CANTO: Enslaved, Voivod, August Burns Red, and More

Whoa. Finally back at this thing after what has been a very hectic first half of the week.

  • I’m aware this news may be a couple days old, but I don’t really care. We start with Enslaved, who announced “The Otherworldly Big Band Experience”. The virtually streamed concert will take place on December 21st, with tickets and bundles available here. That event, of course, celebrates the release of the Caravans To The Outer Worlds EP that dropped last month.
  • Voivod have a new album coming early next year! Synchro Anarchy will be out on February 11th through Century Media. This doesn’t come as a complete surprise, since they were active last year in releasing Lost Machine – Live and all that. But still, good news is good news.
  • Skeletal Remains and Vitroil are joining Defeated Sanity on the Sanguinary Impetus tour next year. Those dates run from February 24th through March 26th.
  • August Burns Red dropped a live video for “Paramount”, a track taken from Guardians, and given how short I am on time today… this feels like a good note to end on. Check it out below.
