Unsane kicks off Scattered, Smothered & Covered US Tour, plays entire album live

Influential alt-metal group Unsane has announced super-special summer US tour dates. The trio will perform its classic 1995 album Scattered, Smothered & Covered from start to finish. The tour started last night, August 5, at NYC’s Santos Party House.
