Wang Wen (惘闻) head to Europe
Autumn: wind-swept earthy scents blown through whipping trees alongside aching nostalgia, images that domestic post-rockers Wang Wen convey exquisitely with their cinematic soundscapes that run emotional relays from melancholy to guarded hope—and back again—multiple times within single songs.
The long-running, DIY-friendly Dalian outfit—they formed in 1999 and have released six full-length records, including this past spring’s critically-acclaimed 0.7—kick off a six-date whirlwind tour through Northern Europe next Tuesday, bringing their gorgeous, seasonal-appropriate sound to crowds in Sweden, Denmark and Belgium in support of Swedish heavyweights pg.lost and Japanese post-rock heroes MONO.
Full schedule below:
Tues, Nov 20: Stockholm, Sweden — Debaser Slussen (with MONO)
Wed, Nov 21: Norrkoping, Sweden — Lilla Teatern (with pg.lost)
Thurs, Nov 22: Gothenburg, Sweden — Truckstop Alaska (with MONO)
Fri, Nov 23: Copenhagen, Denmark — Loppen (with MONO)
Sat, Nov 24: Meerhout, Belgium — JH de Faar
Sun, Nov 25: Leuven, Belgium — STUK
Wang Wen will be returning with copies of their new split 12” with pg.lost. We’ll have more details soon.
