North American PAIN and ORPHANED LAND fans, it is time to rejoice! PAIN is a Swedish heavy/industrial metal band lead by the one and only talented Peter Tägtgren, who is a multi instrumentalist and leads Hypocrisy, a death metal band and has also joined forces with Till Lindemann from Rammstein in a side project named Lindemann. ORPHANED LAND from Israel combines heavy metal with oriental music keeping intact their indigenous middle eastern musical elements which adds an exotic twist to it. So, these two excellent bands are ready for a North American tour spanning over a fortnight as they break their virginity of touring on this side of the world for the very first time. Starting the maiden tour off in Atlanta and across 12 more cities with the tour coming to an end in the Hollywood city of Los Angeles, CA, it only is left to witness it unfold how exciting this tour turns out to be. The tour is slated to be in September.
“Painheads of America and Canada! We’re happy to finally be doing a North American tour together with Orphaned Land. Be there or be square. It might be the only chance to see Pain on this continent!“
The band will be touring in support of their latest record, ‘Coming Home‘, which was released last year via Nuclear Blast.
