Finland’s multi-platinum cello rock act Apocalyptica have announced a Spring 2020 North American tour. The first leg of the tour will launch on Sunday, May 3rd in Orlando Florida. The band will travel to 20 cities over a three week period where they will wrap up on May 26 in Boston Massachusetts.
The setlist is expected to vary from night to night, with Apocalyptica performing some songs from their upcoming new album, Cell-0, as well as many fan favorites from the bands catalog. Lacuna Coil will be playing as support for all dates.
Ticket pre-sales and access to VIP packages begin tomorrow, November 20 at 10AM (local); public on-sale starts Friday, November 22 at 10AM (local). Go to https://www.apocalyptica.com for all pre-sales, VIP packages, and ticketing details.
In concert, Apocalyptica is known for its moving and bombastic live performances with sparse production but an abundance of head banging. Anyone who might think that there wouldn’t be a deluge of excitement with three cellists should think again…these are symphonic rock stars who know how to shred their bows.
These tour dates are in support of the band’s new album Cell-0, set for a January 10 release (Silver Lining Music). Produced by Apocalyptica, mixed by Andrew Sheps (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Lana Del Rey, Metallica and Black Sabbath), and recorded at Sonic Pump studios in Helsinki, the recording of Cell-0 followed a four-year break between albums that gave the band a fresh perspective and affected the way they approached the new music. Cell-0 is the quartet’s first instrumental album in 17 years and found the musicians challenging themselves to discover new flavors and colors in their respective instruments.
