Swallow the Sun will be joined on tour by Maldovan nu-metal revivalists Infected Rain, who’ve been generating buzz with their latest release Endorphin. Similarly, Finland’s rising prog-rock stars WHEEL will be on the bill supporting their recent release Moving Backwards. Quite the eclectic lineup that will no doubt make Swallow the Sun‘s first American headlining tour a memorable one.
