animals as leaders 2014 may june tour

Do you like music without any interference from all of that lyrical nonsense? Animals as Leaders‘ latest headlining tour caters specifically to the instrumental crowd, bringing in tow Jeff Loomis & Keith Merrow‘s Conquering Dystopia and CHON. The trek sees the trio of shred-heavy acts hitting the road across the US in over a month’s worth of secondary markets, so chances are, you’re within a reasonable driving distance! Get dates below.

agalloch 2014

As a band of fellows with full-time jobs outside of the band, Agalloch rarely tours outside of small regional treks and festival appearances. However, it would appear as if Agalloch are planning something big for the release of their upcoming album The Serpent & The Sphere, as their recently announced “first leg” of their US tour is pretty extensive as it is, hitting stops they haven’t hit in years to my knowledge. Check out the dates below.

If you’re one of the many that thought Meshuggah‘s upcoming anniversary tour was much too short, then, well… there’s not much I can do for you there.

The potentially one-and-only Cloudkicker tour is just about halfway through its course, and people are reporting back that the Intronaut-backed live act is totally on-point. This tour is obviously a must-see, but the reality is that the tour dates aren’t all that extensive, leaving many fans missing out. Fortunately, band leader Mr. Ben Sharp is well aware of this, and he’s doing everything he can to make sure the tour is well documented, including plans for a potential live album.

dillinger happiness is a smile

As a vinyl collector and a massive fan of The Dillinger Escape Plan, I was pretty bummed that the group’s new single ‘Happiness Is A Smile’ was going to be released exclusively on vinyl through the band’s merch table during their latest run of dates with Trash Talk, Retox, and SHINING. The tour was coming nowhere close to home, so I just assumed it wasn’t meant to be.

southern darkness fest

I don’t know if it’s the Baader-Meinhof phenomenon at work here, but I’m starting to notice more and more metal festivals popping up in the United States. There are regional “deathfests” all over the place, with Baltimore’s Maryland Deathfest being the most infamous. This week alone, Deathwish, Inc announced their first ever two-day festival featuring their artists and related acts, and now we’ve got another potential locale for travel in Southern Darkness Festival, which takes place August 23rd in Ybor City, Florida.

So this is a bit of a pleasant surprise. Deathwish Inc., whom you may know as the record label setup by Tre McCarthy and Jacob Bannon (Converge) have announced plans to put together a couple of all-dayers in July, featuring a whole selection of bands from their roster. It’s every bit as crusty and heavy as it sounds.

Dillinger Tour 2014

The Dillinger Escape Plan are one of the most destructive forces in live music, hands down. Largely unpredictable sets could see you and about a hundred others up on stage and/or various band members jumping off of large objects or climbing up to the ceiling. Joining them on their latest North American tour are the moshworthy Trash Talk and Retox, as well as Heavy Blog favorites SHINING.

You can see photos from this tour’s first two stops at Webster Hall and Union Transfer in New York and Philadelphia respectively below. You may notice a slight imbalance; photographer Maclyn Bean was late for the show in New York and missed SHINING’s set, whereas Dillinger’s set in Philly could not be captured due to the lack of a photo pit and the omnipresence of mosh.

For the first time ever, Heavy Blog is Heavy is bringing you two different sets of photos from two different photographers for two different shows on two different dates for the same tour in one post. Madness! Photographers Kyle Gaddo and Maclyn Bean both had the opportunity to see The Ocean and Scale the Summit on their co-headling tour with Silver Snakes and The Atlas Moth opening. Needless to say, all the bands put on incredible performances and you deserve to have them envisioned in all their glory. Please enjoy!
