Ne Obliviscaris 2015


Those of you who follow Australia’s Ne Obliviscaris on Facebook may have seen that three members of the band shared their year-end lists of favorite 2015 releases. But for those who missed them, we’re re-publishing them here. And we’re doing this on the heels of the band’s announcement that in addition to their North American appearances on the previously announced Inquisitional Torture tour headlined by Cradle of Filth, they will also be performing four 90-minute sets as headliners. Here’s where that will happen:

Feb 4@ The Side Bar, Tallahassee, FL (AA)
Feb 6@ O’Scheckey’s, Columbus, OH (AA)
Feb 7@ 5th Quarter Lounge, Indianapolis, IN (21+)
Feb 8@ Fubar, St.Louis, MO (AA)

  1. I feel like Xenoyr and I would get on well.

  2. Man, I was so sad to see them listed as the 3rd band (will be seeing them in Atlanta). I feel like I’m getting cheated. Glad that they’ve at least got some headline concerts, they so deserve it…

    • Oh to be close to one of those headlining shows. I still plan to see them, even if I don’t care about Cradle of Filth or Butcher Babies. The chance to see NeO in any capacity is too good to pass up. Hell, at least it’ll be in my town. I had to drive over three hours just to see Cormorant open a show in front of two bands I don’t really care for.

  3. i like Xenoyer
