News Bits: Devin Townsend, Soulfly, Tangents

One of metal’s most intriguing, ominous and immensely talented figures, the mighty Devin Townsend, has been holed up undergoing intense rehearsals as he prepares to embark on a headlining tour for the first time in his solo career. This will be a special evening exploring a 15 year musical journey with Townsend performing songs spanning his entire vast catalog. This tour kicks off on Oct. 8th and visit HERE to view the tour itinerary.
 
Special VIP Packages and Presale Tickets will be available for the tour.  Please visit HERE for more information.
 
Progressive Metal act TesseracT, who are one of the most talked about bands among musicians and tech-heads, thanks to the quintet’s time signatures and musical complexity, will be supporting Devin on all shows. Periphery will be main support on the Springfield, VA, and West Chester, PA dates.

Longtime Roadrunner Records recording artist Soulfly, lead by metal titan Max Cavalera, has announced a string of winter tour dates that will bring the band to eleven cities beginning in November. 
 
This is Soulfly’s first tour since the release of the seventh album, Omen, which features appearances by famed guests like Dillinger Escape Plan’s Greg Puciato and Prong’s Tommy Victor.  Alternative Press said “longtime fans of Cavalera’s brand of primitive crunch will love Omen…” while Revolver said Omen is “harder, angrier and catchier than its predecessors.”
