[OMFG] This Is The Greatest Tour This Year

epickingsandidolstourmatlarge

What is with amazing tours not having the decency to stop in my neck of the woods? Yesterday it was the Kansas/King’s X tour that got my hopes up before crushing them entirely. Today it has been announced that Devin Townsend Project and Katatonia will be headlining the “Epic Kings And Idols” tour, which sees support coming from Paradise Lost and Stolen Babies. DTP and Katatonia will alternate headlining each show.

DTP will be touring in support of their upcoming album Epicloud (no official release date announced) while Katatonia will be supporting their upcoming album Dead End Kings (coming out Aug. 28th). This tour also sees Paradise Lost back in the States after a five-year hiatus.

You can see all the tour dates below (No Detroit date means I’m weeping as I write this).
