As I compile these notes for the readership, I’ve got to admit that one of the last things I felt I would be composing was a tour announcement of any kind and sure, I’ve done a couple of them over the last few weeks but they still kind of surprise me when it comes to anything being scheduled stateside. That said, here is some news from the crushing Metal artists Jinjer.
The Press Release:
Internationally hailed Ukrainian modern metal juggernaut JINJER have unequivocally proven that even while facing a worldwide shutdown, they never stop – continuing to work harder than ever as they earn their reputation as metal’s hottest new export! With streaming counts in the millions and a stellar catalog of critically acclaimed music, the band never tires of distributing their mercilessly heavy, progressive music to the masses.
With this said, it comes as no surprise that JINJER is ahead of the game on upcoming performance plans too, as they’ve just announced the official rescheduling of their 2020 North American tour, with many new cities added. The tour, dubbed “Coming to America 2021”, features special guest heavy icons Suicide Silence! Kicking off in Seattle, WA on October 22, the tour will traverse for over a month – stopping in major cities such as Vancouver, BC, Los Angeles, CA, Chicago, IL, Toronto, ON, Brooklyn NY, Houston, TX and more before ending on December 12 in Phoenix, AZ.
Tickets will become available for pre-sale via Live Nation and local venues this coming Thursday, March 25 at 10:00 AM local time, with general on-sale starting the following day, Friday, March 26, also at 10:00 AM local time.

JINJER have finally entered the studio to start working on their highly anticipated fourth album on Napalm Records. Given the working title #JINJER4 by their fans, the band has been intensively writing new material over the past few months and it promises to be their most visionary and impactful release to date.
The recording sessions are once again taking place at Kaska Records Studios in Kiev, Ukraine, together with the band’s good friend and highly talented producer Max Morton.
Bassist Eugene Abdukhanov comments:
“Those of you who keep an eye on us must have already heard that JINJER have been working on new material pretty much since the beginning of the pandemic. It is one of those situations where even the most negative and terrible predicament can sometimes have a positive outcome. Deprived of live touring, we managed to focus all our creativity and frustration and turn it into new songs which are, in my opinion – the best music we have ever written. It’s complex but yet catchy as hell, groovy but with such a palette of notes, sounds and most importantly: feelings… this new album might take the whole genre of extreme music to a whole new level and raise the bar of musicality even higher for this band and the metal scene in general.”
Experience exciting live atmosphere and order JINJER’s new live album NOW!
Last year was a challenging year for the entire music industry, but JINJER never ceased their musical ambitions, leaving another successful year in their wake. JINJER’s latest release, their first live album, Alive in Melbourne (out now via Napalm Records), captures one their very last performances before the worldwide pandemic began and is a must have for new and diehard fans alike!

PiercingMetal Thoughts: This is some great news and one can only hope that the world is in a better place in terms of the pandemic by the time that this tour hits the ground running. I’ll be fully vaccinated by that time but will still be using serious precaution if I end up at the regional appearance of the band. I have not seen Jinjer more than once but I truly enjoy their presentation, the music they deliver and how well the fans are receving them. They are quite fortunate to have climbed so fast when you consider the amount of bands that are out there hoping for the same. I recommend them if you are still on the curious side and as I close this notice up I wonder what you think about the news. Chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you next time. Keep safe my friends.
