Chicago metallic hardcore/grind crew NEQUIENT this week announces their first tour of the year with an East Coast Spring tour.

NEQUIENT released their second album, Darker Than Death Or Night, through Nefarious Industries in March of 2022, the album showing the band expanding their diverse palette without sacrificing their honed focus or capacity for vicious sensory assault. The album displays tightly controlled yet satisfyingly grimy, attuned to the anxieties of an uneasy era and unconcerned about fitting into the preconceived boundaries of subgenre. Mixed by Sanford Parker (Voivod, Yob, Eyehategod) and mastered by Collin Jordan (Harm’s Way, Windhand, Pelican), Darker Than Death Or Night is completed with artwork and design by Scott Shellhamer (American Heritage, Buried At Sea, Coffinworm).

NEQUIENT’s East Coast Tour will see the band out from March 23rd through April 7th with shows in Michigan, Ohio, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Indiana, and Illinois within the dense two week span. See all confirmed shows below and watch for additional live updates to post.
