East Sherman Release/Tour Kickoff with Déformer, Cold Blooded, Local Pavlov

When: Thu., Dec. 8, 8 p.m.-1 a.m. 2016

This year has been big for East Sherman. Already, the local metal three-piece has gone on tour twice, released multiple cassettes and played in Spokane at least a couple of times a month. Next week, the band hits even greater heights with a 7-inch EP release party, which also kicks off their third tour of the year. Guitarist Avery Strobel, who just moved to Olympia while his bandmates remain in Coeur d’Alene and Spokane, says that Desertification is the band’s most polished record yet, and their first vinyl release. The record quickly runs through three tracks full of screamin’, reverb-heavy, heart-wrenching music. Within the confines of the Observatory’s space next Thursday night, expect the volume to make your skin feel like it’s peeling while your skull quietly cracks into 100 pieces.
