MEGATON LEVIATHAN: Oregon Doom Gazers Announce Fall Tour With Wolves In The Throne Room

Portland, Oregon doom gazers, MEGATON LEVIATHAN, will embark upon a two-week East Coast tour with headliners Wolves In The Throne Room. Known for their elaborate stage productions and stunning live visuals, MEGATON LEVIATHAN takes its listeners on a ritualistic journey that transcends far beyond the boundaries of rock ‘n’ roll. The Celestial Lineage tour is set to commence on September 14, 2011 in Washing D.C., and will run in conjunction to the re-release of the band’s 2009 self-titled demo EP, now available on limited-edition vinyl through the band’s own Volatile Rock Records. Offering up 35-minutes of raw, ethereal riffing and postrock atmosphere, the remastered demo is limited to 500 copies.

Said the band in a collective statement: “We are very excited to announce that we will be joining our good friends, Wolves In The Throne Room, on a two-week leg of their upcoming North American Tour in support of their new album, Celestial Lineage. It is especially thrilling because this tour has been booked DIY and we will be playing in underground and off-the-beaten-path spaces. This is very much in keeping with the way we wish to tour and share our vision. Looking forward to seeing some familiar faces — particularly the folks at the Little Hamilton in Nashville, and all you cats in Austin and New Orleans — and covering some new ground. Make sure to keep an eye on for venue listings and directions.”
