Xandria Cancels 2nd Leg North American Tour

We were getting pretty excited about the upcoming return of Xandria to our region since it was going to also bring along Kobra and The Lotus (who we love) and September Mourning (who we also greatly enjoyed) but then we saw this Facebook notice go by. I have copied it in full for your perusal. Check it out.

Facebook Statement:
“Dear all,

Some bad and some good news, folks: Starting with the bad news first: It comes with grief and sadness that our singer Dianne cannot perform with us for the time being. Sometimes these things are beyond your own power and there is a life offside the stages of the world which requires appropriate attention, so please bear with us.

This unfortunately also means that we have to cancel the upcoming Russia shows in Moscow and St. Petersburg as well as the following US tour in the end of September and October. We are already working on new dates for these stretches, yet can’t determine an exact time window by now already. Please stay alerted for ticket-return info in here and where you purchased your tickets.

As for short term solutions: Our dear friend Aeva Maurelle (https://de-de.facebook.com/aevamaurelleofficial/) of our buddies from alternative metal band Aeverium – Official Site will step in to rock with us the European dates in November and December. Please welcome Aeva (https://www.instagram.com/aevamaurelle/) with a warm applause. We will make these shows nights to remember for you all! Ticketlink: https://xandria.merchcowboy.com/tickets. Can’t wait to see you out there!

Yours,
Xandria”

Xandria Announces 2nd Leg North American Tour

We’ve been interested in the music of Xandria here at the Metal Command HQ for some time and it’s wonderful that they’ve been able to come over to this side of the ocean and entertain their fans. We first managed to catch them in concert when they were one of the openers for the mighty Sonata Arctica but then there was too long of a break in their US Touring action until only recently when they hit the road and brought an exciting package to our live stages with support from Sirenia and MindMaze. If you missed those shows when they rumbled through you surely missed out but now you have a second chance as the band announces a second leg return. Check out their quick Official Facebook page announcement along with the tour dates. I’ll return at the close with additional thoughts.

Per Facebook:
USA here we come again! What would be more fitting after the great success of our 1st US Headlining run in may than doing a 2nd stretch in Oktober? Right…nothing! Well, except doing another one with our buddies from KOBRA AND THE LOTUS and September Mourning! Hell Yeah!! So many cities we haven’t rocked sofar! Well here we go again! Get your tickets NOW! Because THIS Is going to be AWESOME!

Xandria Announces First-Ever North American Headlining Tour

I love a good concert tour announcement and this one ranks high on my list since its bringing a few bands that we don’t see all that often around these parts and that is awesome. Check out the press release below.

The Press Release:
German Epic Symphonic Metal stalwarts XANDRIA have taken things to the next level with their seventh studio album Theater of Dimensionss. The album is a hyper-emotional affair that digs deep, lyrically speaking. It’s also an incredibly metallic effort. There is a soundtrack-like, orchestral finesse inherent to the compositions, echoed by pounding groove and sophisticated shredding. Now XANDRIA is ready to bring their breathtaking live show back to North America for a headline tour this May. Support on the tour will come from label mates Kobra And The Lotus and Once Human. The tour kicks off May 9th in New York, NY and runs through May 30th in Mesa, AZ. A complete list of dates can be found below.
The band cannot wait to tour North America:

“We are super excited to go on our first ever North American headline tour in May, playing east to west coast, along with the wonderful Kobra and the Lotus as well as Once Human. Let’s get these places rocked!”

“TriggerPulse” (Single) by Kobra and The Lotus

Artist: Kobra and The Lotus
Title: “TriggerPulse” (Single)
Label: Napalm Records
Release Date: 9/9/2016
Genre: Heavy Metal
Rating: 4/5

I’ve been down with the sounds of Kobra and The Lotus since I first heard them a couple of years ago and think that they are one of the most promising of the new groups to come upon the Metal scene in a few years. Fronted by the incredible Kobra Paige, we last heard them on album with the cover release of “Words Of The Prophets” and to say that many are eager for new music would be an understatement. The band has signed to Napalm Records and joins the roster alongside fine bands like Kamelot and many more. Since a new double CD is being worked on we got the single “TriggerPulse” to feed our brains for the duration.
