Faust Embarks on N. American Tour

Heralded as ground-breaking in their time, as well as early godfathers of Krautrock, Hamburg-based trio Faust have paved the way for many artists and producers since their 1969 inception. Now, the band will be hitting North American pavement starting September 25 for only the third time in its lengthy career. The landmark tour will take Faust to its first performances in Canada and Detroit, and will also feature workshops on the "Faust method" in many cities throughout the two-week stint. Along with two of the group's original members, the band is bringing along James Johnston (of Lydia Lunch, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds fame) and visual/video artist Geraldine Swayne to complete its stupefying live performance.
