Conan released their latest album, Existential Void Guardian, in September of 2018. The record is an absolute must-listen for fans of bands like Electric Wizard and Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats, and packs a heavy, psychedelic vibe that feels like the world’s heaviest acid trip.

When frontman Jon Davis recently chatted with Kerrang!, he spoke about how he used the album to focus on his fear of death. “I was thinking about what we were before we were born  —  that complete absence of self, and not existing kind of scared me,” said the frontman. “I’m not an expert on existentialism by any means, but it’s this loose idea where you just feel a complete sense of loss and emptiness inside. I thought it’d be cool to make that an actual place, rather than just a state of mind that in any idea coming of having a guardian to protect you or stop people from leaving that place.”

Jon found comfort and contentment with this fear as he spoke more openly on it, stating, “The contrast between how I once felt and how I feel now, is very large.”

The remaining dates of Conan’s tour with Black Label Society are as follows:


14 - Toronto, ON - Toronto Opera House
15 - Toronto, ON - Toronto Opera House
22 - Los Angeles - El Rey Theatre
23 - Los Angeles - El Rey Theatre
