NILE Announces 2016 U.S. Tour

August 3, 2015

The reigning kings of technical, historically themed brutality NILE have announced a momentous 31-date trek across North America in 2016. The tour launches in Tampa, Florida on January 8, hits New York, West Hollywood, Pittsburgh, and wraps up at a very special hometown show in Greensville, South Carolina on February 12.

NILE mastermind Karl Sanders commented: "We are extremely happy to bring our new album, 'What Should Not Be Unearthed', to NILE fans in the states. We will, of course, be playing a wide variety of classic NILE tunes as well each night as we take this tour to U.S. cities both familiar and new to us.

"As longtime supporters of the metal underground, NILE is also happy to announce that this tour will be further blessed by having local metal bands in each city as support acts. Also noteworthy and of special meaning to the band, is the homecoming show at the close of the tour; it has been ten years since we have played in our own hometown.

"Join us for an extreme evening of brutal metal!"
