Soilwork Announce 54-date North American Tour with Jeff Loomis

0

Soilwork 2012

One of the reasons double-ex-Soilwork guitarist Peter Wichers gave for leaving the band (both times!) was his stated distate for long tours. So it’s no surprise that since he’s now out of the band once again, the Swedish melodeath veterans have announced a monstrous, 54-date North American tour, the likes of which would grind down most men half their age. Whether the tour will coincide with the release of Soilwork forthcoming double-album The Living Infinite is anyone’s guess, but it certainly seems likely seeing as they started recording that album two months ago already.

Jeff Loomis, Blackguard, The Browning, and Wretched will support Soilwork on the trek. We’re super-stoked to see Loomis perform once again and think this is a perfect touring match for him. Blackguard and Wretched could be fun, too, but… whose dicks are the gentlemen in The Browning sucking to get so many awesome tours? Which one of these bands is not like the others?

In case you missed it, check out the interview we did with Soilwork drummer Dirk Verbeuren this past June in which he discusses Peter Wichers’ second departure from the band.
