Today Oregon ethereal sound sorcerers EIGHT BELLS are pleased to announce a stretch of Spring live dates set to commence with two hometown warm-up shows next month, including a special all-ages record release show this Saturday at Backspace. The official roadside takeover will begin on April 18th at Ash Street Saloon in Portland and writhe its way through Seattle, Vancouver, Spokane, Boise, Salt Lake City, Oakland and San Francisco before coming to a ceremonial close in Eureka, California on April 27th. The band will be joined by SubRosa on select dates.
Comments Melynda Jackson of the upcoming adventures: “I am really excited to spend quality time with my friends in SubRosa and my bandmates, and spend my evenings doing what I love the most!”

EIGHT BELLS will be touring in support of their The Captain’s Daughter debut, released via Seventh Rule Recordings earlier this month. Recently dubbed, “a masterpiece that … will only get better with repeated listens,” in a recent review by Ironhops.com, adding that “the music is so complex, and there’s so much going on in terms of the song structures and the interplay of the musicians that it not only holds up to repeated listens, it demands them,” The Captain’s Daughter was engineered by sound sage Billy Anderson, and features four engulfing dreamscapes that are as tranquil as they are traumatizing.
EIGHT BELLS features within its ranks SubArachnoid Space alumni Melynda Jackson and Christopher Van Huffel. Jackson’s EIGHT BELLS continues in SAS’ tradition of heavy guitar exploration, adding a blackened dissonance and minimalist vocals to the mix. Jackson is accompanied by classically trained six-string bassist Haley Westeiner who created the centerpiece vocals on “Fate and Technology” and also provides harmonic counterpoint to Jackson’s newly discovered vocalizations. Van Huffel resumes the throne he occupied for ten years, bringing his thunderous, nuanced double kick playing with him. With this power trio, Jackson has found a group that brings focus and support to her unapologetically expressionistic experimental metal music.
The Captain’s Daughter is available now through Seventh Rule Recordings. Order your copy HERE.
