Guitarist Chris Letchford commented: "We're touring with Between The Buried And Me, Cynic and Devin Townsend! We have been wanting to tour with Between The Buried And Me for years now. The second I heard news of Cynic reforming and hearing their amazing new album, I never thought a package like this would come together, very glad their back! Then there is Devin Townsend. The last time I saw Devin play was with Strapping Young Lad when I was 16, which was over 9 years ago! Never would have thought we'd tour together. This tour is not one you'll want to miss. Best tour of 2010 by far!"
