OBSCURA: Announce Dates In South East Asia
OBSCURA will head to South East Asia and Dubai for the first time-ever this September. This run of dates kicks-off on September 23rd and is in support of the band’s latest album Omnivium.
OBSCURA’s Steffen Kummerer commented on the upcoming tour; “We are honored to get the chance to play in South East Asia with Obscura for the first time ever. After our European run with Hate Eternal and the North American tour alongside Children of Bodom the 'Omnivium World Tour' finally extends to Asia. The band is stoked to meet our fans in the United Arab Emirates, Thailand, Singapore, and Indonesia in September and October this year!"
OBSCURA are also confirmed to perform at the German metal festivals Summer Breeze and Way of Darkness. A listing of tour dates and cities can be found below.
OBSCURA released Omnivium in late March, charting in both the U.S. and Germany for first week sales. OBSCURA debuted at #11 on the Billboard Top New Artists or “Heatseekers” chart in the U.S. and at #14 on the official German Newcomers Chart as determined by Media Control. OBSCURA is currently streaming Omnivium in its entirety online now at this location.
OBSCURA has posted “Concerto”, which was included as the Japanese bonus track and on the iTunes digital deluxe edition of Omnivium, online now via the band’s Facebook page. “Concerto” is a cover track from Marty Friedman and Jason Becker’s CACOPHONY Speed Metal Symphony album.
