Periphery, Human Abstract, etc. tour announced
Periphery will headline a tour of North America in September and early-October dubbed the "Frak The Gods" tour. The tour will also feature The Human Abstract, Textures, and The Contortionist. Dates have yet to be announced. Periphery guitarist Misha Mansoor comments: "We are really excited to be announcing our very first North American headlining run. It is called the 'Frak The Gods' tour. We feel so lucky to be able to have our buddies in The Human Abstract as direct support to us. They will be followed by Textures, whom we all love dearly, and who will be coming to the U.S. for the first time ever! Last, but definitely not least, we have the wonderful dudes from The Contortionist rounding off this fun little package. The dates are still being worked out but the tour will be from early September to early October and it will also hit a few Canadian locations as well because we love you guys too. Needless to say, this is definitely a tour by musicians for musicians. With that said, all fans of progressive music, musician or not, will enjoy this tour greatly. We hope to see you guys at the shows."
