Ballister – new records and European tour 2017

2016-12-10

Ballister hits the road in Europe in March of 2017 with two new recordings from our last European tour in March of 2015.  SLAG, a new cd coming out on Aerophonic Records (AR013) documents a live concert from London’s renowned Cafe Oto, while LOW LEVEL STINK, a limited edition vinyl LP on the Belgian label Dropa Disc, documents our Antwerp concert from one night prior.  Scroll down for upcoming dates in March.  We’ll also be touring North America in October of 2017!
