Insomnium announce headline tour dates

After successfully completing an extensive trek with DARK TRANQUILLITY in January, Finnish melodic death metallers INSOMNIUM are excited to announce their return to North America this Summer/Fall for their first ever USA headlining tour! Featuring OMNIUM GATHERUM as direct support, the run kicks off in New York at The Gramercy Theatre. NIILO SEVÄNEN from INSOMNIUM comments: \”We are very happy to return to North America so quickly! With each previous tour we have felt that we\’ve clearly gone forward and gained new fans so now it\’s the right time to bring a full headliner show across the Atlantic Ocean. We are more than happy to be sharing the bus and stage with our fellow Finnish brothers in death metal, the almighty Omnium Gatherum! Killer shows expected every night so get your tickets way in advance. See you all soon!\” MARKUS VANHALA from both bands adds: \”Here\’s the tour that every melodeathmaniac (except my back & neck) have been waiting for – the double trouble Insomnium Gatherum tour in North America! That\’s gonna a hell of a ride thru America and nice times with super dudes as both of my brotherhood camps will be staying in the same bus. The last year\’s Omnium Gatherum North American debut tour was a blast and also a great success, so I\’m really happy to come back also with OG and have another round spin of \”Beyond the World tour\” beyond Atlantic!\” See below for all upcoming dates: INSOMNIUM and OMNIUM GATHERUM tour dates: Aug. 11 – New York, NY – The Gramercy Theatre Aug. 12 – West Springfield, VA – Empire Aug. 13 – Worcester, MA – The Palladium Aug. 14 – Albany, NY – Bogie\’s Aug. 15 – Pittsburgh, PA – Altar Bar Aug. 16 – Westland, MI – Token Lounge Aug. 17 – Joliet, IL – Mojoes Aug. 18 – Minneapolis, MN – 7th Street Entry Aug. 19 – Winnipeg, MB – Zoo Cabaret Aug. 21 – Edmonton, AL – Pawn Shop Aug. 22 – Calgary, AL – Nite Owl Aug. 23 – Vancouver, BC – Red Room Aug. 24 – Seattle, WA – El Corazon Aug. 25 – Portland, OR – Hawthorne Theatre Aug. 26 – San Francisco, CA – Thee Parkside Aug. 27 – Los Angeles, CA – Whiskey a Go Go Aug. 28 – San Diego, CA – Brick By Brick Aug. 29 – Las Vegas, NV – LVCS Aug. 30 – Tempe, AZ – Club Red Sept. 1 – Denver, CO – Bluebird Theater Sept. 3 – Louisville, KY – Expo Five Sept. 4 – Cleveland, OH – Agora Ballroom Sept. 5 – Toronto, ON – Garrison Sept. 6 – Ottawa, ON – Ritual Sept. 7 – Quebec, QC – Le Cercle INSOMNIUM will be touring in support of their latest album, Shadows Of The Dying Sun.
