Meshuggah returns to NYC and will dominate the masses at the spacious Hammerstein Ballroom.
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!
