June 7, 2019, a year ago
Montréal based melodic death metallers, Kataklysm, will kick off their Meditations Over North America 2019 tour on September 4 in Joliet, IL. The 21-date trek will make stops Portland, Dallas and Baltimore before concluding in Worcester on September 26.
Joining the band as special guests are thrash legends and label-mates Exhorder, death metal kings Krisiun, and San Francisco Bay Area thrashers Hatchet.
Kataklysm frontman Maurizio Iacono comments, “It took a while for us to get a full North American tour put together for Meditations due to an extensive schedule and also the arrival of my little boy earlier this year. But, we are finally here and with a hell of a package this time. We are very excited to share the stage with the legendary Exhorder; Slaughter of the Vatican is one of my all time favourite records. And to round off the package having our brothers in Krisiun with us and the thrash outfit Hatchet is gonna make this a memorable tour. We will play a varied set of the bands discography and of course. our latest album Meditations, all wrapped up in a devastating live show as only Kataklysm can deliver. It's gonna be sick. See you all very soon."
Ticket for the tour will go on sale on Wednesday, June 12 at 10 AM, local time.
