Plini announces European summer tour


Guitar virtuoso Plini has announced a summer European tour.

The Australian musician will kick off the run of dates with his previously announced set at the UK’s Download festival on June 9 and will wrap up the run of live shows at the Brutal Assault Festival in the Czech Republic.

For his non-festival dates, Plini will be joined by special guests Mestis – featuring Javier Reyes of Animals As Leaders – and Arch Echo.

Last week, Plini released his new single Salt + Charcoal and will also tour with Tesseract and Between The Buried And Me later this year.
