JEFF LOOMIS, ex-Nevermore guitar prodigy, has been added to the 24-date, coast-to-coast US tour with PROTEST THE HERO, PERIPHERY, THE SAFETY FIRE and TODAY I CAUGHT THE PLAGUE. JEFF LOOMIS reveals the quality players he’s brought in to accompany him on the stage:
Joe Nurre – guitar (Shaded Enmity)
Gregory Macklin – bass (System Divide, Ordinance)
Anup Sastry – drums (Intervals, Skyharbor)
“My good friend, Joe Nurre from up here in Seattle, will be playing guitar with me out on this run with Protest the Hero and Periphery. Some of you might have seen him play with Nevermore on the 70,000 Tons of Metal cruise last year. I was lucky enough to find this killer drummer online. His name is Anup Sastry, I’ve seen him do these perfect drum covers on his Youtube page. I reached out and learned he plays in a few great bands as well. You should check out all the stuff he’s done. Anup is based out in the DC area and brought in a friend of his, Greg Macklin, to do bass. Those guys are going to be getting together out there to start practicing the set. Joe and I will do the same over here and then a couple weeks before the tour, Joe and I will fly over Maryland and we’ll all rehearse until we get things perfect. I can’t wait to get out there and start playing live again. See you soon.”
The tour begins March 25th in Chicago, IL and will lead up the release of the new album, Plains Of Oblivion on April 10th, before wrapping up in Philadelphia, PA on April 22nd. Tickets for the tour go on sale in most cities this Friday, February 3rd. A full list of dates can be seen below.
