Algeria’s Imarhan are excited to announce their upcoming tour of the United States, the 5-piece band’s first North American tour since opening for Kurt Vile in 2016. This spring finds Imarhan touring in support of their soon to be released new album "Temet", out on City Slang on February 23rd 2018. The dates will take them to both coasts and places in between, including shows in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, New Orleans, and a performance at the 2018 Levitation Festival in Austin, TX.
In conjunction with their tour announcement Imarhan have released the entrancing takeaway acoustic video for "Mas-abok", from independent Parisian filmmaker Vincent Moon’s upcoming documentary on the band entitled "Children of Tam". Moon followed the band for two weeks, documenting hours of music, pictures and conversations in their hometown of Tamanrasset and at neighboring mountain ranges, specifically Assekrem (Tamashek for "World’s End"), a high plateau in the Hoggar Mountains of Southern Algeria. The result is an hour-long documentary film, which serves as a portrait of the band and their hometown Tamanrasset, for which they are becoming ambassadors.
