Perturbator returns to North America for his first trek across the continent since his blistering set at Psycho Las Vegas 2019, extending his co-headlining tour with Health to include a month of dates in the United States and Canada.

“Very excited to head back to the U.S. after all of these years, and to perform my latest release, Lustful Sacraments, with my good friends from Health and the great Street Sects no less,” said James Kent (aka Perturbator).

Perturbator released Lustful Sacraments in 2021, with the nine-song collection described by Revolver as “coiling together elements of heavy metal, industrial music, techno, goth, post-punk, horror-movie and video-game soundtracks,” Decibel Magazine said Kent goes “supernova… directing his energies toward death rock and post-punk,” and Kerrang called the release a “collision of goth riffs and early NIN energy.”

Perturbator released the film noir-meets-post-apocalyptic video for “God Says (feat. Hangman’s Chair)” ( last week, which New Noise accurately noted as “the very journey of hedonism in monochrome form.”
