This post is really about news of new spring tours, but I couldn’t resist adding that just-released cover artwork for the next studio album by Paradise Lost, Tragic Idol, which is scheduled for release on April 23 in Europe via Century Media Records. The album’s artwork was designed by Parisian designer Valnoir (www.metastazis.com), who has also worked with other artists such as Morbid Angel, Ulver, Watain, and more than 150 others.

Now, on to the tours news:

First, Lambgoat reported this news earlier today: “Late this spring there will be a festival type tour in the U.S featuring OriginCattle DecapitationMisery Index, AbortedVital RemainsThreat SignalRings Of Saturn, and Dawn Of Ashes. The trek is currently being booked, with dates expected to surface in several weeks. We’ll keep you posted.” I mean, holy shit, that’s a helluva tour right there. But there’s more:

Hails and Horns reports that Skeletonwitch and The Black Dahlia Murder will be mounting a U.S. tour this spring. The dates are after the jump.

But that’s not all: MetalSucks will be co-sponsoring a 24-city U.S. tour consisting of Protest the Hero, Periphery, Jeff Loomis, The Safety Fire, and Today I Caught the Plague. The schedule for that one is after the jump — and there’s one more tour after the jump, too.

And here’s the info on the Protest the Hero headlining tour:

  1. That festival-style tour peters out after Aborted, but still… nicely done.

    Oh yeah, Aborted and System Divide had to drop off the Overkill tour, in case people weren’t aware.

    Hasn’t the tour with The Black Dahlia Murder / Nile / Skeletonwitch been confirmed?

  2. One of these days I’m going to roll my eyes so hard that they fall out my skull whenever I see a list of dates that goes LA, San Francisco, Portland.
