Two of the more celebrated acts in progressive metal, Between the Buried and Me and Devin Townsend Project, have announced a fall North American co-headlining tour. Titled the “Transcending the Coma” tour, the new trek will span from September 9 through October 15 and will feature atmospheric tech metallers Fallujah as the opening act. BTBAM is slated to perform their most recent effort, 2015’s Coma Ecliptic, in its entirety on this tour. Check out the full touring schedule after the break.
The Black Dahlia Murder have announced a new U.S. headlining tour that will commence this April. The trek will begin on April 8 and run through May 28, with Fallujah and Disentomb to provide support. The band will be playing their 2003 album Unhallowed in its entirety, along with other songs from their discography. Vocalist Trevor Strnad comments:
The Zenith Passage – the Los Angeles tech death quartet that is comprised of former and current members of All Shall Perish, The Faceless and Fallujah – have premiered a new lyric video for their track “Holographic Principle II: Convergence” at Metal Injection. The track, which will appear on the group’s Solipsist, is fierce, complex composition full of mind-boggling instrumentation and interstellar cinematics. Guitarist Justin McKinney commented on the lyrical nature of the track:
“Recent studies suggest that our universe may only appear to be three dimensional and is, in fact, a two dimensional projection of a parallel universe – like a hologram in the unseen ‘real’ universe. ‘Holographic Principle II: Convergence’ mirrors the chaotic state of a destabilized mind awakening to realities much stranger than we could have imagined. The composition has a multifaceted, sporadic essence. While remaining true to our death metal roots, we pushed this piece’s edges into other territory, entwining the aggressive technical foundation with spatters of jazz fusion and classical symphony.We hope you’ll lose yourself as you take your first look into Solipsist.”

Solipsist will be released on April 15 via Unique Leader Records.
