Unexpect Announces European Tour Dates

Montreal's UNEXPECT, who just played at the inaugural HEAVY MTL festival held at Parc Jean-Drapeau in Montreal, Quebec, has posted an update on how the show went, European tour dates and work on a new album.

"Thanks to everyone who gave us one of the most adrenaline-giving-overstimulating moment of our life at the Heavy MTL Fest in Montreal last Saturday! The whole day has been a major success and the 22,500 people present should be given an award for surviving such a punishment by Mr. Sun. North America now has its own powerful metal fest that should be an annual event from now on!

"...coming next is our headlining festival in St.Paul on June 28th! Flight of the Valkyries will be a real summer treat.

"We finally have some confirmed dates for our European tour in late 2008 with Sebkha-Chott! Some of those shows include a performance at Germany's Freak Parade with labelmates Sleepytime Gorilla Museum and legendary band Magma...and a prog festival in Algeria with Pain of Salvation. The rest of the schedule is under confirmation process and should be revealed over the next weeks.

"Composition for the new album is going pretty well and should satisfy all of you alien souls and kindred spirits of the unusual...Ok...now let's go for a stamp snack..."
