NIILO SEVÄNEN from INSOMNIUM comments:
"We are very happy to return to North America so quickly! With each previous tour we have felt that we've clearly gone forward and gained new fans so now it's the right time to bring a full headliner show across the Atlantic Ocean. We are very much looking forward to playing in Heavy MTL festival and that will be an awesome kickstart for the tour. And naturally we are more than happy to be sharing the bus and stage with our fellow Finnish brothers in death metal, the almighty Omnium Gatherum! Killer shows expected every night so get your tickets way in advance. See you all soon!"
MARKUS VANHALA from both bands adds:
"Here's the tour that every melodeathmaniac (except my back & neck) have been waiting for - the double trouble Insomnium Gatherum tour in North America! That's gonna a hell of a ride thru America and nice times with super dudes as both of my brotherhood camps will be staying in the same bus. The last year's Omnium Gatherum North American debut tour was a blast and also a great success, so I'm really happy to come back also with OG and have another round spin of "Beyond the World tour" beyond Atlantic!"

INSOMNIUM will be touring in support of their latest album, Shadows Of The Dying Sun. Born out of the melancholy, sorrow and dreariness of long winter nights, their 6th full-length is even more intense and dynamic than its predecessor (2011's acclaimed masterpiece, One For Sorrow). With each new album, the quartet seems to bring their songwriting craftsmanship closer to perfection; Shadows Of The Dying Sun is irrefutably "...melodic death metal done right" (METAL INJECTION.net).
