The Press Release:
Metal alchemists Candiria will be hitting the road for a spate of headline dates commemorating 20-plus years of their critically acclaimed sophmore album, Beyond Reasonable Doubt.
The tour kicks off on April 20 in Long Island and will feature support from Cleric on most dates. The trek will take the band through the Northeast and the Midwest. It also includes an appearance at the annual New England Metal and Hardcore Fest. The band will also play two shows supporting Killswitch Engage. Additional dates will be added and all confirmed dates are below.
The band has crafted a special set list for the tour to celebrate the definitive Beyond Reasonable Doubt album. At the shows, Candiria will also be selling a special “Collector’s Edition” of Beyond Reasonable Doubt. This version is packed with memorabilia and imagery from the period in which the band was writing, recording, and supporting the album. It also boasts newly revised artwork, audio taken from the original 1997 masters, and a forward by original drummer Ken Schalk. It is a piece that diehard Candiria fans will certainly want for their musical libraries.
Additionally, vocalist Carley Coma has also launched a series of videos for the band’s latest album While They Were Sleeping. The series dives deep into the story behind the album’s concept.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve only ever been a casual supporter of the sound that Candiria delivers but I come out when the means and time permit me to do so. A lot of my friends are manic for them and I love when that happens because the bands need the support. As a matter of fact I just caught them for the Blacklight Media Records showcase that they headlined at the Gramercy Theatre. It was a good time but that being said I don’t think I’ll be seeing them on this go round based on the venues. I do wonder what the rest of you might think about it. Will you be heading out to catch Candiria and help them celebrate the 20th Anniversary of their sophomore album? Chime in down below in the comments. Until next time.
