Hypocrisy Tour 2013

Spring is almost upon us, and lucky for you spring = touring season. Get ready to be overwhelmed by all the excellent shows coming to your town in the coming months.

The great Hypocrisy have a new album called End of Disclosure coming out on March 22 via Nuclear Blast; peep the most excellent title track right here. But in all my snarky, jaded days I have never seen this band live. And I’m still not gonna be able to: I’ll be out of town when they come through NYC in May (d’oh!). But that shouldn’t stop you from seeing these death metal legends live and in the flesh! They’re playing a string of North American dates in May, and they’re bringing Krisiun, Aborted and Arsis with them. That, my friends, is a lineup not worth missing. Autumn’s End and Starkill will also support them on select dates if that means anything to you.

Not to be outdone by a band that’s releasing a new album the same week as theirs, boogie metallers Clutch will be hitting the road — HARD, as is always the case — with nearly three solid months of dates in support of their jammin’ new record Earth Rocker. In addition to the previously announced leg with Orange Goblin, Lionize and Scorpion Child, the band just announced a second leg with The Sword and Lionize, a bill sure to get your booty shakin’ and your head a bangin’. The dudes in Clutch and the dudes in Lionize are gonna be so sick of smelling each others’ farts at the end of this 3-month trek.
