"We're gonna finish up this spring tour in Albany, which is on May 22nd, and then our European tour starts May 27th,” he tells Metal Sucks. “And that stretches into right in the beginning of July; so that's gonna be festivals. After that, we have an EP coming out. That's gonna be great, because that's gonna sort of re-energize the whole cycle.

“So there's gonna be some new material, we're gonna have a new stage show. So it's gonna be a completely different setting. Then we're gonna terrorize you with that up until next year."
