Supergroup A PERFECT CIRCLE have released a 2D clip of “The Contrarian” along with extended North American tour dates. The clip is from a hologram film, directed by Steven Sebring (Horses: Patti Smith and Her Band, Dream of Life), in companion with their latest record Eat The Elephant. The album-length film is viewable with a prism and is included in the album’s deluxe box set.
The much-anticipated album debuted atop several Billboard charts, obtaining the #1 slot for Rock, Independent and Alternative charts, #2 on the Top Current Albums chart, and #3 album debut on the Top 200.
“It’s been a long f**king time!” shouted front man Alex Erian. In fact, it’s been 11 years since Despised Icon have graced our shores with a headline set – long since 2007’s phenomenal co-headline UK/European tour with Misery Index, Annotations For An Autopsy and Beneath The Massacre. Whilst they have played the UK as recently as 2016, tonight marked a monumental occasion, firmly solidifying the Montreal metallers legacy and dominance over the Deathcore scene. For fans, this headline set may have been a long time coming but ‘The Beast’ is back and fully reawakened!
Following immediately on from their sold-out show in Antwerp, tonight’s performance at The Dome in central London marked the first leg of the UK section of this momentous comeback tour. With only a handful of tickets left on the door of this 500 capacity venue, and subsequent shows at Birmingham and Manchester expected to sell out, it was clear that everyone here was about to witness something very special. With support combining the best tech, hardcore and slam, whoever put this line-up together must be some kind of god-tier genius – for joining alongside Despised Icon were Vulvodynia, Archspire and the UK’s very own Malevolence. Missing this show was not an option!
