Santa Cruz-based progressive/electronic band STS9 (a.k.a. Sound Tribe Sector 9) returns to Charleston in March during their coast-to-coast tour in support of a new studio album titled Ad Explorata, their tenth official release.

The band describes the collection as "inspired by the idea that there is always more to be discovered; manifested by the belief that you can always push toward the unknown and unexplored; and created by the will and desire for constant artistic evolution, expression and change," whatever that means.
