Anniversary tours are more in vogue than they ever have been in music, and that’s not a bad thing – for the most part. Everyone from Senses Fail to Anberlin have performed shows (or even full tours) out of nostalgic albums, with much success, especially for those who weren’t necessarily aware of their existence in the era those seminal albums were released.
It’s not a surprise, then, that metal titans The Acacia Strain and After The Burial are teaming up to celebrate two beloved records in Continent and Rareform – arguably their best overall material. Both bands are co-headlining a major US tour celebrating those records, with support bands to be announced soon. If you’ve never dove into Rareform and Continent, we highly recommend doing so below – they’re important cornerstones in the recent history and evolution of extreme and progressive metal.
