Into Eternity to tour with Symphony X and Epica
Official press release: Extreme progressive metal leaders Into Eternity will join Symphony X and Epica for a month-long North American trek next spring. The tour, which kicks off on April 4th, will mark the start of the worldwide touring cycle for the much anticipated new Into Eternity album. An exclusive Internet presale is currently available through Nov. 24th. Tim Roth (guitars, vocals) states: "The whole band is blown away to be touring with Symphony X! What a way to kick off the new album cycle. I look forward to seeing Epica as well. This is going to be a heavy tour with lots of high singing and shredding, and an amazing package for the fans to see! "When we were writing Buried In Oblivion in 2002/2003, we listened to a lot of Symphony X. They were an influence on our band for sure. We met Russell [Allen, Symphony X vocalist] at a gig on the Dream Theater tour this summer. Then he came to one of our shows on the Edguy tour, where we hung with him and got wasted on our RV! Thanks to Russell and the guys for going to bat for us and getting us on this package. Hopefully Micheal Romeo will show me a few licks at some point in the tour!" Into Eternity are currently hard at work on material for their new recording, which guitarist/vocalist Tim Roth says will be the group’s first conceptual album. The Scattering of Ashes campaign saw the band embark on five North American tours with highlights including an appearance on Gigantour performing alongside Megadeth and Lamb of God, but it was this past summer’s tour alongside Dream Theater that really saw the band reach out to a new audience.
