The Contortionist ‘Reimagined’ Tour Announced

The Contortionist announce a special tour with Intervals for this fall. Dubbed ‘The Reimagined Tour‘, the shows will find The Contortionist performing two different sets each night. Comments keyboardist Eric Guenther:

“The Rediscovered concept was born from a desire to escape and redefine the rules of a show. We want to include our fans in an experience reflective of The Contortionist’s wide range of dynamics, not only on the scale of heaviness or intensity but in tone and texture.

Our goal is to invite the listener closer and show ourselves in a fresh new way for our fans who have evolved with us and embraced our sonic exploration over the years. This is an opportunity to ‘pull out all the stops’ and integrate the crowd into the changing aura of the room as we dig deep, reimagine, and give ever-echoing life to our music.”

Below's where that trek will hit: More...
