TRIBULATION North American Tour; Select Shows Co-Headline w/ PALLBEARER

Article By: Pat ‘Riot’ Whitaker ‡ Edited By: Leanne Ridgeway

Swedish traditional metallers TRIBULATION announce they will return to North American shores for a touring run this September.

The trek, which kicks off on Sept. 14th in Montreal, Canada will feature a mix of headlining performances, as well as a number of co-headline dates with PALLBEARER. As per comments below, the Montreal, Kansas City (MO), Los Angeles (CA), New Orleans (LA), and the East Coast dates will see TRIBULATION playing without Pallbearer, but support acts are yet to be announced.

This will be the band’s first run in North America in support of their January 2018 album release, the critically acclaimed Century Media Records effort, “Down Below“.

TRIBULATION commented on these upcoming plans, stating:

“We are at last heading back over the Atlantic Ocean to the New World, this time to its northerly part that is the great North America. How we’ve waited! Along for the ride this time we have the mighty and the very heavy Pallbearer to close each evening, deepening the Dionysian spirit that we, hopefully, have managed to spark in you. Montreal, Kansas City, Los Angeles, New Orleans and the East Coast will see us playing without Pallbearer with support acts yet to be announced and with us closing each night. We urge you to join us in these nocturnal festivities where both bands will be playing long sets. The tickets go on sale on Friday, get yours while you can!

PALLBEARER also offered a statement:

After a long period of constant touring behind Heartless, it’s almost time for us to settle into the cold season and begin crafting our next musical endeavor. But before that, we are heading out once more across North America to bring this chapter to its conclusion. We look forward to stretching out our sets each night on this double bill with Tribulation, revisiting some songs from our past and adding extra layers to newer material.
