Read on for more information and tour-dates:

BLACKBIRD RAUM formed from the nucleus of a squatter community living in abandoned buildings and greenbelt treehouses in Santa Cruz, CA, in 2005. Using instruments you might find in a bluegrass band, the group creates progressive folk punk with an often bleak and mournful flavor that is more reminiscent of black metal, crust, and neo-folk.
