Strapping Young Lad: Cool support bands!
After the release of SYL´s last killer album “Alien” end of March & a massive US tour together with The Agony Scene, Misery Signals & Reflux, the boys will cross the Atlantic Ocean in order to promote this perfect piece of chaos over here!
Read Devin Townsend´s message:
This is Devin Townsend, and I'd like to thank you all on behalf of myself and SYL for the positive response on the new record. We are coming to Europe for a quick stop with hopefully a full tour later in the year. Our current tours have been a success, and we are able to represent our new album accurately live. If we come to your town, we hope to see you!
Devin and SYL.”
