Here are two North American tours announced this morning that are worth mentioning.


In our first post this morning I included a report from Metal Hammer based on an interview with Gojira’s frontman Joe Duplantier that the Gojira would be touring with Mastodon this October. There were no further details then, but there are now.

In addition to the pairing of Mastodon and Gojira, the tour will also include Norway’s Kvelertak and it will include dates in both the U.S. and Canada. A pre-sale for tickets and a limited number of VIP packages will become available this Wednesday, July 9, at 10 a.m. local venue time. General sales will begin on July 11.

Here’s the schedule (sadly for me, they’re skipping Seattle this time):

10/15/2014 Boise, ID Revolution
10/16/2014 Reno, NV Grand Sierra

This morning also brought news of a new tour headlined by Pallbearer with support from Tombs and Vattnet Viskar, and it’s also scheduled to begin in October. The tour will begin in the aftermath of Profound Lore’s August 19 release of Pallbearer’s new album, Foundations of Burden, which shows all signs of being stupendously good. It will also pick up after Pallbearer’s European tour with YOB, the details of which are also worth spreading around.

  1. Both of these are skipping me. Goddamit. That Mastodon/Gojira/Kvelertak tour skipped me last time too.

  2. ’10/15/2014 Boise, ID Revolution
    10/16/2014 Reno, NV Grand Sierra
    10/17/2014 Pomona, CA Fox
    10/18/2014 Phoenix, AZ Marquee **’


  3. I just noticed that the tour poster for Pallbearer et al. and all the bands are saying on FB that the Philadelphia show is at Black Box, but Profound Lore’s announcement said Underground Arts. I posted a comment on Profound Lore’s FB page so hopefully they can clarify that.

    • Actually Google tells me Black Box is AT Underground Arts. Must be something new, because I’ve been to UA a dozen times and never heard it referred to as Black Box.

  4. Can I just say what a relief to uncover someone who genuinely understands what they’re
    discussing over the internet. You definitely understand how to bring
    a problem to light and make it important.
    More people really need to look at this and understand this side of
    your story. It’s surprising you’re not more popular since you most certainly have the gift.
