High On Fire have announced the Electric Messiah tour 2019 in continued support of their new LP released earlier this year.
These dates will be the first time the band has played live since the cancelation of their tour with Municipal Waste earlier this year due to the partial amputation of Matt Pike’s toe.
High On Fire released Electric Messiah last month to some serious critical acclaim. The A.V. Club stated that “The bar for metal album of the year has been raised” and they couldn’t be more correct.
HIGH ON FIRE has released “Spewn From The Earth,” another new single from their upcoming LP, Electric Messiah, exclusively via ADULT SWIM. This is the second and final song the band will release from the new LP due out this Friday.
“Cryogenically frozen giant kings of old, awake and smash through the bowels of Earth to free themselves,” says vocalist and guitarist Matt Pike. “In a campaign to usurp their throne from man, and impregnate the populace once again.”
High On Fire just kicked off a European co-headlining tour this month alongside ENSLAVED. The band will then head back to The States to participate in this year’s Adult Swim Festival this coming weekend at The Row in Downtown Los Angeles before heading back to the UK.
High On Fire will tour in North America this fall on the “Speed of the Wizard” tour, presented by Revolver Magazine. The dates will be co-headlined by MUNICIPAL WASTE with Toxic Holocaust and Haunt in support. The three-week trek will kick off in Dallas, TX at Canton Hill on 11/2/18, hitting both coasts before wrapping up in San Diego, CA on 11/25/18. Tickets are now on sale.
