Extreme tech-metal messiah's Meshuggah have added fellow Swedes The Haunted to the bill on their forthcoming U.K. and Ireland dates. The band will play Belfast, Dublin and across the U.K. in January 2017, in support of new album 'The Violent Sleep Of Reason' which is released on 7th October.
The tour, which kicks off in Bristol on 12th January at the Academy, has recently seen the Dublin show on 18th January upgraded from The Academy to Vicar Street, due to phenomenal demand. The full list of dates can be viewed below.
Meshuggah's anticipated upcoming eighth album 'The Violent Sleep Of Reason' was produced by the band, and was engineered by Tue Madsen of Puk Studios in Kaerby, Denmark. For the cover, the band once again enlisted Keerych Luminokaya who created the artwork for Koloss and The Ophidian Trek as well as the new images for each of the seven albums and three EP's featured in the '25 Years of Musical Deviance' box set.
