Kataklysm confirm ‘Meditations Over North America Tour’ w/ Exhorder, Krisiun + more

Kataklysm live at Gramercy Theatre earlier this year by Jonathan Arevalo

Supporting their latest full-length album on Nuclear Blast dubbed Meditations, Canadian metal masters Kataklysm have confirmed their headlining ‘Meditations Over North America Tour,’ featuring sweet support from Exhorder, Krisiun and Hatchet.

Via a press release, Kataklysm leadman Maurizio Iacono comments:

It took a while for us to get a full North American tour put together for Meditations due to an extensive schedule and also the arrival of my little boy earlier this year. But, we are finally here and with a hell of a package this time. We are very excited to share the stage with the legendary EXHORDER; Slaughter of the Vatican is one of my all time favorite records. And to round off the package having our brothers in KRISIUN with us and the thrash outfit HATCHET is gonna make this a memorable tour. We will play a varied set of the bands discography and of course. our latest album Meditations, all wrapped up in a devastating live show as only KATAKLYSM can deliver. It’s gonna be sick. See you all very soon.

The run takes off in Joliet, IL and The Forge on September 4, hitting over 20 markets before concluding in Worcester, MA at The Palladium on September 26. New York stops on the foray include Brooklyn at Market Hotel on September 23 [TIX TBA], and Poughkeepsie at The Chance on September 26 [TIX].
