The Augusta, Maine based metal sextet will hit the road in February for the band's first Canadian run of dates and will then meet up with the legendary Atheist. The band will also be appearing at this year's New England Metal and Hardcore Festival in Worcester, MA on April 16.
Last Chance To Reason teamed up with producer Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me) to create the album, which draws influences from the 70's prog of King Crimson and Yes, composers Steve Reich and Schoenberg, as well as prog-metal masters Opeth, Dream Theater, and Cynic.
Set in a Tron-like virtual world, the album's concept revolves around the relationship between man and technology, our move from physical reality to virtual spaces and what these changes mean to our lives and our art. The lyrics are expressed from the point of view of an artificial intelligence facing the violent reality of a video game world.
The full list of bands and dates for which they will appear has been announced for the forthcoming New England Metal And Hardcore Festival. The 2011 edition of the event is set to take place between Thursday April 14, Friday April 15, and Saturday April 16 at the Palladium in Worcester, Massachussets. The festival lineup is as follows:
