Published Feb 29, 2016Tech-obsessed metal greats Voivod gifted the faithful their Post Society EP this past Friday (February 26) while out on tour. Though their current stretch of shows is nearly done, the Quebec legends have announced even more dates are on the horizon.
As previously reported, the band are currently out on the road with Vektor and Black Fast. They cap the trek with Canadian dates in Toronto and Hamilton this weekend, but they will then team up with Detroit noise rock group Child Bite and King Parrot for a handful of U.S. and Western Canadian dates. This includes a stop at Vancouver's Rickshaw Theatre on June 13 and an appearance at Edmonton's Starlite Room on June 16.
You'll find the newly updated Voivod tour schedule, which also includes summer festival dates overseas and in Mexico, down below.
As previously reported, Post Society follows Voivod's 2013 full-length, Target Earth, and features songs previously issued on split 7-inches with At the Gates and Napalm Death, two exclusive originals, and a cover of Hawkwind's "Silver Machine." Drummer Michel Langevin described the five-song collection as delivering some "good old thrash-prog-punk-metal."
In related news, Child Bite's new Negative Noise album drops April 1 through Housecore Records. The record, the group's first full-length in six years, was produced by imprint owner Phil Anselmo.
