CANTO: Chevelle, Hooded Menace, Knotfest Los Angeles, and More

Today was a long, weird day. Probably because the world is on fire, but that’s just speculation.

  • We’ll start with the recently announced Chevelle tour dates. Those are U.S. dates that run from September 1st through November 21st. Naturally, this tour supports the recently released new album, Niratias, which is out now through Epic Records.
  • Slipknot have announced Knotfest Los Angeles, which will take place on November 5th at Banc Of California Stadium. That will be headlined by, well, Slipknot… but also Bring Me The Horizon, Killswitch Engage, among others. Tickets go on sale this week at this location.
  • Black metal collective Aussichtslos have set September 30th as the international release date for Einsicht. Their second album will be available through Purity Through Fire on CD, with a vinyl run coming sometime in the future. Check out a new track, titled “Flächenbrand”, right now.
  • Hooded Menace dropped a new video, and that sounds like the ideal way to wrap up Monday. “Those Who Absorb The Night” is taken from The Tritonus Bell, which is set for an August 27th release through Season of Mist. Pre-order it here, if you feel so inclined.
