The screening will take place at original Kuma’s Corner in Chicago, IL and will debut a new live aesthetic.

Set to begin a North American trek next month supporting Black Metal mystics, Wolves In The Throne Room, Gaerea have announced plans to kick off the run with a secret screening event to be held at he original Kuma’s Corner in Chicago, IL.

The festivities are scheduled for September 28th and while the details are scant thus far, the band will be revealing a new live aesthetic while seemingly transitioning from their current era to their next.

The band explained, This is the death of ‘Mirage’ and the moment we start to let go of our world just so another one can be born. This unique event will showcase everything Gaerea has ever stood for. Get ready to witness something truly special, crafted specially to each and everyone of you who wishes to join us for an evening we shall never forget.” 

Gaerea will be out in support of their universally hailed 2022 full length, Mirage. Earning praise from both fans and critics alike, the band’s compelling visual presence in combination with their powerful musical prowess position them as one of the genre’s most excitement new contributors.

In addition to the screening event, Kuma’s collaborated with Gaerea to release a signature burger. The entree is inspired by the Francesinha sandwich, a comforting dish that is native to the band’s hometown of Porto, Portugal. Modeled after Kuma’s famous Slayer burger, the Gaerea collab features a bed of fresh house-cut fries, texas toast, an angus beef patty, sausage, uncured ham, shredded monterrey jack cheese, and a fried egg, all smothered in a decadent Francesinha sauce.

Gaerea’s secret screening event is set for September 28th at Kuma’s Corner in Chicago. In addition to the screening, the band will be on hand for a special meet-and-greet with fans. The Crypt of Ancestral Knowledge tour with Wolves In the Throne Room, Blackbraid, Gaerea and Hoaxed begins September 29th and concludes October 24th in Denver, CO.
