Looks Like That Karnivool + The Contortionist Spring Tour Isn’t Gonna Happen After All

Three weeks ago we speculated that Australian wonder-rockers Karnivool were planning a U.S. tour with The Contortionist this spring based on a date featuring both bands that had been announced in Dallas. Stranger things have happened, but it seemed unlikely Karnivool would travel all that way and spend all that money for one club show, and the lineup seemed like a good match.

Unfortunately it now seems as if such a tour is not to be. MetalSucks reader Blayne S., who initially tipped us off to the Dallas show, now writes to tell us that he just received an email saying the show’s been canceled and his money’s been refunded. This could be an instance of Karnivool and/or the tour not being able to put a proper routing together in time but, based on the fact that only one date was ever announced, it seems way more likely that an overzealous promoter jumped the gun, or somehow had his wires crossed as to how firm the show was.

Which is all a bummer. It’s been way too long since Karnivool hit the U.S., and a pairing with The Contortionist would’ve been a great match.

Speaking of The Contortionist, the whole band took over the official MetalSucks Instagram account yesterday from the road on their current trek with Revocation, Fallujah and Toothgrinder; get dates here.
