Kataklysm and Aborted Bring "Kill the Elite" Tour Across North America

Kataklysm and Aborted Bring 'Kill the Elite' Tour Across North America
Montreal's Kataklysm had an up and down 2013, with the health-related departure of drummer Max Duhamel preceding the release of their unrelenting Waiting for the End to Come. But things will continue to get better for the band in 2014, with news that they're gearing up for a North American tour.

The month-long journey is dubbed the "Kill the Elite" tour and gets underway with a hometown show at Montreal's Club Soda on April 4. They'll dip between the U.S. and Canada for the first half of the trip and have lined up Canuck gigs in Toronto, Winnipeg, Regina, Edmonton, Calgary, Kamloops and Vancouver. You'll find all the date and venue specifics in the listings down below.

While Kataklysm will be the marquee metal act on the trip, they'll be joined by Belgian death metal wreckers Aborted.

Kataklysm's 11th full-length overall, Waiting for the End to Come, dropped earlier this fall and was described by Exclaim! as mixing "fast, groove-filled riffs and unrelenting blast beats" with "slower, more melodic passages, reminiscent of the Swedish death style."
