Published Apr 05, 2011If you're a follower of iconic Vancouver industrial outfit Front Line Assembly, you have probably noticed it's been a while since you saw them in your town. The band actually haven't gone on tour since 2007. That's all about to change, though, as the crew are ready to take their new tunes across North America this spring.
Following the release of their 2010 set Improvised.Electronic.Device, the band felt it was high time to hit the road.
"We feel we have grown as a band over the last four years. We really feel this new album will sound great live and can't wait to get out there and be creative with it," keyboardist/vocalist Bill Leeb said in a statement.
Keyboardist Jeremy Inkel added, "We consider North America our homeland, so to us, it's very important to represent ourselves as best as we can. In consideration, all our musical aspirations were born over here, this is where we got our start."
The tour kicks off at Winnipeg's Pyramid Cabaret on May 15 and tears across the continent before wrapping things up with a homecoming show at Vancouver's Rickshaw Theatre on June 13. Check out the full tour schedule below.
