Happy 25th, Meshuggah!

A dozen North American cities should prepare for an incredible experience coming their way in June courtesy of “the ninth wonder of the unnatural way.” We’re talking about a 25th anniversary tour from the one and only Meshuggah.

The Swedish extreme metal quintet is celebrating 25 years since its first official release – the band’s self-titled 1989 EP.

The group plans on playing selections from their entire catalog, up through its latest full-length album, 2012’s Koloss.
