They’ll be joined on the road by Azusa, while The Contortionist will also play several festivals including ArcTanGent.

Keyboardist Eric Guenther says: “We are thrilled to announce that we will be adventuring across the sea one more time on the Clairvoyant (opens in new tab) tour cycle to perform a series of shows and festival dates. 

“A highlight of the year, we can’t wait to celebrate with our European friends one more time before beginning the next chapter for The Contortionist. Hope to see everyone there!”
