IDAHO co-founder Jeff Martin is touring again for the first time in 20 years. Martin formed the band in 1992 with his high school friend, John Berry, the two trading drumming and songwriting duties.

IDAHO’s slow/sadcore music is known for a fuzzy, foreboding four-string tenor guitar sound and enigmatic lyrics, inspiring a cult following. Berry exited the band around ‘92 and died in 2016. This tour supports IDAHO’s 10th soon-to-be-released full-length album and a documentary about IDAHO entitled Traces of Glory that is due for release in late 2021.
