Prog-Metal Quartet In The Presence Of Wolves Announces East Coast Tour, Beginning March 26th


New Jersey/Philadelphia-local progressive rock and metal hybrid IN THE PRESENCE OF WOLVES recently showcased their high-skill musicality with the release of their debut full-length album Thalassas. Combining influences ranging from classic groups such as Rush and Yes to modern experimental and prog performers Mastodon and The Mars Volta, Thalassas truly opened doors for the band – solidifying them as a group to watch in the up-and-coming progressive metal scene. Members of the press dubbed the album “adventurous” “virtuosic”and “technical” – to name a few choice descriptors.

The band will kick off their upcoming east coast U.S. tour on March 26th in Rockaway, NJ – visiting a total of six cities before closing the tour in Philadelphia, PA on April 2nd.  See below for all currently confirmed tour dates.
