MESHUGGAH postpones European tour until 2022, adds extra shows
Swedish extreme tech-metal pioneers MESHUGGAH have been forced to postpone their European headline tour due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty that all regions in Europe will be able to restore and provide a safe environment for concerts this fall.
The band states: “The good news is that special guests ZEAL & ARDOR will still be part of the tour and will also be added to the line up for the Royal Albert Hall show in London, and that additional shows in Dublin, Cologne and Nancy have now been added to the routing. Ruhrpott Metal Meeting, being a festival with fixed dates, cannot be rescheduled.”
Tickets will remain valid from the 2021 dates.
Earlier this year, MESHUGGAH entered Sweetspot Studios in Sweden to record its ninth studio album.
MESHUGGAH’s latest album, “The Violent Sleep Of Reason”, came out in 2016 and resulted in a “Best Metal Performance” Grammy nomination for the song “Clockworks”. The disc was produced by the band and was engineered by Tue Madsen of Puk Studios in Kaerby, Denmark.
Last October, MESHUGGAH drummer Tomas Haake confirmed to Knotfest.com‘s “Mosh Talks With Beez” that the band had spent much of the downtime during the COVID-19 pandemic working on material for a new album.
