German technical/progressive metal titans Obscura have announced a four-week headlining European tour in the spring of 2012 in support of their latest album "Omnivium." Support on the tour will come from label-mates Spawn of Possession, French tech-death maestros Gorod, and Dutch metallers Exivious.

The tour will kick-off on March 9th in Stuttgart, Germany then march through Scandinavia, Eastern and Southern Europe, and the UK before returning to Germany on April 7th. A complete listing of dates is listed below. Obscura's Steffen Kummerer commented on the upcoming run:

"We are stoked to announce our upcoming European headlining tour to support our newest album 'Omnivium'! With our label-mates Spawn of Possession, tech-death lunatics Gorod and the fusion influenced Exivious this tour is a must for everyone who is into progressive music. This is the ultimate shredfest of the year!"

Additionally, Obscura recently announced a demo collection entitled "Illegimitation," which will be released by the band this March. The collection will include ten never-before-heard tracks, including the band's earliest recordings from 2003, unreleased songs from the "Cosmogenesis" sessions of 2006, and brand new cover songs with the newest line-up from 2011. The album's track listing, cover art, and numerous, unique packages are available directly from the band now at this location.
