Guelph, ON melodic symphonic death metallers Unbowed announce they will be embarking on their last tour of Ontario and Quebec before packing up their battle axes and moving the band to the UK. Accompanying Unbowed on this trek is Toronto death metal titans Vesperia and fellow Guelph progressive death metallers Becomes Astral. The tour will kick off in Barrie, ON on November 23rd and ends in Montreal, QC on December 2nd (dates listed below).
The band comments:
“We cannot wait to hit the road with Vesperia and Becomes Astral on The Northern Cold Tour! These will be Unbowed’s last Canadian performances for a few years. At the end of this year, two members of the band (myself included) will be moving to England to attend school for audio production. After this tour, Unbowed will be focusing on writing and recording new material and planning gigs in Europe and the U.K. We hope you join us for this last foray into the Canadian metal scene before we set off overseas!”
Unbowed was originally founded in 2011 as a studio-project comprised of Ioan Tetlow (vocals) and Alex Snape (guitar); at the time being just high school kids.
Unbowed has self-released two EPs, two full-length albums, and toured throughout Ontario and Québec.
Since Unbowed’s humble beginnings, the band’s trajectory has been geared towards releasing epic full length albums and touring across Europe and the rest of the world.
Now that the band is comprised of a full line-up of like-minded musicians with the introduction of Steven Rowlands (guitar), Julian Dutton (drums), and Aiden Watkinson (bass), the band is taking the steps to make that ideal trajectory a reality.
Through Endless Tides is Unbowed’s most recent and most ambitious output. With this release, the band found a way to naturally represent their wide array of inspirations; allowing them to manifest into a sound that is entirely and uniquely their own.
Unbowed is music about acknowledging and tackling the hardships provided by the human condition. We all witness and experience strife and adversity at an alarming rate in this age. Unbowed is about wading through the transitory aspects of life and preserving what is true, what keeps us ambitious, and what keeps us united.
Unbowed’s latest album Through Endless Tides was released this past May.
