THE CONTORTIONIST has announced a headlining tour with JEFF LOOMIS presented by METALSUCKS with additional sponsorship from Royal Family Clothing and Guitar World Magazine. Kicking off in Indianapolis, IN, dates will run through July and August. Support will come from CHIMP SPANNER on their debut US tour and 7 HORNS 7 EYES. The band will also be featured on a handful of dates in this years SUMMER SLAUGHTER TOUR.
THE CONTORTIONIST will release their new record "Intrinsic" on July 17th, 2012 via eOne/Good Fight Music. "On 'Intrinsic', we've found ourselves focusing on the songwriting as well as the new textures and melody we're striving for. Each song has its own identity and flow, but the album is fun to listen through in order cause of the conceptual ties," says vocalist / keyboardist Jonathan Carpenter.
Produced and recorded by Eyal Levi (DAATH, JOB FOR A COWBOY) andJason Suecof (TRIVIUM, DEVILDRIVER) at Audiohammer Studios, this is by far the band's most far reaching material to date.
THE CONTORTIONIST broke onto the scene a few years ago and has quickly earned the title as one of the most musically inclined bands in the progressive metal genre.
In their brief but accomplished career, the band has supported a wide variety of acts including PERIPHERY, ALL SHALL PERISH, THE ACACIA STRAIN as well as headlining the inaugural edition of the Summer Slaughter Survivors Tour in 2011. The band recently completed tour dates in Canada and will continue to stay on the road through out the rest of the year.
THE CONTORTIONIST is: Robby Baca (Guitar), Jonathan Carpenter (Vocals, Keyboards), Joey Baca (Percussion), Cameron Maynard (Guitar), Christopher Tilley (Bass Guitar).
