Invidia To Hit The Road With Wednesday 13

It may sound trite, but Invidia is truly a brotherhood. Each member of this brotherhood has a story that reflects the quote above. When the band came together to make "As The Sun Sleeps" (Steamhammer/Oblivion/SPV), each member knew just what they didn't want and how far they were willing to go to make it work on their terms. Invidia features current members of Five Finger Death Punch and Skinlab.

Recently, Invidia announced the addition of Evan Seidlitz as the newest member of the band, replacing vocalist Travis Johnson. Seidlitz is no stranger to the frontman spotlight, known for his work in Vyces, Thrown Into Exile and Grimace. The band is very excited to be on this new journey with Seidlitz and has no doubts that fans will be pleased with what he has to bring to the table.

Hot on the heels of the release of the debut record, Invidia is set to return to the road this summer first in support of Wednesday 13 through July. Then following a quick break the band will devastate the nation again as part of the Metal Alliance Tour alongside Overkill, Crowbar, Havok and Black Fast. A complete list of all dates can be found below.

Bassist Matt Snell cannot wait to get back out on the road with Invidia: "When offered the Wednesday 13 tour we were thrilled... for us it's a total 90 degree turn and a unique challenge as a band. We are all fans of Wednesday 13, and we know we have the goods... its just time to deliver! Get your creepy on!"

He continues: "The Metal Alliance tour is yet another dream come true for us. Having opened for Overkill myself when I was just a kid in River Grove IL, in 1994, I can only hope to have the Overkill guys sign my tour flyer from that show. But more important for us as a band is the significance of festivals that stray just enough from the mainstream to remind us all that music is art!"

Confirmed dates are as follows: More...

"His name is Ray Peterson, and has been playing bass for over 30 years. Ray was also one of Jaco Pastorius top students, and believe me, it fucking shows!!! Ray has also just finished writing an Advanced Bass Technique book soon to be published once all revisions have been made. It features pieces such as Bach, Beethoven and tons of solos that Jaco Pastorius himself had played in his live years. More info on that soon to come." More...
