The Contortionist, Jeff Loomis, Chimp Spanner and 7 Horns 7 Eyes Tour

06/28/2012
.
Former Nevermore guitarist Jeff Loomis will be hitting the road with The Contortionist, Chimp Spanner and 7 Horns 7 Eyes next month for the "Intrinsic 2012" Tour of North America.

In addition, Jeff Loomis will play four headlining dates featuring 7 Eyes 7 Horns as direct support.

Not only has Jeff Loomis been preparing for this tour, but he has also been working on new material. According to Joe Nurre, the touring guitarist and vocalist in Jeff Loomis' band, "Jeff and I have collaborated musically on two of the songs, and I have lyrics and vocals written for the three." Touring drummer Anup Sastry will be programming the drums, and producer Aaron Smith will be recording and mixing.

While residing in Wisconsin as a teenager, the former Nevermore guitarist played in a few death metal bands, and with these tracks, Loomis is going back to his roots. "The vocals will be more aggressive and death metal-like," Nurre explains. There are plans to release the recordings digitally sometime in July, with samples of songs to be available beforehand. Nurre adds, "We will be playing some of these songs on our upcoming tour with The Contortionist.
