Symphony X date 2016 Euro tour

Symphony X have announced a 28-date European tour.

The run of headline shows kicks off in the UK on February 12 next year, and will wrap up in the Netherlands on March 20.

The gigs have been organised in support of their ninth album Underworld, released in July via Nuclear Blast.

Guitarist Michael Romero says: “We are excited about getting back out on the road and look forward to playing the new material for our fans and friends in Europe.”

Earlier this year, Romero spoke to Prog about the follow-up to 2011’s Iconoclast.

He said: “It’s pretty diverse. It’s a good balance of everything we’ve done, but also a little bit different because we’re trying to fine-tune the songwriting and really pay attention to the melodies and the arrangements and flow.”

The US outfit have released Kiss Of Fire, Without You and Nevermore from Underworld. They’re currently on tour across North America.
