New Noise is very proud to end this year with an eight date China tour for American instrumentalists Caspian presenting new work from their upcoming album. After a sold out tour in 2016, New Noise is proud to welcome back Caspian, who have cemented themselves as stand-alone leaders of progressive, engaging and thoroughly thought-provoking music. Through passionate songwriting, the band carves through the darkness and allows all to be bathed in light. Even when the band is at their heaviest, there are still feelings of peace and catharsis that hang in the air. Caspian transcend post rock norms to create some unique music that is emotive, well-written and utterly enthralling.
