Despised Icon To Embark On Canadian Tour

The Canadian deathcore six-piece Despised Icon will embark on massive Canadian tour alongside Ion Dissonance and Premonitions of War late this month. The band will also make their first appearance in the U.S. at the Maryland Deathfest late May. Look for additional U.S. dates this summer.

Despised Icon's highly anticipated sophomore release, "The Healing Process," was produced by guitarist Yannick St-Amand (Ion Dissonance, Neuraxis), mixed by J-F Dagenais (Misery Index, Kataklysm) and mastered by Alan Douches (Shadows Fall, Dillinger Escape Plan). This album, set for an April 5th release, is a relentless slab of sheer aggression matched with impeccable time changes that quickly raises the bar for their peers.
