Rings Of Saturn will deliver a space-infused set of Metal in NYC with support from Nekrogoblikon, Lorna Shore, Gloom, Entheos and Allegaeon. Come out early enough to get your money’s worth.
Happy Tuesday readers, I’m hoping that you enjoyed the extended holiday weekend but now we are saying its time to get back to everything that you are doing in the day. Earlier today we witnessed an amazing press preview but that story is for another blog post and while we were out the news came in about the upcoming tour by Rings Of Saturn. You can check it all out down below. Don’t worry I will close us out as usual.
The Press Release:
Alien themed tech-death masters, RINGS OF SATURN, announced their 24-date U.S headlining trek entitled The Dank Meme tour. Kicking off on March 2nd at Club Redd, the tour will make stops in Anaheim, New York, and Atlanta before it concludes on March 30th at the Gas Monkey Bar ‘N Grill in Dallas. Joining the band on stage are purveyors of Goblin Metal NEKROGOBLIKON, Colorado tech-metallers ALLEGAEON and California quartet ENTHEOS.
RINGS OF SATURN comments, “We can’t wait to head out on The Dank Meme Tour so we can bring more of the Ultu Ulla album to our fans live. With support from Nekrogoblikon, Allegaeon and Entheos this tour is gonna be sick.”
ALLEGAEON vocalist Riley McShane comments: “Hi, friends! Very excited to announce that we are joining our friends in Rings of Saturn, Nekrogoblikon, and Entheos, for another US tour in March. We can’t wait to see all your faces, send us memes to harass each other with until we finish touring and hit the studio later this year for album number 5! If you’re at a show, you’ll hear a new song: Extremophile(b): Evolution.”

“Winter is coming”. It is, and I mean it. Right after Fall happens which feels like its heading our way a little earlier after the day of rain and chillier evenings that we just had. Now before I get off track let me say why I said that one and it was mostly because the guys in Whitechapel will be keeping our cooler months hotter with some molten Metal on a tour that will bring us right into the colds of winter. They’ll be celebrating a special anniversary and bringing along some awesome supporting acts. Take a look at the poster, the press copy and the massive run of dates.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: What!!! No NYC dates!!! How. Dare. You! I’m sorry, I am getting off tangent here but it’s a bit of a bummer that this package isn’t paying our Big Apple a visit since I know a lot of the fans will be eager to witness this on stage and might not get to some of the other regional spots. I’ve seen Whitechapel a few times over the years and they never disappoint. Carnifiex is also an unleashed ferocious beast on the live stage and I haven’t caught them enough over the years. You just cannot always fit stuff in no matter how hard you try. Sadly, I haven’t managed to catch Rings Of Saturn, Entheos and So This Is Suffering yet and with the show not hitting my immediate region it looks like it will be a little longer for me to do so. So what about you readers though. Will you be hitting one of these shows and what do you think about it as a tour on the whole. Chime in down in the comments section below. Happy early Anniversary Whitechapel. You’ve done some good for Metal over the years and its nice to see you working as hard as ever.

Intronaut will bring their sounds to life at SVB with support from Entheos and Moon Tooth. This event is 21+ with proper ID.
The Contortionist will appear with Monuments, Entheos and sleepmakeswaves. This should be an exciting show.
