Vimic, the band led by former Slipknot drummer Joey Jordinson have lined up a trio of UK shows for March. The five-piece will play dates in London, Birmingham, and Manchester as part of their short run. The shows come ahead of the release of their debut album 'Open Your Omen', which will follow soon after.
Comments Joey: "Hello to all our fans in the UK! It's about time, isn't it? It's been a long road getting here, but it's finally arrived and we're on our way soon. We are thrilled and excited to bring Vimic's music to you live, in the flesh and blood, and describe sonically what your support over the years means to all of us. This is going to be one hell of a run and a killer kick-off to the future! Thank you all!!!! We hope you'll come out and join us, as you are just as much a part of the band as we are. We look forward to seeing you very soon. Let's go!"
Vimic’s debut album, 'Open Your Omen' which is due in the spring, signals the biggest triumph of Jordison’s storied career, as it came to life in the face of his most trying time. Jordison was diagnosed with the often permanently debilitating neurological condition, Acute Transverse Myelitis. He spent three months in hospital during 2012 and underwent a course of intensive physical rehabilitation and training. Not only did he achieve a full recovery, but he reached a new level of proficiency behind the drums.
“The riffs, lyrics and drums of 'Open Your Omen' will tell you a lot,” Jordison admits. “I did this record when I was coming out of the Acute Transverse Myelitis condition. It’s literally what saved me and helped me get back to where I’m healthier than ever. These guys and this album pushed me to not only re-learn how to walk, but how to play the drums again. 'Open Your Omen' is the rebirth of the rest of my life.”
Tickets for all shows are are available from box offices, all usual agents and online here.
