The band has been assaulting eardrums for over twenty years, and is preparing for the Aug. 19 launch of Death Resonance, a collection rarities and unreleased tracks next week. Prior to that Soilwork released The Ride Majestic in 2015 and The Living Infinite in 2013, two albu in Providence, R.I. and extends until Nov. 11 in Toronto. Most regions are included in the plan, although the only Canadian shows are the last two in the routing, in Ottawa and Toronto. There is also a stop planned in Flint, Michigan, which will hopefully give metalheads in the city a brief escape from the effects of its ongoing water crisis.
The band is booked through March of 2017 in Europe after this run, so if you’ve been wanting to see the band, you might not want to wait. Soilwork is also in Europe for the rest of August and tours Latin America for most of September.
Also on the bill is Unearth, which has made a name for itself in the metal world in its 15-plus years slaying shows. The band is currently writing the follow up to its 2014 album Watchers of Rule, so fans might be treated to some new stuff if they are lucky.
