On the Road with TYCHO
On The Road With TYCHO

In Association with FILTER Magazine

We went on tour with San Francisco audio/visual artist Tycho, to capture one of the most rigorous scenarios for our gear. In an effort to make the travels more tolerable, we outfitted Tycho with full sets of bags and apparel for each of the band members. The documentation of the travel between the shows and snapshots Tycho’s live performance captured just prior to the 2014 Awake tour, became a photo collection we call, Lucid. Check out the video, 36-page tour book, and project photos on the story page.
