The Contortionist Announces U.S. Tour Dates With Jeff Loomis And 7 Horns 7 Eyes

The Contortionist has announced a headlining tour with Jeff Loomis presented by Metalsucks, with additional sponsorship from Royal Family Clothing and Guitar World Magazine. Kicking off in Indianapolis, IN, dates will run through July and August (dates available below, more to be announced soon). Support will come from Chimp Spanner and 7 Horns 7 Eyes.

The Contortionist will also be featured on a handful of dates in this year's Summer Slaughter tour. The band will release new record "Intrinsic" on July 17th, 2012 via eOne/Good Fight Music.

"On 'Intrinsic', we've found ourselves focusing on the songwriting as well as the new textures and melody we're striving for. Each song has its own identity and flow, but the album is fun to listen through in order cause of the conceptual ties," says vocalist / keyboardist Jonathan Carpenter.
