Band Touring to Celebrate Debut of Sophomore Album

It is with great disappointment to announce that Beijing Psych rock band Chui Wan have to cancel the beginning of their North American tour surrounding the release of their critically acclaimed self-titled LP, out tomorrow, May 1st, on Maybe Mars.  Unusual complications surrounding their visas have caused the cancellations. However, their visas have already been approved, and foresee this issue being resolved within the next week. The following dates have already been cancelled:
5/1: Berkeley, CA @ Starry Plough
5/2: Los Angeles, CA @ HM157
5/3: Long Beach, CA @ Alex’s Bar
5/4: Phoenix, AZ @ Crescent Ballroom

Inspired by the concept of seeking the infinite from the mundane, the core of Chui Wan’s sound is formed by the improvisational compositions of multi-instrumentalist Yan Yulong and guitarist Liu Xinyu. Their lush arrangements for guitar, keyboard, viola, other assorted instruments, and random sound samples often eschew reliable melodies and vocal harmonies in favor of occasional passages of minimal drone or maximal sonic layerings. Bassist Wu Qiong and drummer Li Zichao provide a stable ground floor from which the band can continually float away, like a sound half-heard and soon gone on a gust of wind.
