Meshuggah Announce New Zealand And Australia Tour


(Prog) Meshuggah have announced a tour of New Zealand and Australia next March. They'll kick off the five date run at Auckland's Powerstation, New Zealand, on March 9, before hitting Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Fremantle in Australia in support of their forthcoming album The Violent Sleep Of Reason.

Drummer Tomas Haake recently revealed they recorded the album live for the first time in over two decades to capture what they "sound like honestly." He also said they were influenced by terrorism, extremist views and religious dogma in society.

He saod: "On this album and on previous albums, inspiration for lyrics has been current events and also a mix of things. Sometimes its purely fiction - something that you can be inspired and influenced by, something you've read in a book or seen in a movie or another song you hear.

"Sometimes it's just a line that someone says to you and gets you going - your brain starts spinning and you take it from there. A lot of times what you see going on around you in the world is the easiest kind of inspiration." Read more and see the dates here.
