Alcest, Mono reveal European tour supports


Alcest and Mono have announced who’ll be joining them on their upcoming co-headline European tour.

The run of shows are scheduled to begin in Dresden, Germany, on October 27 and wrap up on December 3 in Brasov, Romania – and pg.lost, Sinistro and Syndrome will provide support on select dates.

pg.lost are gearing up for the launch of their latest album Versus, which can be streamed exclusively with TeamRock below. It’s due to launch on September 16 – and the Swedish outfit say the tour will be a landmark for them.

The band say in a statement: “With a few albums, in hindsight we can proudly say that we’ve achieved something special with Versus and maybe for the first time in 10 years we’ve created an album that sonically sounds the way we wanted it to.

“It’s not the typical post-rock trip but instead it’s a full-bodied intense journey with our recipe of growling bass, heavy drums and wide guitars – but this time surrounded with an electric atmosphere.

“Coincidentally it’s also 10 years ago we did our very first show, supporting Mono in our hometown Norrkoping. It was a huge milestone for us as a band and with that in mind it was a no-brainer for us when we were asked to join them and Alcest on tour later this year.

“We couldn’t me more excited to announce this tour.”

To mark the tour announcement, Sinistro have issued a video of their track Estrada from this year’s Semente album, while Syndrome have released an excerpt of their new album Forever And A Day, which is out on September 16.

Alcest’s fifth album Kodama will be released on September 30, while Mono are expected to launch their latest studio effort Requiem For Hell in the coming months.
