O’Brother are wrapping up an incredible year with the announcement of an extensive 2014 tour of Europe and the UK with La Dispute, their first European tour in support of Disillusion.
2013 kicked off with them leaving Atlanta for the winter cold of Long Island, where they spent weeks recording their sophomore album with Mike Sapone (Brand New, Public Enemy). In the spring they embarked on a Midwest run with Alice in Chains and hit America’s biggest hard rock festivals like Rock on the Range before ramping up for their first ever headlining tour which kicked off on August 1st. A few days later, O’Brother made their Lollapalooza debut and on August 20th, 2013 released their sophomore full-length Disillusion via Triple Crown Records. Disillusion was met with praise from critics and fans alike and propelled them through an incredibly successful headlining tour. Just weeks after getting home, they headed back out on the road with longtime friends Manchester Orchestra and The Front Bottoms which culminated with two performances at Manchester Orchestra’s annual The Stuffing in Atlanta.
Just this week, the band wrapped a short winter run of dates with Torche and Hot Water Music. Expect more from O’Brother in 2014 and check out the official video for “Transience” via mtvU below.

O’Brother – “Transience”
Here’s some angsty post-rock and an impressive Ernest Hemingway look-alike from Atlanta’s O’Brother.
O’Brother’s loud-as-hell brand of metally drone rock sounds similar to that of Torche or Baroness with vocals eerily resembling a less pretentious version of Muse.” – Noisey
“You know that sweet spot in the Radiohead and Melvins catalogs where they basically sound like the same band? What’s that, you say? No such sweet spot exists? Then allow me to introduce you to O’Brother.” – Magnet
“Genre-bending rockers O’Brother beat the sophomore slump on Disillusion, an album as complex and textured as it is loud. Think Deftones meet Radiohead meet Alice in Chains. From distorted, sludgy guitars (there’s three of them in the band!) to frontman Tanner Merritt’s haunting vocals, this is an album with a beginning, middle, and end—each song building upon the last and masterfully bleeding into the next…” – Revolver
“…genre-bending post-metal that is as operatic as it is destructive… Expect this record to end up on a lot of year-end best-of lists.” – Alternative Press
“…equal parts Soundgarden and Alice In Chains, a throwback thrasher that is pretty unrelenting.” – A.V. Club
