Evergrey Kicking Off North American Tour Dates

Swedish metallers Evergrey are officially kicking off their North American tour today in Atlanta, GA as part of the Prog Power Festival. Following their Prog Power performance, Evergrey will be criss-crossing North America through October 12th with support coming from The Abscense, Sabaton, and Powerglove.

Drummer Hans Van Dahl is ready to take on North America and commented, "Man, It´s been quite a while since Evergrey polluted the North American ears last time! Now we´re out with a new record called 'GLORIOUS COLLISION' and all I can tell you that we're super psyched to crush every venue on this North American collision tour down to the ground"

Guitarist and vocalist Tom Englund also commented on the band's lineup changes, "The most recent Evergrey line-up had reached a point where we no longer had fun as a group," he confesses, adding: "So we went our separate ways to save our friendship. There were no angry words, and we're still friends privately. In the beginning, we weren't sure whether we'd be able to write a new album without the wealth of experience that the previous line-up brought in. But after [keyboardist] Rikard and I had composed a full three numbers during the first week, we felt that was a real coup."

"This may sound like a contradiction in view of our personnel situation," said Tom, "but Rikard and I have allowed more influences on 'Glorious Collision' than ever before. Some elements on 'Glorious Collision' are classic rock, based on a metal format; sometimes the tracks are quiet and haunting, sometimes wild, demanding and gripping."
