Inter Arma Comments On Upcoming Shows

Richmond, Virginia's tour-incessant tonal decimation crew Inter Arma recently announced the confirmation of a maiden European trek, now set to take place just after the already looming U.S. tour with Russian Circles and KEN Mode, which is less than two weeks from embarking.

Inter Arma guitarist Trey Dalton commented: "We've heard nothing but pretty incredible things about how awesome it can be touring in Europe, and needless to say we're very ready to experience that for ourselves. We're most definitely looking forward to playing at Roadburn as we're basically pals with half the bands playing, not to mention that we'll be with some of our best friends in Windhand for the majority of the tour. That being said, I think we're pretty excited about all of the shows. Most of us haven't done a lot of international traveling at all so this is a pretty righteous opportunity."

While still touring in support of the "Sky Burial" LP, the name of Inter Arma's recently recorded EP has been announced as "The Cavern," which encompasses a sprawling forty minutes of material. A final release date and further details on "The Cavern" EP will be released upon its completion. Catch Inter Arma live:
