Published Sep 12, 2013Brazil-bred metal lords Sepultura have announced a North American package tour in support of their upcoming The Mediator Between Head and Hands Must Be the Heart concept album. Judging by the tour's "Tsunami of Metal" title, the band are primed to do some damage along the way.
On top of nightly headlining sets from Sepultura, metalcore crew Unearth, Canadian death metal greats Kataklsym and Dark Sermon will feature all throughout the November trip, a press release explains. Slipknot offshoot Scar the Martyr and rising Vancouver metal titans Anciients, meanwhile, take part in selected dates.
The trip kicks off in Hollywood, but Canadian shows stops are scheduled in Toronto and Montreal. You'll find all the details down below.
As previously reported, The Mediator Between Head and Hands Must Be the Heart is loosely based on Fritz Lang's 1927 film Metropolis and toys with themes about society's reliance on technology and what can be done to hold on to our humanity.
"More than ever we are robotized, through the worldwide web, Google glasses, chips under our skins and the globalized slavery our society suffers nowadays," guitarist Andreas Kisser had previously said. "The phrase [The Mediator Between Head and Hands Must Be the Heart] points to the heart as being the human factor who keeps a man, a man, not a robot. The heart beats with freedom of choice, we have to think by ourselves to create a real world, not a matrix."
The LP, produced by Ross Robinson, arrives in North America on October 22 through Nuclear Blast.
