Walkerton, ON melodic metallers Odium, who released latest album "Burning The Bridges To Nowhere" on Year of The Sun Records earlier this April, have announced upcoming show dates in the province of Ontario in promotion of the 10 track anthem chanter, which is the follow up to the band's debut full-length "At The Bottom." Dates for the trek are below, and the following press release was also issued about the band:

"Founded in 2006 by drummer Joe Mullen and vocalist Tom Emmans, Odium was born in order to create a focused project centered on the themes of growth and attrition. After being joined by bassist Dale Burrows and guitarists Bo Louther and Andrew Fullerton, it was clear the band was quickly becoming a cohesive group of musicians that had found their strengths in each other’s abilities to contribute to the writing process.

"Most convincing is Odium’s arsenal of musical weapons that contribute to their overall sound, which was properly harnessed by Canadian producer Greg Dawson (The End, Moneen, Choke) on both of Odium's metal opus' underlining the quintet’s penchant for writing metal songs that are as heartfelt as they are heavy with Odium’s emotional hybrid of epic crescendos and fiery heaviness. Over the years, Odium has opened for such well known bands as Alexisonfire, The Agonist, Beneath the Massacre, Divinity, Moneen, Fuck the Facts, Fairwell to Freeway and Arise and Ruin."
