Almost a year ago, Australian prog band Ne Obliviscaris launched a crowdfunding campaign to finance a world tour, which was a massive success when it surpassed its goal in less than 48 hours with the promise of using the extra money to add more dates to the schedule. The good news is, the tour is already set to happen and the dates and cities have been finally revealed; the bad news is that none of the dates include a North American city.
The tour will kick off on June 5th, and it will hit 15 countries over the course of 2 months, with a vast majority of the appearances on European festivals so, unless you are planning on attending one of these festivals, you may have to wait a little longer to see the Australians tear your city apart, as they have promised to add more shows to their trek, particularly in North America.
To tease the tour, the band have also released a new video for “Curator” from their latest album Citadel. The video features live footage from their 2014 Australian tour and gives us a good glimpse of what we can expect from the band live.
The dates for the tour are set as follows:
