It has been a busy year for Chui Wan. Welcoming two new members into the band earlier this year, as well as frontman Yan Yulong starting his own label Maybe Noise Records, the group get back together this winter for a national tour. The infusion of new talent will hopefully result in some new music by the group that brought us The Landscape the Tropics Never Had.

GriffO is a band that generally defy categorization. Based in Hangzhou, their music has raised many an eyebrow in the years since they first arrived on the scene. They combine electronic and atmospheric shades with a very significant math rock backbone to create something that feels almost extraterrestrial.

The Scottish play is possibly Shakespeare’s most famous work, and more than likely his bloodiest. Follow the medieval king as he battles with his ambitions and his guilt, both of which prove to be his undoing (spoilers).
