Insomnium have made a few trips to North America, but this time around they will be headlining. After coming off their tour with Dark Tranquillity, Insomnium is heading back out with Omnium Gatherum.
The tour will kick off in the Big Apple New York City on Aug 11th and continue to September 7th. This tour will be in support of their latest album 'Shadows Of The Dying Sun', which made our 2014 Best Heavy Metal Album.
Niilo Sevänen, the volcalist and bassist of the band, had this to say abou the upcoming tour:
We are very happy to return to North America so quickly! With each previous tour we have felt that we've clearly gone forward and gained new fans so now it's the right time to bring a full headliner show across the Atlantic Ocean. We are more than happy to be sharing the bus and stage with our fellow Finnish brothers in death metal, the almighty Omnium Gatherum! Killer shows expected every night so get your tickets way in advance. See you all soon!
Markus Vanhala the guitarist for both Insomnium and Omnium Gatherum will be doing double duty throughout the tour. As he quotes:
Here's the tour that every melodeathmaniac (except my back & neck) have been waiting for - the double trouble Insomnium Gatherum tour in North America! That's gonna a hell of a ride thru America and nice times with super dudes as both of my brotherhood camps will be staying in the same bus. The last year's Omnium Gatherum North American debut tour was a blast and also a great success, so I'm really happy to come back also with OG and have another round spin of "Beyond the World tour" beyond Atlantic!
