Frontman Hal Sinden commented recently:

“To be asked to go on the road with not only such eminent figureheads but the band that provide such a huge influence on our sound is nothing short of mindblowing. As what will undoubtedly be the best dressed tour that Europe will have seen this decade, we look forward to destroying each & every stage as politely as possible.”

TALANAS recently re-entered the London’s Berry Street Studio to commence pre-production for their next album ‘daylight’, the follow-up to 2011’s ‘the waspkeeper’ (released through Eulogy Media) which appeared in the ‘Best Albums’ lists of over 12 separate publications that year including Metal Hammer, Classic Rock Presents Prog & Rock Hard (FR) and which The Guardian newspaper commented as having been overlooked for a Mercury Music Prize [http://www.guardian.co.uk/culture/2011/jul/22/alexis-petridis-metal-mercury-prize].

Prior to the My Dying Bride tour, TALANAS will also embark on their own full headline tour of the UK & Ireland throughout November with main support provided by Manchester prog metallers Spires [www.spiresband.co.uk]. Dates are currently being confirmed through Eulogy Media.
