Toronto based death metal band HALLOWS DIE have announced they will be once again traveling across Canadian soil as they have arranged for over 30 shows spanning their home nation this summer 2012.
Beginning with a headlining appearance at the Touch of Death Festival on Canada Day weekend, the band will quickly make tracks through the Maritime provinces headlining shows before sharing the stage with the likes of KATAKLYSM and BLACKGUARD on July 6th. Late July and August will see the band venture right across the country to play a string of dates across Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia, including a three day stint on Vancouver Island before returning home. It will be the groups third time touring across their home country of Canada, and as 2012 is the apparent year of the Mayan apocalypse, this journey has been aptly titled End Of The World Canadian Tour.
The tour will also serve as the final pre-promotion shows for the band sophomore album, Masks, which the band has been rigorously working on for the past eight months. Once again employing the services of legendary producer Dan Swano, the album intends to break genre lines and combine an eccentric mix of different extreme metal genres. Barring any last minute delays, the full length album should be available in stores and online September 28th. A four track preview EP, titled Androids, will be available for purchase at all tour dates this summer.
