Post-apocalyptic gypsy punkers NOSTALGHIA will be making first-time appearances at major outdoor music festivals this summer as well as providing support on a series of dates with Platinum rock band AFI in the Fall.  Tickets for the music festivals are on sale now; tickets for the AFI dates go on sale this Saturday, June 7.

Nostalghia just wrapped a string of shows with +++(Crosses), Deftones' Chino Moreno's side project, where they received rave reviews from press and concert-goers, with CD and merch sales increasing exponentially at every show.  Not bad for a band that 95% of the audiences had never heard of beforehand.

"Moreno is always on the cusp of the exciting and avant-garde," wrote one reviewer, "thus it is no surprise that Nostalghia ended up on the bill. When Ciscandra opens her mouth and that amazing voice flows forth, it is nothing short of show-stopping.  The jaws dropped, eyes widened, movement stopped, time stood still, magic flowed... "

Nostalghia - vocalist Ciscandra Nostalghia, Roy Gnan on keyboards, drums and programming, and touring cellist Adele Stein - is on the road in support of its debut album Chrysalis, released on April 8 (110 Records/INgrooves) to a slew of rapturous reviews*.  The band has already shared the stage with Jared Leto's 30 Seconds to Mars, HIM, Gorgol Bordello, The Orb, Bosnian Rainbows and Serj Tankian (System of a Down), and counts artists like Skrillex and Marilyn Manson and former Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo as early fans.  Nostalghia, whose music crosses numerous genres, supported Green Day and Avenged Sevenfold at all five of Australia's Soundwave Festivals this past February.
