THE CONTORTIONIST to Co-Headline ‘Slaughter Survivors Tour’ This Summer – Featuring Conducting From The Grave, Scale The Summit and More!

Set to Support Veil of Maya on Brief Summer Tour, Including Hometown Dates in Indiana!

Indianapolis, Indiana’s prog-metal prodigies THE CONTORTIONIST have just announced brand new co-headlining tour dates on the SLAUGHTER SURVIVORS TOUR with Conducting From The Grave, Scale The Summit, Rings Of Saturn, Volumes, and Structures. The tour begins with a kick-off party in Hollywood, CA at the Key Club on July 21st. See below for all current tour dates.

The band recently announced tour dates with Veil of Maya to their summer touring schedule. The short run will take the guys through Illinois and Indiana on four dates in June. As mentioned above, the band is native to Indianapolis, IN and seldom performs live in the area, so this tour serves as an excellent and rare opportunity to witness the band in their hometown!

THE CONTORTIONIST released their debut full-length, Exoplanet, with GOOD FIGHT MUSIC on August 31st, 2010. Their infectious, progressive and rhythmic sounds have brought them comparisons to some of today’s metal greats, such as Meshuggah, The Acacia Strain, and Between the Buried and Me.
