East of the Wall‘s month-long US tour is now underway, the Jersey technical progressive metal practitioners having kicked off the festivities in their home state on Wednesday. After slaying the townspeople of Akron, Ohio last night alongside Hull, both acts will join up with Black Tusk for a raging evening in Chicago tonight. EOTW and ‘Tusk will then take on most of the remainder of the tour together, including a slew of killer shows supporting Prong, Skeletonwitch, Royal Thunder, Intronaut, Gaza, Dying Fetus, Goatwhore, Hivesmasher and many more throughout the trek.
Recorded by Andrew Schneider at Translator Audio in Brooklyn (Cave In, Pelican, Keelhaul, Unsane, Rosetta), The Apologist undoubtedly portrays the most challenging and groundbreaking East of the Wall tunes yet, with incredible response from magazines, local newspapers, blogs and through diehard metal and progressive fan bases across the globe still coming in. Released in late October, the CD/digital release of the album was handled by Translation Loss and the 2xLP via Antithetic Records.
