7 Horns 7 Eyes Cancels Tour Dates

Due to unforeseen issues concerning 7 Horns 7 Eyes internally, the band has made the decision to pull out of the upcoming tour with Annex Theory this February. In spite of steps taken to try to alleviate these issues, the band will be unable to take part in the tour. However, the run itself is not cancelled and Annex Theory will press on on. Comments 7H7E guitarist Aaron Smith:

"This is certainly not the outcome we had in mind when we announced our participation in this tour, and it's really a bummer to let everyone down who had made plans to come see 7H7E play and to the promoters of the shows as well. There are several factors in our decision to cancel, including unforeseen financial strain, and it was not a decision we made quickly or lightly, but it's definitely the best decision. We fully intend and look forward to rescheduling a similar run of dates in the future (we hope with Annex Theory), so that we can make it up to our Canadian fans! We will not forget!"

7H7E released debut album, "Throes of Absolution," on April 24th, 2012 via Century Media Records in North America. The record features artwork by Travis Smith and a guest appearance by former Nevermore guitarist Jeff Loomis.

Annex Theory's latest EP, "Process Existence," was self-released last May. The effort was mixed and mastered by Travis Montgomery of Threat Signal and features a cover of the Rush track "Subdivisions."

7 Horns 7 Eyes Announces Canadian Tour

Seattle's 7 Horns 7 Eyes has announced the band's first ever Canadian headlining tour with support from Winnipeg's Annex Theory for February 2013. Dubbed the "Throes of Existence Tour" and sponsored by Heavy Blog is Heavy and Stuff You Will Hate, the trek will start in Winnipeg and end in Ottawa.

Commented 7 Horns 7 Eyes guitarist Aaron Smith: "We are excited to be hitting the great frozen hostile wasteland (as Jim Carrey put it), also known as Canada. This is a totally untapped market for us in terms of live performances, and we're looking forward to bringing the show to our Canadian fans alongside Annex Theory! It'll be some very wintry driving for us, so if you live along the tour routing, come on out and give us a proper Canadian welcome!"

Continued vocalist JJ "Shiv" Polachek: "We can't wait to finally hit the great north with such a sick band like Annex Theory! These shows will be special to everyone who attends, because due to the fact that we have to fill up a headlining time slot, we get to play 'Throes of Absolution' in its entirety! So make sure to come out and enjoy some epic BDC jams, and generate some heat by moshing and headbanging your balls off with us! I can't wait to wear ten layers of clothing at all times! Someone please buy me drinks because my Florida blood is thin and I don't know if I can survive a place like Canada! Please respond!"
