TOURISM: DARK TRANQUILLITY, OMNIUM GATHERUM, AND EXMORTUS TO INVADE NORTH AMERICA
Not long ago we received this announcement: Beginning early next year Dark Tranquillity will be mounting a North American tour in support of their new Construct album, and they will be joined by Finland’s Omnium Gatherum. Both of those bands turned in superior albums this year, with OG’s Beyond being a particular favorite of this site.
The third band on the tour is a California outfit named Exmortus. It appears we will have to investigate their music.
The tour begins on January 31 in San Juan, Puerto Rico, before moving to the actual North American continent in Atlanta on February 1. It’s scheduled to conclude in Philadelphia on March 2. I know you will be thrilled to learn that, in between, it will stop in Seattle so that I may see it. These are very accommodating bands.
The entire slate of dates follows the jump. Tickets are already available for purchase at this site:

got too excited and forgot to mention, Exmortus is a really awesome thrash/death band. they have two albums out, but not anything recently that i know of
ctrl + F = Sacramento, CA
Welp, fuck this tour then.
This must be a very common reaction. 🙂
Seems to happen to DGR a lot…
Wow, I really thought the last time they came was the final US tour for DT. Went to both the Seattle and Portland dates, both venues were at most 1/4 full. But glad it’s ElCo this time around, way better than S7. Plus it’ll mark my 7th time seeing them!
I’m going to have to disagree with your assertion that El Corazon is better than Studio Seven. While both venues have their merits, I prefer Studio Seven since you can actually hear/see the band from the bar as opposed to being in a completely different room. Although the bar at El Co is considerably better…
I’m just happy I live in a city where bands like these will stop in and play at a venue that holds 350-500 people. Whether it’s El C or S7, I’m always kind of amazed.
Fair enough. Now if only I could rig it so they only come here on days I have off, haha.
same here, i have no idea how tours like this end up passing through the small college town i live in, but i am eternally grateful for each and every one. i always try to express my gratitude to the band via merch purchases and even “thank you” messages on their FB pages, because even just a 1 or 2 cool shows a month is awesome for me
