Synthrock band The Birthday Massacre have announced that they will be embarking on a N. American tour this fall in support of their upcoming album Hide And Seek, which comes out Oct. 9th via Metropolis Records (pre-order here). The tour will see support coming from William Control and Aesthetic Perfection. Check below for tour dates as well as the cover art and track list for Hide And Seek.

Talking about Hide And Seek, vocalist Chibi states, “There is an intensity to this record that I definitely felt while we were writing and recording. At times, for me, it was a struggle. I had some very strong emotions during the time we worked on this, and it shows, I think, in my vocals – and I really love how it turned out. The lyrics also touch on some darker themes. There’s a lot of very moving stuff on this record. Very intense stuff.

Guitarist Rainbow adds, “There was an underlying sense of tension and urgency throughout the writing process. It was a tumultuous and emotional experience for us but, I think it’s yielded some of our best work.
