LesserKeycover

Progressive rock band Lesser Key (which features ex-Tool bassist Paul D’Amour) has announced a mini-tour with Deftones as well as a short N. American tour with prog metal band Cynic.

Drummer Just Hanson states:

We are all super excited to hit the road with Deftones, as they are one of those pioneer bands for heavy progressive music. They are always trying to push things forward with their sound and it’s going to be awesome to see them every night on this run.

We also feel the same way about Cynic, they are a legendary progressive band pushing things forward in their genre. It feels amazing to go out with a band like Cynic that has done so much great work and has made it through all their years as a band. They are always changing and redefining their sound and it’s what we aspire to do as well. For our setlist, we have a few things up our sleeves to keep things interesting for sharing our songs live. We are looking forward to seeing you all soon and sharing an experience together.

    Had no idea Paul D’Amour was in the band! No wonder they sound so good. Pissed Deftones won’t be on my leg of the tour :(
