Voivod announces 2023 Tour Dates with Imperial Triumphant
Fresh off their JUNO Awards nomination for Metal/Hard Music Album Of The Year for 2022’s Synchro Anarchy, progressive sci-fi metal innovators Voivod have announced their return to the US with a run of shows this spring! Featuring labelmates Imperial Triumphant as support, this trek will be part 1 of Voivod’s “40 Years of Morgöth Tales” tour; additionally, the band is currently wrapping up a special studio project release entitled Morgöth Tales to coincide with the anniversary, which will be revealed in detail soon.
Michel “Away” Langevin comments: “We are excited to hit the road in the US in May, with the avant-garde metal band Imperial Triumphant. Snake was a guest vocalist on their track ‘Maximalist Scream,’ and this tour should take us on a great experimental musical journey. Come join us!!”
Imperial Triumphant’s Zachary Ezrin (vocals, guitar) adds: “Voivod is a group that has helped shape the landscape of our dissonant world, and we are most excited and honored to play these shows with them.”
