Psychedelic Prog Black Metaller HAIL SPIRIT NOIR, whose third full-length album “Mayhem in Blue” was released on Dark Essence Records in late 2016, have announced their first European tour, covering nine dates during the latter half of April, and including an appearance at the Roadburn Festival.
Commenting on the tour, and what fans could expect, the band had this to say:
‘’It’s the first time we embark on a tour in Europe and we really can’t wait to meet all you music maniacs on the road. Be prepared for an intense show based on improvisation, and the transformation of some of our old tracks”.
Routing for the April tour is as follows:
20.4: Temple, Athens, Greece
22.4: Roadburn, 013, Tilburg, Netherlands
23.4: Le Midlan, Lille, France (with Mortier)
24.4: Le Klub , Paris, France (with Glorior Belli)
25.4: Oetinger Villa, Darmstadt, Germany (with Fallen Tyrand and The Invasion)
26.4: Spazio Ligera , Milan, Italy (with Sannhet and Sum of R)
28.4: Magnetofon, Lodz, Poland
29.4: Chemiefabrik, Dresden, Germany
Formed in Thessaloniki, Greece, in 2010, and describing their music as “psychoprog black metal whose sound is “retro, yet modern”, HAIL SPIRIT NOIR’s lineup includes Haris (KATAVASIA, TRANSCENDING BIZARRE?) on Synths, Theoharis (TRANSCENDING BIZARRE?, REX MUNDI,) on guitars and vocals, and J Demian (BLACKDRAWN, DOL AMMAD, WARDRUM TRANSCENDING BIZARRE?) on bass and acoustic guitars.
Once the tour is finished, the band intend to focus on writing their much-anticipated next album.
