Recently returning to Colorado in September from touring with Otep, Butcher Babies and One Eyed Doll, Arcanium has been home headlining festivals such as Wyoming’s “Zombie fest”, opening as direct support for acts such as Static-X and Gemini Syndrome, headlining hometown shows and writing new music for later release.
The time for Arcanium to hit the road is here again, and starts this November 30th in Dallas, TX, with dates as direct support for International act Ill Niño. The tour will also include headlining dates throughout, and will continue on through January, with dates as direct support for heavy metal super group Dirge Within (former members of Soil and Divine Heresy). “Our live show will resurrect the excitement for heavy metal that you may have lost over the years”, says the band’s lead guitarist Adam. “We will remind you of why you fell in love with heavy guitars, loud drums, howling screams and headbanging in the first place”. Arcanium has toured with household names such as Megadeth, Bullet for my Valentine, Machine Head, Suicide Silence and more. They plan to tour vigorously through the end of 2012, all of 2013 and have a new release on it’s way entitled “Ontogenesis”, tentatively scheduled for release in the coming months. A sampler release of this album entitled “F*ck Y*u EP” is available for purchase from the band’s website at . Additional dates will be added to this tour as they become available.
