Meshuggah Celebrating 25th Anniversary With North American Tour
We already knew that Meshuggah would be coming to the U.S. this summer to play Bonnaroo. Now they have announced a whole slate of North American dates, dubbed the ’25 Years of Deviance’ tour.
The trek kicks off June 6 in Los Angeles with opening band Between the Buried and Me. Meshuggah have planned a special set for this tour, with songs from throughout their career, including rare tracks that haven’t been played live in quite a while.
They are also giving fans a chance to vote on what songs they would like to hear. To cast your vote, visit their Facebook page. Time is running out, with voting scheduled to end on Wednesday (April 2).
The band says, “Who would have thought, huh!? That our small group of young guys would get to — not only write and record our own quirky, deviant style of metal — but that we would still be doing it a quarter century later, making our living off of what we love to do!! Now in our forties, we can’t help but look back at it jaw-dropped and baffled at the fact!!
Meshuggah’s eighth studio album ‘Koloss’ was released in 2012 and landed at No. 17 on the Billboard 200 album chart.
