With a new album on the way later this month, Nile have announced a 31-date US tour which will start in January of 2016. They won’t be bringing any support acts with them, either. Instead, local bands in each city will be the openers.
Said Karl Sanders about the upcoming tour:
“We are extremely happy to bring our new album What Should not be Unearthed to Nile fans in the states. We will of course be playing a wide variety of classic Nile tunes as well each night as we take this tour to US cities both familiar and new to us. As long time supporters of the metal underground, Nile is also happy to announce that This tour will be further blessed by having local metal bands in each city as support acts.”
Also of note is the last tour stop in their hometown, as it’s been 10 years since the band played in Greenville, South Carolina.
Nile’s latest album, What Should Not Be Unearthed will be out August, 28th on Nuclear Blast, their first since 2012’s At the Gate of Sethu. The band recently released a music video from the album, “Call to Destruction,” which came with a disclaimer saying that the band nor label had any religious or political agenda with the video!
