North America, prepare your anuses.
Dark Tranquillity have announced the dates for a jaunt that kicks off in Puerto Rico in early 2014.
Along for the ride will be Omnium Gatherum and Exmortus.
The dates for the tour follow at the end of this post.
“Those of you who have seen us play this year might have noticed that we haven’t had a bass player on stage,” writes the band. Their new album “Construct was written and recorded as a five-piece, and since the band chemistry is at an all-time high and we’ve never been the ones to shy away from new creative solutions, we wanted to try out playing with the bass on a backing track as opposed to bringing more flesh and blood to the fold.
“Much to our delight the results have been great, and we have decided for now to let the band be represented on stage by the five people who have spent a total of more than 100 years in the service of D.T.”
