It’s a pretty cold Tuesday out there in the East Coast territories which makes it almost perfect that a brand new tour by those Swedish masters of musical mayhem in Meshuggah would announce a headlining tour.
The Press Release:
Swedish extreme tech-metal pioneers MESHUGGAH have announced they will perform a handful of special U.S. headlining dates this Spring to add to the four U.S. festivals previously announced. Leading up to the trek, the band will make appearances in South America & Mexico before kicking off their U.S. dates on May 5th in Jacksonville, Florida. The tour, presented by The Noise, will also bring THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER as special guests for the headlining shows! Continue reading Meshuggah Announces North American Headlining Tour→
There’s nothing quite like a little bit of news from our friends over at Nuclear Blast Records to make a Fall day feel all the more refreshing. Sure that’s corney but the coffee has hit me with a great bit of energy today so there you go. Check out this brief about Sweden’s mighty Meshuggah.
The Press Release:
Swedish extreme tech-metal pioneers MESHUGGAH have announced their 2018 North American tour with special guests CODE ORANGE and TOOTHGRINDER. The tour will kick off at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver, BC on January 23rd and make stops in Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco before concluding at The Wiltern in Los Angeles on January 29th!

Artist: Meshuggah Title: “Born In Dissonance” (Single) Label: Nuclear Blast Records Release Date: 8/25/2016 Genre: Experimental Metal Rating: 4.5/5
Meshuggah has returned, well, at least they will return with a full album entitled “The Violent Sleep Of Reason” in October and the fans of the band are now able to get their first aural exposure to the works with the debut single “Born In Dissonance”. So how is it? I must admit that it’s a little tricky to first explain something by Meshuggah to anyone who hasn’t really followed them before and I’ve usually had more success with this after hearing the full body of work.

I’m not sure how it happened but I missed that last go round for Meshuggah at NYC’s now shuttered and torn down Roseland Ballroom and have never forgiven myself for it since the show was amazing (I was told) and the great venue no longer stands. That thought comes to me because it was a show I could have seen and missed and those chances are not ones we Metalheads should be taking when it comes to a crushing band and their latest tour. This rather long intro is where I share the news about the recently announced tour by Meshuggah who will be hitting our side of the fence in the Fall and bring along High On Fire with them as well. Check it out. The poster, press and dates are below and then I will return to wrap it all up.

Rejoice and let the jubilation that is the raging power of Extreme Metal music course throughout your very physical form because the mighty Meshuggah have announced a twenty fifth anniversary tour entitled “25 Years Of Musical Deviance” and it will visit North America for a limited run in a few short months.
