Just got the word that the band Ghost Ship Octavius will be doing a brief touring run for the ardent fans. If the name is on the new side to you please don’t worry as its something you will remember soon enough as it features Matt Wicklund (God Forbid, Himsa) and Van Williams (Nevermore, Ashes Of Ares). I’ve copied the bands official statement from their Facebook along with the poster and dates. Then we can discuss a little deeper.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Alright I am definitely down for the regional show that we are getting since it’s going to be in the intimate space of The Studio at Webster Hall which I’ve been to more times than I can count right now. What better way to catch a brand new band than in a smaller space where you can get right up close to the band and feel the music hit you hard. Their music is still unknown to me so I am going to start poking around for some samples so I’m more schooled going in but I will say with truth that I’m really looking forward to this new project. I am also hip on seeing young Max Portnoy’s band Next To None as well since I really liked their EP from a couple of years ago when they first formed. What do you readers think? Is this a tour you will support? It’s going to be super reasonable on the wallet and the chance to get on the ground floor of something new in Metal so I hope you said yes. Let me know in the comments.
