendary Dream Theater!

Of course, you realize this is partly my doing.  Yep, ’tis true.  Back in February when I saw the band, I told lead vocalist – keyboardist Damon Fox that he and the boys would be HUGE within a year – to which he replied “I hope so” with a smile.  Now it would seem they are poised to prove once again not only the Reverend’s most excellent taste in music but deftness with  hyperbole as well.    You heard it here first, faithful readers.

Below is an excerpt from the rather lengthy press release issued by none other than Mike Portnoy (of Dream Theater, dummy).

Congrats Damon, Ace, Duffy & Froth!

Los Angeles’ Bigelf are my personal favorite new band to come along in many years…their latest CD “Cheat The Gallows” is my favorite album of the year and I already had positioned them onto the European run of Progressive Nation in the Fall….with them now joining us on PN09 in North America as well, it looks like world domination is now not that far out of reach for them!
Pretty soon, everyone will hopefully be falling for their retro, psychedelic, progressive, hard rock, doom metal as hard as I have!
