The Montreal-based deathcore six-piece Despised Icon recently completed a massive Canadian tour alongside Ion Dissonance this past month in support of The Healing Process, their highly acclaimed new album. The band will make their first appearance in the U.S. at the Maryland Deathfest late May leading them directly into their first national U.S. tour alongside Deicide, Immolation, Skinless and With Passion.

Alex Erian (vocals) checks in with the following report:

We just got back from our Canadian tour and we had a great time with our bros in Ion Dissonance. We pretty much started out at the same time and have also shared numerous bands/projects in the past with those guys, so it was definitely awesome to be able to tour with them for the first time. I guess you could say that we're lucky as hell these days because our first U.S. tour will be with none other than Deicide, Immolation, Skinless and With Passion. I can't wait and you can bet lives will be taken. Cheers to all the cool people we met on the road.

Despised Icon's 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 is a relentless slab of sheer aggression matched with impeccable time changes that quickly raises the bar for their peers.
