AVERSE SEFIRA To Tour Europe With GORGOROTH

July 31, 2008

Texas black metal trio AVERSE SEFIRA will embark on its most extensive tour of Europe this fall alongside GORGOROTH and HATE. Kicking off at John Dee's in Oslo (home to the annual Inferno Fest) on October 16, the tour will make 32 stops before ending in Birmingham, England on November 29. It will be the band's first opportunity in many cities to meet fans they have accumulated since their inception in 1996. "We are very pleased to join GORGOROTH in their crusade of terror and infamy," said the band in a recent statement regarding the confirmation of the tour. "This will be our largest incursion on the European continent and it is a great opportunity to bring chaos and perdition to so many regions."

The tour is in continued support of the Austin-based trio's latest album, "Advent Parallax". Released earlier this year the album was produced by Tore Stjerna (WATAIN, IN BATTLE) and features original artwork from celebrated artist Jos A. Smith (BATHORY). On release the band toured the U.S. with ROTTING CHRIST and friends IMMOLATION; their second tour of the country since signing with Candlelight Records.
