Zeal & Ardor Announce First-Ever North American Tour With Astronoid
Two awesome and expansive acts are headed out on tour together this fall. Both stretching the metal genre into invigorating new directions, Zeal & Ardor and Astronoid will trek through North America beginning in September.
Zeal & Ardor will be hitting the road on the back of Stranger Fruit, the second full-length album from mastermind Manuel Gagneux, which will hit stores June 8. Zeal & Ardor first intrigued metalheads with Devil Is Fine, which mixed black metal, blues and slave chants into a conceptual Satanic brew. Having played a handful of shows in the U.S., Zeal & Ardor will finally spread the gospel on a full headlining tour.
Astronoid first hit our radar in 2016 with the blissful Air. Combining a myriad of dynamics to create their brand of “dream thrash,” Astronoid’s Air got them enough buzz to be brought on tour with Ghost, TesseracT and Ghost Bath, so as fans anxiously await another full-length, they’ll get the chance to hear Air live throughout North America.
Tickets for Zeal & Ardor’s tour with Astronoid go on sale June 8 at 10AM local time. See below for the full list of dates.
