TesseracT, The Contortionist, Erra tour

Official press release: TesseracT will return to North America for a healthy batch of tour dates slated for later this year. The band has tapped The Contortionist as main support along with Erra, and Skyharbor. "Five years ago we bundled ourselves in to a van and set off on our debut North American tour," says bassist Amos Williams. "It was not only our North American debut but also our first major tour, really." Dates will kick off on November 2nd at the Theater for Living Arts in Philadelphia and run coast to coast making a few stops in Canada before wrapping things up at Irving Plaza in New York City on December 7th. Tickets will go on sale Friday, August 21 at 10:00 local time. Fans can visit the band's official website for ticket info. VIP upgrades including band meet and greet options are available for all shows. "We're beyond excited to announce that we're touring with TesseracT," says The Contortionist vocalist Mike Lessard. "They're a band we've always wanted to tour with, so it will be nice to share the road with them finally. This tour is a must see for any progressive fan!" Williams comments again on that first North American run, where they supported Devin Townsend, "We were lucky enough to be supporting the incredible DTP, from whom we learned how to project and perform. It was an experience that none of us will ever forget. Everything about it was intense, from the traveling in a tiny van, or squeezing the whole band into a single Motel 6 room, through to the stunning crowds, and wonderful friends we made. So, a little over 5 years later it is an awesome feeling to return to the US and Canada to headline a tour with that same line up that traveled all the miles, and worked so hard to get TesseracT to where it is today." 11/2 Philadelphia, PA @ TLA 11/3 Boston, MA @ Paradise Rock Club 11/4 Montreal, QC @ Café Campus 11/6 Toronto, ON @ The Phoenix Theater 11/7 Pittsburgh, PA @ Mr. Smalls 11/8 Chicago, IL @ Bottom Lounge 11/9 Minneapolis, MN @ Cabooze 11/11 Winnipeg, MB @ WECC 11/12 Saskatoon, SK @ O'Briens 11/13 Edmonton, AB @ Starlite Room 11/14 Calgary, AB @ Dickens 11/16 Vancouver, BC @ Rickshaw Theatre 11/17 Portland, OR @ Hawthorne 11/18 Seattle, WA @ Chop Suey 11/20 San Francisco, CA @ DNA Lounge 11/21 Anaheim, CA @ House of Blues 11/23 San Diego, CA @ House of Blues 11/24 Los Angeles, CA @ Troubadour 11/25 Phoenix, AZ @ Club Red 11/27 Salt Lake City, UT @ Complex Live 11/28 Denver, CO @ Summit Music Hall 11/29 Albuquerque, NM @ Sunshine Theatre 12/1 Austin, TX @ Empire Control Room 12/2 Dallas, TX @ Trees 12/4 Atlanta, GA @ Masquerade 12/5 Winston-Salem, NC @ Ziggy's 12/6 Baltimore, MD @ Soundstage 12/7 New York, NY @ Irving Plaza
