After debuting a second advance track from the extraordinary forthcoming album Pissing Stars, Efrim Manuel Menuck has announced a series of tour dates that will find him gracing the stages of Québec and Ontario this February. These solo shows will highlight the deeply affecting material from his latest release and serve as a special opportunity to experience this music in its most potent form: live.



06.02.18 Sainte Hyacinthe, QC Zaricot
07.02.18 Québec, QC Bar La Source Martinière
08.02.18 Montréal, QC Bar “Le Ritz” P.D.B.
09.02.08 Ottawa, ON The 27 Club
10.02.18 Toronto, ON Double Double Land


Pissing Stars is the brilliantly intense follow-up to Menuck’s 2011 solo debut Plays “High Gospel” and the first new material with Efrim as central songwriter and vocalist since 2014’s acclaimed Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light On Everything from his chamber-punk-rock band Thee Silver Mt. Zion. Menuck has developed a much-deserved cult status among fans of political punk, post-rock and avant-noise songcraft alike, and celebrates 25 years of unflinching and uncompromising sonic output with Pissing Stars, wherein he launches acerbic darts, impassioned salvos and fragile flowers into gusts of noise-battered song built around pulsing maximalist electronics and drone, composed on modular synthesizer and guitar, shot through with alternately plaintive, chilling, often processed vocals. Pissing Stars is Menuck at his most vulnerable and his most adventurous.

Pissing Stars will be out on February 2, 2018. Preorders for digital and deluxe 180g vinyl editions are now available via Bandcamp, where your preorder is accompanied by immediate download of “LxOxVx/Shelter In Place.”

The vinyl edition can also be preordered from the webshop, where you’ll find several preorder links for UK/EU indie stores we’ve partnered with to help fans in that region save on the expensive shipping costs of sending these from our Montréal warehouse.
