Three of progressive rock and metal’s best and brightest up-and-comers are teaming up for a run of dates across the Eastern and Midwest United States! Metal Blade signees Native Construct—who released their stellar debut Quiet World earlier this year—have announced The Proggest August Tour, featuring fellow Heavy Blog is Heavy friends and favorites Wings Denied, who released their own debut, Mirrors for a Prince [review], last year and Outrun the Sunlight, who also blessed us with Terrapin [review] in 2014. As its title implies, the tour kicks off in August and will take the three bands through the Eastern US, hitting markets from Vermont to Tennessee, and some of the Midwest with more dates to be announced very soon!
