Betraeus Announces Irish Tour Dates

2011 was a big year for Betraeus, with a Download Festival appearance, releasing the "Towards the Sun" EP on Siege of Amida Records, and embarking on a debut UK tour. With no intention of slowing, the Manchester prog-metallers are ready to take on 2012 and have set their sights on the rest of the world. First stop – Ireland!

Betraeus will play three shows across the country with Spires in support, and Ireland’s rock mag, Molten Magazine, are joining them for the ride as official media sponsors. Check them out on the following dates:

22 March - The Blind Pig - Limerick
23 March - The Pint - Dublin
24 March - The Limelight - Belfast

The following press release was also issued about the band:

"For those who have yet to check them out, Betraeus fuse chopping riffs and blasting rhythms with intense atmosphere and have an immense talent for fusing brutality with beauty. December’s EP release catapulted them to the forefront of the UK underground, with achievements including a number three slot in in the the Scuzz TV most requested chart for the title track's video, but also a 'band of the day' feature on broadsheet The Guardian's website. Check out the video to the EP's title track here.

"The band first displayed their diversity on a big scale at Bloodstock 2010, when they played a brutal set on 'New Blood' stage as well as a more mellowing session on the acoustic stage. Check out the acoustic performance of 'Blossom The Void' at the festival here."
