Following a round of June/July headline and festival appearances across Europe, Swedish progressive metal occultists Evergrey will be returning to North America for a string of headline dates with support coming from Australian melo-prog metal quintet Voyager, Canadian melo-power philosophists Borealis and Texas-based prog metal horde Oceans of Slumber. The Revolver Mag-presented campaign is scheduled to kick-off in Chicago in late August and will run through 10 more markets before closing out at ‘Midweek Mayhem’ (as part of ‘ProgPower USA’ 2015) in Atlanta in September. Check out a full list of confirmed dates below (with more tba).

As previously mentioned, Detroit protopunk veterans Death will be invading New York City this Saturday night (5/30) for a special headline show.

If you bought tickets to the Irving show, you can get a refund at point of purchase. Tickets to the Webster show are on sale here.

Earlier this spring, Arizona heavy metal champs Cavalera Conspiracy, feat.

The almost month-long trek crashed a jam-packed Marlin Room at Webster Hall in New York City on April 19. The run was in support of Cavalera Conspiracy‘s latest studio offering on Napalm Records titled Pandemonium. A few belated shots from CC‘s set in NYC can now be viewed in this post.
Speaking of Sepultura, the guys are currently on the road in North America celebrating their 30th anniversary with the help from Destruction, Arsis and others, as previously mentioned. The trek lands at the Marlin Room at Webster Hall a week from today (5/30); tix are still available.

New Mexico-based sludge/post-metal foursome Old Man Gloom (feat. members of Cave In, ex-ISIS, Converge) will be setting out on a series of North American dates in September with Mare that kick off in Brooklyn at Saint Vitus on September 3 [which is now sold out], as previously discussed. The gang have just added a second gig at Vitus for September 4 [tix on sale now]. They write:
We’re adding a second St Vitus show!
You might think this was always the plan, and that we just waited to announce until the first one sold out, which it has. You might think that, but you’re wrong. We purposefully kept a day off in Brooklyn so we could go to all these “localvore” restaurants, get tanked by amazing concoctions made by these mythical “mixologists”, buy some jeans tailored just to our middle aged bodies(not too snug, but let’s show what we’re working with under the hood), and seduce all the young people working as baristas with our undeniable charm.
Instead, we’re playing for you, Friday, at St Vitus. You can get totally fucked up and not have to go to work now! Tickets are available. Buy them all!
OMG are hitting the road in support of last year’s The Ape of God record on Profound Lore. Stream the new LP in full and check out an up-to-date list of shows below.
