Joey Jordison's Vimic Announce Their First 'World Tour'


Vimic, the group founded by former Slipknot star Joey Jordison, have announced that they will be embarking on what they are billing as their very first world tour.

The group has announced a handful of U.S. dates later this month as well as the dates for their 2017 European tour which will be kicking off in Stockholm on March 7th.

The Euro tour will also include stops in Norway, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, France and will conclude with three dates in the UK.

The band will be releasing their debut album, Open Your Omen, early next year. Jordison had the following to say about the effort. "The riffs, lyrics, and drums of Open Your Omen will tell you a lot.

"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 relearn how to walk, but how to play the drums again. Open Your Omen is the rebirth of the rest of my life."

Aside from Jordison, the group also features Kalen Chase (vocals), Jed Simon (guitar), Kyle Konkiel (bass), Matt Tarach (keyboards) and new guitarist Steve Marshall.
