UPDATE: Tour dates have now been posted!
Pinch me; I must be dreaming. This is a tour package worth traveling five hours for.
Here’s what Periphery guitarist Misha Mansoor had to say:
“Hey guys. We are really excited to be announcing our very first North American headlining run. It is called the ‘Frak The Gods’ tour. We feel so lucky to be able to have our buddies in The Human Abstract as direct support to us. They will be followed by Textures, whom we all love dearly, and who will be coming to the U.S. for the first time ever! Last, but definitely not least, we have the wonderful dudes from The Contortionist rounding off this fun little package. The dates are still being worked out but the tour will be from early September to early October and it will also hit a few Canadian locations as well because we love you guys too. Needless to say, this is definitely a tour by musicians for musicians. With that said, all fans of progressive music, musician or not, will enjoy this tour greatly. We hope to see you guys at the shows.”
I will most definitely be hitting this tour up, even if it means I have to miss Opeth and Katatonia this September. I am just that false.
More info on this tour when we get it, but I am beyond excited for Periphery’s first headlining tour. It’s such a high calibur package as well!
