Sylosis to tour with Lamb of God

UK based modern thrash heroes SYLOSIS will tour the United States with LAMB OF GOD, on their first tour since Randy Blythe’s release from Czech prison, this October - December. Joining them are Swedish titans IN FLAMES and deathcore pioneers HATEBREED.

Commented SYLOSIS in an official statement:
"We're extremely honored to be heading out with LAMB OF GOD this Fall on their North American tour. The package is huge with IN FLAMES, HATEBREED and HELLYEAH so to be opening up the show each night is going to be awesome. This is only our 2nd tour in America and we sincerely couldn't ask for better. This will also be the first tour in support of our coming album Monolith so we're looking forward to playing new tracks on this mammoth tour!"

Guitarist/vocalist Josh Middleton previously commented about the album:
"Monolith is the best representation of us as a band in terms of our diverse influences, and stylistically it's what we've always been aiming for. A mixture of thrash, big doomy riffs and dark atmospherics and ambience.” 

“The idea for the concept was very loosely inspired by the Greek tale of Orpheus and Eurydice,” continued Middleton. “It's quite far-fetched but it's about this guy who loses his wife and tries to bring her back from underworld. This giant monolith starts to grow out of her tomb. The most prevalent theme beneath it all is sort of accepting that you might not be as nice a person as you once thought. It sounds really cheesy but everyone has a darker side to their personality in terms of being selfish, manipulative or dishonest.”
