Orphaned Land and Pain announce North American tour
Century Media Records/YouTube
It’s been seven years since Israeli metal outfit Orphaned Land toured North America. The outfit have made their way to Florida for the yearly 70000 Tons of Metal cruise on three separate occasions, but those unlucky to grab tickets were stuck watching YouTube clips of their performances. After reading all of the emails and comments, yesterday, the outfit revealed plans to finally come back to the region towards the end of summer.
Orphaned Land’s North American headlining tour kicks off with a performance at ProgPower USA inside the Center Stage in Atlanta with Between the Buried and Me, Metal Church, and Twilight Force. For their headlining tour, Orphaned Land won’t be the only anticipated performance. Hailing from Sweden, industrial metal outfit Pain became a powerhouse in their homeland with the albums Nothing Remains the Same and Dancing with the Dead. Pain mastermind Peter Tägtgren is no stranger to performing in North America; as the frontman for metal outfit Hypocrisy, he has toured the area numerous times, but this will be his first time touring here under the Pain moniker. Chinese metal outfit Voodoo KungFu will be the opening act.
Tickets for Orphaned Land’s headlining tour will go on sale this week. You can check out their entire tour routing below. The outfit will be releasing the follow up to 2013’s All Is One by the end of 2017.
