Virginia tech-death overlords ARSIS, will serve as direct support to Swedish melodic death metallers SCAR SYMMETRY this September in North America. ARSIS will be performing a brand new song on this tour entitled “As Deep As Your Flesh”. The track will serve as the band’s first new material since Unwelcome was released in 2013. Listen to the pre-production for the song in this exclusive drum play-through by drummer Shawn Priest.
Guitarist/vocalist James Malone commented about the tour: “In 2009 ARSIS supported BEHEMOTH, DEVILDRIVER and SCAR SYMMETRY in Europe. Some of my fondest memories of this tour came from sharing a bus with SCAR SYMMETRY. Not because of crazy, late night parties like one may expect, but because of awaking almost every morning to find different items in the lounge sink that didn’t necessarily belong there. One morning it could be salad, the next salami… the sink treasures always kept me guessing. I would make up elaborate stories in my head as to how the night prior must have gone for the SCAR SYMMETRY guys.
“While we won’t be sharing a bus with the guys this run, i am certainly looking forward to sharing the stage with them and making some new memories. I am also looking forward to playing some new Arsis material live for the first time this coming September. I hope to see you all a show!”
