Portland, OR black/folk/doom metallers Agalloch are one of those few bands that release music on their own time that’s rewarding enough for fans to be patient enough to wait the four years it takes them between albums. With their fifth full length album, The Serpent & the Sphere, coming out on May 13, the band have announced that they’ll be touring in June. That’s even more exciting, given that they don’t really tour all that often either. The three-week tour will find them playing the midwest and east coast, as well as a handful of Canadian dates, and Lambgoat reports that they’ll be headed back to the west coast as well. Obsidian Tongue, Jex Thoth and Vex will be among those opening, and it seems like the band is getting popular enough to be pla
