Wolves In The Throne Room Expand Fall Tour 2016

While I missed the first announcement that went out for the band, I felt it better late than never when they added additional dates for the upcoming September tour (especially since there are three shows in our own Big Metal Apple). The Wolves In The Throne Room are still rather new to my ears but a lot of the people I speak to regularly are interested in them so check out the poster, press copy and dates. I’ll see you at the close.

The Press Release:
WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM has added additional performances to their upcoming East Coast tour this September, following the re-issue of their debut LP, Diadem Of 12 Stars.

Since the upcoming WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM live dates were recently announced, a second show at Brooklyn’s Saint Vitus Bar was added, both shows selling out immediately. Due to this, a third NYC show has been added, which will now see the band playing at The Marlin Room at Webster Hall on September 11th. Additionally, WITTR’s performance at Pop Montreal has been confirmed, which will see the band joining the likes of The Kills, John Waters, Wally Badarou, Diet Cig, and many more.

The Inagural Run Of The Shockwave Festival Is Cancelled :(

This might bother some of you….

It was just about two months ago when we posted a blog announcement here in the Musings about the inaugural edition of the Shockwave Festival (see that post HERE).  The event was to feature what appeared to be a co-headlining Fear Factory and Voivod (even though it seemed that FF would close all the shows and hence get a longer set) along with Cattle Decapitation, Misery Index, Havok, Last Chance To A Reason, The Browning, Revocation, Forged In Flame, Vildjarta, and Dirge Within.   Sounds pretty cool if you are into most of or all of these bands right?  I felt that it was also cool that another new festival was coming to pass because that showed promise that others would be able to follow suit if the mood struck them.  Then around the tail end of June the word got out how Revocation, Forged In Flame, Vildjarta, and Dirge Within had all dropped off the tour but it was never really made that clear as to what the reason was.  The revised tour poster is below and obviously no longer featured those bands names. I appended these changes into the original blog posting for good measure since we like to speak about tours based on our heavy live coverage on the main site but with this getting weirder it prompted a second post.

Stranger than that was the announcement just the other day (7/3/12) that Voivod had pulled off the tour and they came right out into the open and said “Shockwave tour is no longer as advertised, Voivod really wanted to be touring but the situation was out of the band’s control and the tour producers could not live up to the promises.” Those are some pretty heavy comments. That left the fans who had purchased tickets with five bands less than the originally promised eleven. No one seemed to be added to the mix and to me this was just short of a Summer Slaughter lineup in terms of bands being offered to the general public.
