Vulture Industries Announce European Tour Dates


Avant-garde metallers VULTURE INDUSTRIES are due to hit the road in September for a series of European dates guesting with LEPROUS on the first leg of the latter’s European ”Coal” Tour.  Starting in VULTURE INDUSTRIES’ home country of Norway on the 13th September, the tour routing is as follows:

14/9: Tribute, Sandnes, Norway
15/9: Buddy, Drammen, Norway

With a live career spanning 9 years and with almost 100 shows under their belts, VULTURE INDUSTRIES’ live performances are known both for their technical skill and the eccentric and somewhat manic antics of frontman Bjørnar E. Nilsen, whose on-stage weirdness has garnered a multitude of fans for the band over the years.  Commenting on the tour he had this to say: “We are thrilled to have been invited along on this tour. The route covers areas we haven’t toured much in the past, and we are eager to visit our East European fans in Russia and the Baltic for the first time. The more extensive visit to Poland is also a welcome one.  We’re particularly happy to tour alongside Leprous and in general we will have a good amount of playing time on this tour, so we will get to quench the thirst of our fans temporarily.”

VULTURE INDUSTRIES recently signed with Season of Mist for the release of the band’s third full-length album, which, as with the two previous albums, is once again being recorded at the Conclave & Earshot Studios in Bergen and produced by Nilsen himself who also happens to be one of Norway’s foremost producers.   With ENSLAVED’s Herbrand Larsen handling the mixing, the album is mastered by Jens Bogren at the Fascination Street Studios (OPETH, KATATONIA, DEVIN TOWNSEND, IHSAHN, ENSLAVED).

Before embarking on the Coal Tour, VULTURE INDUSTRIES will be in Alba Iulia, Romania on the 17th August for a special show at the Dark Bombastic Evening event, where they will share the stage with the Happy Gorilla Dance Company.  More information about VULTURE INDUSTRIES can be found on the band’s website at http://www.vulture-industries.net
