Chad Vangaalen 2017 North America Tour, Tickets, Dates

Canadian musician Chad VanGaalen returns to North America for a string of dates set to launch today (11/10) in Seattle at his sold out show at The Sunset. A list of dates can be found below.


VanGaalen released his latest album, Light Information, on September 8, 2017. The single “Mind Hijacker’s Curse” has been embedded below.

For an album that’s about “not feeling comfortable with really anything,” as VanGaalen says, Light Information is nonetheless a vivid, welcoming journey through future worlds and relentless memories. The rich soundscapes and sometimes jarring imagery (“I’ll be the host body, yes, for the parasitic demons. They can eat me from the inside out, I already hear them chewing.”) could only come from the mind of a creative polymath–an accomplished visual artist, animator, director, and producer, VanGaalen has scored television shows, designed puppet characters for Adult Swim, directed videos for Shabazz Palaces, Strand of Oaks, METZ, Dan Deacon, and The Head and the Heart, and produced records for Women, Alvvays, and others.
