Progressive Metal fans will be excited to learn that the mighty melodic Metal power of Evergrey will be returning to our shores for a quick few dates as they set their sights on the Prog Power event in Atlanta, GA. Check out the poster below along with the posted press copy and then I will discuss a little deeper with you. There are a lot of awesome tours being announced as you can see.
Swedish metal act Evergrey will be embarking on a North American headlining tour this summer in support of their latest release, ‘Hymns for the Broken.’ Vocalist Tom Englund said, “North American fans, I hope you are ready for this! It has been a while since we’ve been here and Evergrey is stronger than ever. I hope to see everyone on the road. You won’t want to miss it.” Supporting Evergrey are Australian prog-rock act Voyager, as well as Borealis and Oceans of Slumber.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m going to keep my thoughts super simple for this one and say that since I really enjoy the kind of Metal that Evergrey delivers, that attending this show is a bit of a no brainer for me. Also it will be at the very intimate space of the Marlin Room which is the middle venue space in the Webster Hall building. They don’t put up a barrier between fans and band in this space and the stage is long so maximum fans can get right up front. Okay so it’s a little arduous on photographers unless you get a good spot but such is life. I’ve caught Voyager in the past and they are pretty solid but Oceans Of Slumber are a new name to my Metal radar. What do you readers think about this tour and its limited run of dates? Will you be attending? Let’s discuss in the comments section below.
