VOIVOD Announces EU. Tour To Coincide With New Full-Length Release [Album Details]

(By Pat ‘Riot’ Whitaker, Senior Writer/Journalist, RiffRelevant.com)

Long running Canadian sci-fi / progressive metal band VOIVOD have revealed limited details on their new full-length album release.

Titled “The Wake“, the anxiously anticipated follow-up to 2013’s “Target Earth” album and the 2016 “Post Society” EP, will arrive in late September from Century Media Records.

Drummer Michel “Away” Langevin shared the following: “We are thrilled to let you know that our new album, ‘The Wake’, is completed! The music is like a futuristic prog thrash metal trek with many twists and turns, and the story involves the usual Voivodian topics: disasters, chaos, conflicts, strange plots and alternate consciousness. We are excited with the result and can’t wait to get the material out to you this fall! Also, try to catch us when we tour Europe in September and October. It will be a great opportunity for the band to test some songs from our upcoming album.

We look forward to bringing further revelations – i.e. artwork, tracklist, etc. – about “The Wake” when they become available.

Coinciding with the new release’s arrival this summer, VOIVOD will embark upon a European tour in early September. North Americans can also catch the band at several upcoming festival appearances prior to it, including Heavy MTL and Psycho Las Vegas. Here are all of the dates:
