SIGH, who will embark on their first-ever North American headlining tour this September, has posted an update on their tour dates and what fans can expect from their live performance.

Frontman MIRAI KAWASHIMA says, "We've played several times in the U.S. before, but this is our first full U.S. tour and we're really looking forward to it! This is going to be a great opportunity for our fans to see a full SIGH set. As you know, we're are going out on the road with two great bands: ZIMMERS HOLE and UNEXPECT. I'm a fan of both bands and excited to share the stage with them. Be sure to check out all the tour dates online as there have been a few changes and additions. We hope to see all the SIGH fans out on tour as this has been a long time coming. We're going to play the songs off Hangman's Hymn and there will be lots of older songs in our set list -- and of course some Venom covers! Come see us or you will regret it forever!"

In other news, SIGH's upcoming six-song tribute to legendary black metal band VENOM, titled "Sigh's Tribute to Venom," will feature the bass work of Dan Lilker (BRUTAL TRUTH, NUCLEAR ASSAULT) and Shane Embury (NAPALM DEATH, VENOMOUS CONCEPT)

Here is the "Sigh's Tribute to Venom" tracklisting:

Black Metal
Schizo
