We have been waiting to make this announcement! We are thrilled to say we will be joining our friends Unleash The Archers and Striker (CAN) on a full North American tour starting this September. Please check back soon for final date announcements.
From the UTA post:
LISTEN UP UTA FANS OF NORTH AMERICA!
We know you guys have been waiting extremely patiently for us to announce our North American tour, but we are still waiting for a few venues to confirm, so all we can tell you right now is that IT IS HAPPENING and that all dates will be announced next week. We are so excited to come play for our Canadian and American fans, and we want you all to know that this tour is BIG. It will hit up both coasts as well as the south, the Midwest and Canadian prairies, hence why it is taking so long to complete. Another thing we are allowed to tell you is that we will be hitting the road with two insanely talented bands, both of whom we consider close friends, so get your stoke on, ’cause Striker (CAN) and Helion Prime are gonna slay some face along with UTA this fall! Seriously can’t wait for this guys, we’ll see you all soon! \m/
STAY TUNED NEXT WEEK FOR FULL DETAILS!!!
Now with our great news comes a bit of unfortunate news. Due to this tour being so close and some hold ups with visa issues Sozos will not be able to join on us this tour. We looked at our options and discussed thoroughly what course of action we should take. Ultimately we all agreed the tour should continue. Standing in for Sozos will be the amazing and very talented Mary Zimmer owner of VoiceHacks – Tutorials & Lessons for Singers & Screamers current singer of Santa Marta, and has also sang for White Empress and Luna Mortis. She is no doubt capable to front us on this tour!
We understand to some it will be disappointing to not see Sozos but Visas are something out of our control I’m afraid. Sozos himself wanted to personally reach out:
I am really sorry about the fact that I can’t make it to this tour. I’ve had issues with my visa (I have the wrong type) and as a result it will take some time to sort it out and for me to be able to come to the US again. I am confident that the rest of Helion Prime will do a phenomenal job with my temporary replacement, Mary Zimmer.
Despite the tour setback, I’m really excited for all of you to listen to our new tracks, whether that is in concert or digitally. Jason and I are already working on Helion Prime’s third album, sketching out an outline for it and bouncing ideas off each other.
I apologize again for not being able to make it, hopefully I will be there for the next tour. I really appreciate the love and support I have received so far, and I will keep trying to prove that they are well-placed.
We are going to have a great time on the road and we hope you will come join us!
