Mos Generator‘s ‘Shadowlands‘ album was released earlier this year through France’s Listenable Records. This trio of heavy rock road dogs is now set to embark on a two-month round of headline tour dates starting next month in support of their ‘Shadowlands‘ release.
Their Spring ‘Road Rats Tour‘, included sixteen dates supporting Fu Manchu [photos here], as well as an appearance at the 2018 edition of Hellfest in Clisson, France. Mos Generator now confirm an aggressively scheduled bucket of 19 U.S. and Canadian headline tour dates for September and October 2018.
UPDATED! We have updated all tour events with links and also have a video tour teaser. These latest dates, in what seem to be endless touring runs for Mos Generator, also include a headline slot at the Riff Relevant-sponsored DESCENDANTS OF CROM weekend event in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, as well as a rare show in my very own home city of Albany, New York.
Find the full list of the new Mos Generator dates at the bottom (updated as of today – 9/5), along with links for multiple options to snag a copy of ‘Shadowlands‘ for yourself. Hell, get two or three, Christmas is coming! If you’ve yet to hear it, you’re missing out – it’s a fantastic album [read our review]. You can stream the album in full on the Spotify embed right here:
Some comments from Mos Generator‘s founding guitarist and vocalist Tony Reed:
“This will be our first time out on the road with the new album Shadowlands at the merch table. We were hoping to have them on the Road Rats tour with Fu Manchu in May but that didn’t happen, so we’ll make it up to you here and make sure to bring plenty. We will be playing a large majority of the new material as well and that’s a treat for us. This is also our first tour across Canada. There are some hard drives, but we are excited to get to those territories.”
