Forty Winters Kicking Off "The Blackout Tour" Tonight

South Florida heavy metal outfit Forty Winters will kick off its headlining "The Blackout Tour" tonight in August, GA with support from A Fight For Life, After Me The Flood (9/25-10/21) and Fero Lux (9/18-9/20).

The band has updated its routing for the run, which will wrap up in late October. A list of confirmed dates can be seen below.

"Touring, in general, is something we get super stoked about - the experience overall is what we look forward to," said vocalist, Xavier Vicuna. "Just getting in the van and going...Also, In N Out Burger. After the headliner we should be hitting up the East Coast to visit some familiar hot spots and then trek it over to Central America for some Costa Rica and Panama dates. A new video may surface by the end of the year as well. Keep those eyes peeled!"

The band recently recorded three new songs with Charles J. Wall and Phil Pluskota at Sonic Assault Studios in Cape Coral, Fla. (Betraying The Martyrs, Abiotic, King Conquer).

"We really tried to warp our roots and influences into a newer, more aggressive approach," added Vicuna. "We've grooved, we've jammed and we've dropped it, but the goal has always been to evolve. The new stuff is pretty evil and a lot more genuine; we really focused on being ourselves and doing what felt natural. It's gonna be pretty raw - a lot of slamming and thrashing."
