Now this is a grouping that I can get behind and say “yes indeed this is going to be a good one”. It seems that Scar Symmetry are making a long overdue return to these parts and bringing along Arsis, Shattered Sun and Painted In Exile. Check out the poster, press copy and the dates and know that I will return with some closing opinion.
The Press Release:
Swedish Melodic Death Metallers SCAR SYMMETRY, will embark on a North American headlining tour this September. Joining them are label-mates ARSIS along with SHATTERED SUN and PAINTED IN EXILE. SCAR SYMMETRY guitarist Per Nilsson comments:
”We’re proud to announce the dates and venues for our first North American headlining tour this September! As you can see, we’ve chosen to keep this tour on the short side – but rest assured the shows will be of full length and girth! With us on this metal pilgrimage we have Virginia tech-death overlords ARSIS, Texas metalcore masterminds SHATTERED SUN and New York prog professors PAINTED IN EXILE.
“Out of all the tens of thousands of cities in North America, we have chosen to grace a mere eleven with our presence which is bound to leave some of you disappointed – but trust me, if this tour is a raging success I promise you we will come back early 2017 for another bunch of shows (yes California you’re on our mind too)! For now, spread the good word and come out to one of our shows, can’t wait to see you all!”
