Following a two-year hiatus, Ohioan tech death outfit Locusta have announced a new string of East Coast tour dates to commence this spring. The band is currently putting the finishing touches on their new album, which is slated to be released later this year. A new EP entitled Dendromorphosis will be available at all upcoming shows. On the upcoming tour and new material, the band comments:
“We’re looking forward to hitting the road again after such an agonizingly long break from touring and to what we’re anticipating will be some of the best shows we’ve ever played, both in respect to the caliber of the bands we’re billed with and the fact that our live sets sound tighter than they ever have before. Our set lists will mostly contain songs from the new album, including the first track we’ve ever written that extends past the nine-minute mark, which is easily the darkest and most epic piece of music we’ve written so far. There is more grinding technicality than before, but the songs are also much more mature from a songwriting point of view than what you hear on our first album. We’re excited to be sharing this time in the band with all of our new and old friends on the road, but…no survivors.”
