UK-based modern thrashers SYLOSIS will make their North American debut this winter supporting AS I LAY DYING, OF MICE & MEN, THE GHOST INSIDE, and I WRESTLED A BEAR ONCE!
“We’re really excited to announce our first US tour this winter supporting AS I LAY DYING,” commented guitarist/vocalist Josh Middleton. “We’ve toured with them twice already in Europe and the UK and they’re some of the nicest guys and crew we’ve toured with. The line up is really diverse so it’s cool to know there will be all kinds of fans of heavy music at these shows. We will be the opening band on this bill so make sure you get there nice and early!
We’re also going to be announcing some headline shows around this tour while we’re over there, playing a few places which the AS I LAY DYING tour won’t be hitting. At these shows we’ll obviously be playing a much longer set.
We can’t wait to finally do some proper touring the States. It’s been a long time coming so make sure you come and check us out.”

Check out the videoclip for the song “Empyreal” here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qXdPoL1yQsA. The track is taken from the album Edge Of The Earth, which was released on April 19th 2011 in North America.
SYLOSIS’ Nuclear Blast debut “Conclusion Of An Age” was released in North America on January 27 2009.
SYLOSIS’ musical style can be described as “brutal, technical and deceptively melodic modern metal that favors invention over cliché and never shies away from nimble shifts in style, tempo or mood. The quintet manage to bring an epic, technical and melodic feel to the old-school thrash sound, combining incredible guitar solos and bloodlust vocals. The outcome, a sound that is both devastatingly feral and blisteringly precise.”
