Archspire Announce Spring “Tech Trek II” Tour with Arkaik


Archspire Arkaik TourDoes March qualify as spring? Small-talk common wisdom says that it does: it’s the month to which people look forward to for the arrival of warmer weather. But I think that all boils down to wishful thinking. March is COLD. Every March people remark how they can’t believe how cold it still is, and isn’t spring coming already??? No, it’s not. March is always this cold, you just forget/deny it! Snow is very common in the month of March, at least if you live in a place where it snows a lot in winter. It even snows in April sometimes.

Yes, this is the kind of thing I think about. It’s quite a life us metal bloggers lead.

Anyhoo, Archspire and Arkaik will embark on a tour towards the end of this winter, and by the time they get home it’ll be getting on into spring. So, if you need a brutal tech-death fix to accompany the change of seasons — or if you just need one, period — well, have at it! Dates:
