VOIVOD’s Michel “Away“ Langevin - "We Are Still Floating From Winning Our Very First JUNO" (Video); European Tour Dates Announced

Congratulations are due to Canadian progressive sci-fi metal innovators Voivod, for winning a JUNO Award (Canadian equivalent to the Grammy Awards) for “Metal/Hard Music Album Of The Year” for their current studio effort, The Wake, released via Century Media Records worldwide last September.

After previous nominations for Nothingface in 1991 and Angel Rat in 1993, the 2019 award is a first in the 36 years of Voivod history. See footage from the Juno Gala Dinner & Awards below.

Michel “Away“ Langevin checked in with the following comment: “We are still floating from winning our very first Juno, for our new album The Wake. It is the best source of energy to get ready for the upcoming North American tour with YOB and Amenra. We are also thrilled to go back to Europe this summer!
