Category: Tours and Rumors of Tours


London’s most promising new progressive rock outfit, Haken, will finally be touring in the states in just a few months! While the length of the tour is rather short and you need to be in the Midwest, Canada, or the East Coast to see them, it’s still going to be one hell of a show.

The band is fresh off the release of their Restoration EP [review] and just announced yesterday that they’d also be taking out the incredibly young band Next to None as direct support for the five of the shows. The band had apparently seen them play on the Progressive Nation at Sea cruise and decided they were a fantastic live act.

Dates are posted below!

Montreal’s technical death shredders in Beyond Creation have just announced a mini-tour across the Midwest and east coast of the United States! Fresh off of the October release of their sophomore LP, Earthborn Evolution, and some touring across Canada with the dizzyingly fast Archspire, these guys are ready to gear up for some headlining dates. Check them out below:

slipknot summers last stand 2015

Just last week, Slipknot announced a run of North American tour dates with supporting act Hatebreed and I expressed a certain level of incredulity that the band would be touring much more in the United States in 2015, as the band tends to make a habit of disappearing fairly quickly. Fortunately my doubts became unfounded as the group have announced a fairly extensive headlining trek from July through September with supporting acts Lamb of God (!!!!), Bullet For My Valentine, and Motionless in White. Get dates below.

Cult of Luna

Sweden’s Cult of Luna may have announced just over a year ago that they’d be going on hiatus, but they left things pretty open-ended. In their December 2013 statement, they stated that “Maybe we’ll release another album next year or maybe in a decade we honestly don’t know. Sooner or later we will return in one form or another.” Well, there doesn’t seem to be any new music on the horizon, but the post-metal behemoths have announced a few dates in North America this May!

In 2015, legendary rock band Faith No More will be releasing their first album in 18 years, and we can hardly contain our tentative excitement. Since their reunion in 2010, the band have only played one-off shows and made a few festival appearances, mostly in Europe. Now, the group have finally mapped out a proper North American tour in support of the impending release of their as of yet untitled comeback record. Get dates below!

btbam the atlas moth

Between the Buried and Me are on the home stretch of recording their hotly anticipated rock opera, pushing for a tentative summer release through Metal Blade Records. Naturally, the band will have to tour in support of the record’s impending release in the meantime, and between the act’s headlining spots at the recently announced Texas Independence Fest and New England Metal and Hardcore Festival, the group will be travel-ready with a new setlist guaranteed to see audiences between Austin, TX and Worchester, MA.

So of course it’s a lock that we’ll see Between the Buried and Me touring North America this spring (hopefully with new material in their set!), but a full itinerary and supporting lineup are currently unknown. However, post-metal act The Atlas Moth are strongly hinting that they will be involved in the trek.

texas independence festival

To celebrate the 170th anniversary of Texas not being independent, Texas Independence Fest has released the lineup for their 2015 festival from April 10th to 12th.

The list of bands is long and crazy, featuring some performances that are inevitably going to be fantastic. From deathcore titans like Oceano and Whitechapel to the technically-laden Vale of Pnath and headliners Between The Buried And Me, the grouping looks intense and diverse. More bands are to be announced in the (hopefully near) future.

Altar of Plagues malthusian

Unfortunately, experimental black metal visionaries Altar of Plagues are sticking to their story of being woefully disbanded. However, that’s not stopping them from following through with their promise of “not reuniting” throughout 2015 for some proper farewell gigs for whoever will accept them, seemingly out of spite of the very probable offers from festivals trying to “buy” the band’s reunion. On one hand, we won’t be seeing them at Maryland Deathfest, Roadburn, or Temples Fest any time soon and that is unfortunate. On the other, the group have announced a string of “posthumous” dates across Europe, bringing in tow the blackened death metal act Malthusian.

slipknot prepare for hell tour 2015

Slipknot may be controversial amongst the online internet community, but they are without a doubt one of the biggest active metal acts of 2015. The band returned from a lengthy hiatus with their new album .5: The Grey Chapter and subsequent headlining tour with Korn and King 810. Neither the album nor the tour turned too many heads around these parts, but it’s hard to ignore the actions of a band so influential to our formative years of metal fandom.
