The Human Abstract Announce Fall Tour PlansBands — By HopelessMelissa on July 29, 2008
Hopeless Records’ shred driven metal band The Human Abstract has announced they will tour this fall with Trivium, All That Remains, and 36 Crazyfists starting September 9 and running through to October 19. They will be on tour in support of their second album, Midheaven, due out on Hopeless Records August 19, the follow up to their Hopeless debut Nocturne which sold over 30,000 copies and landed an impressive amount of positive press including being featured in Alternative Press’s “100 Bands You Need To Know” issue and a 4K’ review in Kerrang.
The Human Abstract is very familiar with their tour partners. They are currently on tour with All That Remains, sharing a bus with them as the two make the Warped Tour trek this summer, and they have toured with them before in the past. “We played with All That Remains on their first headlining tour.” Drummer Brett Powell said about their tour mates. “We are super excited. Ever since we got started as a band, we have looked to Trivium as a band that we would someday like to tour with. Being on a tour with three other bands that all have new albums out or coming out, it should be really great.”
“We’re going to be using a projection screen on this tour, with all the film edited by Michael Grodner, he produced our last music video. The footage will flow seamlessly from song to song. We have always wanted to become a visually stimulating band, and with this tour, we wanted to add something new to our live show that will add something extra for the fans. It is one thing to be musically appealing, we want our show to be visually appealing and stimulating as well.” Powell commented about the changes to their live show.
The Human Abstract have become battle tested and seasoned live performers making crowds across the country head-bang constantly touring with artists such as All That Remains, Drop Dead Gorgeous, God Forbid, Misery Signals, The Chariot, It Dies Today, Sky Eats Airplane, The Devil Wears Prada and the recent Take Action Tour with Every Time I Die, From First To Last, The Bled and August Burns Red.
