Affiance has just announced their upcoming headline run, Blackout Pt, 2 (The Road To Riff City) Tour, with special guests Phinehas and Kingdom Of Giants! The tour kicks off January 7th and the band will be hitting Canada and some cities they have not been to in a while. Singer Dennis Tvrdik commented:
Excited to be playing with our friends in Phinehas and Kingdom of Giants again. It’s been a year since we played the West Coast so it’s good to get back out there. Canada will be both amazing and freezing… Ha Ha.
Blackout has been met with some great reviews, and singer Dennis Tvrdik commented:
We are still a relatively small band in a very big metal world and we hope to change that with this album. Blackout is a bit darker than our previous albums, and I think it’s time for heavy music with melodies to make its presence known in American metal culture. I am proud to be a part of that.
Brett Wondrak (guitar) commented on the new album:
Blackout is another step forward for us. We wrote this album to give our fans everything they expect from us and more. All the catchy guitar licks, crushing breakdowns, shredding solos, and memorable high notes that Dennis is so well known for. These are some of the best songs we’ve ever written. This has been a great year for metal. Blackout will be no exception.
Affiance recently wrapped up North American and European tours with Killswitch Engage, Protest The Hero, The Word Alive, Memphis May Fire, Darkest Hour, Dance Gavin Dance, Miss May I, The Color Morale, and Stray From The Path.
