Thurston Moore has announced a new international tour in support of his forthcoming three-disc album Spirit Counsel. Moore will begin the tour this October in the UK, with stops in France and Germany, before coming back to the United States.

In the US, Thurston Moore will make appearances in Boston, Washington, D.C., and Chicago, with a concert in Le Poisson Rouge in New York City taking place on December 5.

According to a press statement, Spirit Counsel is a trio of instrumental pieces, placed on three separate discs. The first disk is “Alice Moki Jayne,” which is a composition paying tribute to Alice Coltrane, Moki Cherry, and Jayne Cortez. The second disk, “8 Spring Street,” is a composition in tribute to avant-garde composer Glenn Branca, and the third disk, “Galaxies (Sky),” is an orchestral arrangement featuring 12 guitars inspired by a Sun Ra poem. Spirit Counsel is set to be released on September 21 via Moore’s Daydream Library Series label.
