Insomnium Is Touring the U.S. This Fall. Sweet.

This fall is going to be kick ass for shows for me. I just mentioned Nightwish with Kamelot but another tour that gets me warm in the britches is that Insomnium is also going to be touring in support of Epica. There as usual is some downsides of course. Look at the rest of the support bands. What or who is Destiny Potato? Seriously? That’s a name for a fucking band supporting Epica and Insomnium? I’ll look it up but holy shit what a terrible name for a band. They better be funny. Oh look. Here is a promo shot of them. Apparently they’re a metalcore djent type band from Serbia. Great.

System Divide. Whatever. I see I’m going to get annoyed after the first two bands. And then there is Alestorm which I watched on the Paganfest tour and hopefully you did too. They are a fun band up on stage. And then we get to the serious shit. Insomnium is bad ass and were firmly in my top 5 of 2011. This I’m stoked for. And of course Epica which I did see once but Simone Simons was ill and instead Amanda Somerville filled in. So that should be fun. For everybody that ragged on my review for Requiem, I’ll still support them even though I didn’t like the latest release as much as previous. Fuck off. Tour dates after the jump even though the poster has them.
