Rivers of Nihil Announce Spring Headlining Tour With Fallujah, Alluvial, and Warforged


Man, unorthodox death metallers Rivers of Nihil really did right with last year’s The Work, which earned a #1 spot on MetalSucks editor Axl Rosenberg’s best-of list. Now, the band have announced that they plan to take that epic album on the road with a spring headlining tour that kicks off this May. Not only that, but they’re also bringing a rad list of openers with them.

Playing alongside Rivers of Nihil are a bunch of equally ambitious and uncommon acts: Fallujah, Alluvial, and Warforged. The jaunt pops off in Brooklyn before looping south, curling up through the west coast and southwest, and then finishing things up in the Rust Belt.

Along the way, the trek will intersect with Hypocrisy’s currently-scheduled tour with Carach Angren, The Agonist and Hideous Divinity at Come And Take It Live in Austin, so things will no doubt get super fucking crazy in Texas.
