KEN Mode Announce North American Tour with Fuck The Facts, Child Bite, Lo Pan, and More

The rotating tour line-up is becoming more and more of a fixture in metal. Depending on where you catch a tour, you might see very different opening acts from the ones on a band’s announcement poster. What sucks is that usually, there’s one leg of a tour with cool openers and one without. No matter what, someone ends up disappointed.

However, KEN mode have just announced a massive North American tour with a rotating cast of openers, and it seems pretty solid across the board. Bands who will play on this tour include Conduct, Child Bite, Fuck The Pacts, Lo Pan, We Are Hex, Life In Vacuum, and one comedian, Garrett Jamieson. In fact, Jamieson is the only opener who appears to be attending all of these shows, but if you’re bringing out a comedian to open for your metal band, you probably don’t just want to bring him in on a smattering of dates.

Anyway: this tour should rule. Check out the dates below to find out when you can see KEN mode and who you’ll be seeing them with:
