Despised Icon Frontman Talks About European Tour

DESPISED ICON vocalist Alex Erian has commented on the band's upcoming European tour with MISERY INDEX as well as BENEATH THE MASSACRE, MAN MUST DIE (mainland Europe only), and ANNOTATIONS OF AN AUTOPSY (UK only).

"After months of planning, this tour is finally coming together!" he said. We can’t wait to tour Europe and the UK again and share the tour bus and stage everyday with MISERY INDEX and our homies from Montreal, BENEATH THE MASSACRE! I think we haven't played with any of those dudes in at least a year, should be sick. Make sure you come early to check out ANNOTATIONS OF AN AUTOPSY and MAN MUST DIE; two killer bands. Thanks to our buddy Marco (Avocado Booking) for working hard on this.

"We have about 70 shows lined-up in Canada, USA, UK and Europe in the next 4 months and will be taking a short break after that to write part of the next album so make sure you show up to the nearest show!

"Our new video for the track 'Furtive Monologue' will premiere on our MySpace November 1st. In the meantime, check out the trailer we just posted for the video [below]."

DESPISED ICON recently completed a fourth tour of North America in support of its highly acclaimed new album "The Ills of Modern Man". The band will cap off an extremely successful year as part of the "Crashing Through the Holidays" tour alongside THE ACACIA STRAIN, FULL BLOWN CHAOS and the TONY DANZA TAPDANCE EXTRAVAGANZA, which kicks off on November 24. This will be preceded by an extensive Canadian run on the Canadian tour with THE LOCUST.

Dubbed the "Carving Europe's Epitaph Vol. II" tour, the bill is rounded out by BURNING SKIES opening the first half of the tour while U.S. act DISKREET will be opening up the second half of the tour.
