SURGEON: Philly-Based Epic Metal Unit Confirms November Mini-Tour

Philly's epic metal outfit, SURGEON, has confirmed an upcoming Fall tour in support of their second full-length release, Chemical Reign.

On November 14th, SURGEON will traverse south to converge with their cohorts in Midnight Eye for the week-long run, kicking the tour off in Washington, DC that evening supporting the mighty Absu. The following six nights will see the two bands rolling through Richmond, Harrisonburg, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Brooklyn and Boston where the tour comes to an end on November 20th.

SURGEON's output ventures into foreign territory for most by-the-books classical and fusion acts under the progressive metal umbrella. Perhaps simply "epic metal" is a more defining tag, as the talented crew seamlessly blends a variety of rugged post-death and post-doom elements into their infectious songcraft. They self-released their sophomore album, Chemical Reign -- the record produced by the band and Kevin Antreassian (Dillinger Escape Plan, Mike Portnoy, Russell Allen of Symphony X) at Backroom Studios in Rockaway, New Jersey -- in May of this year to a parade of critical acclaim.

Listen to several tracks from Chemical Reign and more from SURGEON via their Bandcamp page.
