And this time we’re headed to the West coast! Also, we will be performing in wonderful Mexico City for the first time! We cannot express how excited we are to finally be able to announce these dates as it has been a long time coming. See you all soon on the West coast leg of the Theories Of Flight tour 2018!”

As previously announced, all of the European shows will be recorded for an upcoming live release, which makes the dates very special.

In January we'll be recording a series of shows in some of our favorite European cities. The best of these will be included in a live album to be released in 2018. While we haven't decided on the final set list yet we're planning on about a 2 hour set with as little overlap as possible with the 'Still Life album.' Hope to see you all there!”

Alder added: "We’re excited to be returning to Europe in 2018 for these special shows! Thanks to you, our incredible fans, for making “Theories...” such a success. We could not have done it without you! See you in 2018!"
