INSOMNIUM 6-26-15Ready to embark on their first USA headlining tour this August, Finnish melodic death metallers have announced Nick Cordle (SANCTUARY, ex-ARCH ENEMY, ex-ARSIS) as the fill-in guitarist for the trek. Due to his very busy work schedule, Ville Friman is not able to join the band on this run of dates, but fans can still expect the dual face-melting, guitar hero onslaught of Vanhala & Cordle every night!

Ville Friman comments: “My sincere apologies for not being able to take part in ’s busy touring schedule this year. I’ve tried my best to work my way around work and band and will be doing as many shows as possible. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to take part in this run. But worry not, Nick has kindly accepted to step into my shoes and will be shredding his way into your hearts every night. In the meanwhile, I’ll be concentrating on coming up with new tunes. Hope to see you soon in North America.”

Nick Cordle adds: “It’ll be an honor and a pleasure to sit in with on this run! They’re an awesome live band and I’ll try to hold up my end of that ‘face melting guitar hero onslaught’ as promised!”

Kicking off at the Heavy MTL festival on August 9th, the tour also features OMNIUM GATHERUM as direct support. Stay tuned for details about a special tour split 7″ with INSOMNIUM and OMNIUM GATHERUM coming soon! See below for all dates.

INSOMNIUM will be touring in support of their latest album, Shadows Of The Dying Sun. Born out of the melancholy, sorrow and dreariness of long winter nights, their 6th full-length is even more intense and dynamic than its predecessor (2011’s acclaimed masterpiece, One For Sorrow). With each new album, the quartet seems to bring their songwriting craftsmanship closer to perfection; Shadows Of The Dying Sun is irrefutably “…melodic death metal done right” (METAL INJECTION.net).
