About Bask:

Bask are a band from Asheville, North Carolina. Active since 2012, this band is known for its distinctive mix of Americana, Stoner Rock, Post-Rock, and Psychedelic. Since 2014 the band has managed to tour around the world, sharing the stage with the likes of High on Fire and Black Tusk to name a few.

Bask began roughly around December 2011 by Middleton and Worth, who were jamming together and composing music inspired by a multitude of bands they liked. Eventually, the Whale’s own Jesse Van Note moved to Asheville and joined on bass with Zeb Camp joining in afterward and refining their sound further. By 2014 the band had played enough shows and eventually recorded their debut album, American Hollow.

The release party for American Hollow was on 25 July 2014 at The Mothlight in Asheville (With Zombie Queen, Navajo Witch, and Earth Mover as support) and served as the start of the tour in support of the album along with a short tour in the fall.

The band would tour more heavily throughout the next two years, including a tour of Europe supporting High on Fire and Black Tusk and a tour in early 2016 supporting Black Tusk and Royal Thunder before closing out that year with a tour of their own. On 6 January 2017, the band made a teaser announcement of the following: #RambleBeyond

Bask would tour North America twice in 2018 and appear at a host of festivals, closing out the year with a fifth-anniversary performance. On April 4 2019, it would be announced that a third album was in the recording stage and set for a 2019 release via Season of Mist. The band would also announce a string of shows surrounding the Chicago edition of Doomed & Stoned Festival.

We’re stoked to have them at The Whale!
