Well, this news might come a little bit surprising! Not that it’s surprising to see those bands back on the road, but the mix of the line-up sure is.
Ex prog-deathcore veterans in Veil Of Maya just released with their new record False Idols this year. After teaming up with Lukas Magyar on vocals and releasing Matriarch in 2015, the band stepped more towards making catchy tunes. But no worries, they still got bouncy grooves for you! Dance Gavin Dance do have bouncy grooves as well; not in a deathcore-ish, but rather a post-hardcore style. Having released a brilliant record called Mothership last year, they will be back in Europe after touring with Good Tiger in 2016, shortly after the album’s release.
Might this tour get even wilder? Who knows; the support acts still haven’t been announced! It could be possible that the fellows in Good Tiger come over to Europe again. Why? They already toured with Veil Of Maya and Periphery in 2015, after their release of A Head Full Of Moonlight. And as stated before, they just joined Dance Gavin Dance on their last European run. Additionally, their new record We Will All Be Gone will be released on February 9th. So maaaaaybe, this might be a good time to start a tour! What do you think?
