Rumours dem spreadin’. Rumours are gwaaaaaaaan.
I doubt Gregory Isaacs had this in mind when he sang that back in 1988, but it’s true. The Shining Facebook page has been a beacon of information this week, slowly letting on about an upcoming European tour in November involving three titans of metal; jazz-metal weirdos Shining, deep-diving prog-champions The Ocean and groove-obsessed Frenchies Hacride. It has pretty much confirmed the validity of three dates leaked for shows in France:
03/11/2013 – Divan du Monde – PARIS
10/11/2013 – Le Korigan – AIX EN PROVENCE
14/11/2013 – La Poudrière – BELFORT
But Dead Rhythm delved even further into the mess, uncovering another tease that suggested the tour would cover other European countries, suggesting this might be a more long-term companionship. Hell, the band even posted that link to their Facebook too! We’ll let you know the full-dates when they arise, but for now I’m crossing every body part possible for some UK dates. Too many times have I been lured into a tour and had my heart broken with the words ‘European tour’, only for it to really mean ‘Mainland European tour’. Here’s to hoping!
