Pennsylvanian prog-death act Horrendous have announced a short US/Canadian run for late March/early April, going by the title of ‘Idolicide Tour 2020’. As the name suggests, this tour is meant to be the final one tailing the release of the band’s latest album, Idol. Celebrating the last days of that cycle, the tour takes them to cover some new cities, with support on select dates by such acts as Dysrhythmia, Spectral Voice, and Satan.
Horrendous have been steadily making waves throughout the scene ever since their inception in 2009. After three full-lengths, 2018’s Idol further magnified these waves, bringing forth well-deserved critical acclaim and high praise. The forward-thinking approach the quartet took with it saw them refining the edges and perfecting the form of their output in a way that didn’t leave anyone cold, not the new nor the familiar listeners. This was also underlined in our review, going: ‘In a genre that’s so strictly defined by its tropes and legends that have been doing it for decades, it’s so refreshing to see bands like this play with the rules and create something really exciting and admirable.’
As mentioned, this tour marks the end of the Idol era, and contains some of the very few shows planned for this year. The remainder of the year will be spent writing and recording what will eventually be Horrendous‘ fifth album; I think it’s safe to say that we’re all pretty stoked for it.
