Combichrist Confirmed As Support To Cavalera Tour

ATLANTA, Ga. – Norwegian-American electronic hard rock/heavy metal group, Combichrist, has been announced as direct support for Max & Iggor Cavalera on their “Return to Roots” tour, kicking off on September 12 in Las Vegas. The North American tour, celebrating the 20th anniversary of the legendary album Roots to be played in its entirety each night, will feature additional support from The Black Dahlia Murder (select dates only), Allegaeon, All Hail The Yeti and Oni. Tickets are on-sale beginning today and can be purchased via each individual venue. Visit your local “Return to Roots” tour venue’s website for more information, or check back to for updated ticket links as they become available.
“Being able to do this Roots tour is a huge deal for me,” said Combichrist founder and frontman Andy LaPlegua. “That album changed everything for me when it came to music, both in the freedom to mix genres and how I wrote metal riffs. I can’t express how stoked I am about this tour.”
Combichrist is touring in support of its eighth studio album This is Where Death Begins, which released in June on Out of Line Music. An apocalyptic behemoth of guitars, electronica, infernal drums and dark elemental force, This is Where Death Begins was produced by Oumi Kapila (Filter) plus Combichrist’s own Andy LaPlegua and mastered by the legendary Vlado Meller (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Slipknot). The 15-track album also features guest vocals from Chris Motionless (Motionless in White) and Ariel Levitan (MXMS).
“I finally feel like we came full circle with this album, considering we’re all from the punk rock, hardcore and metal backgrounds,” commented LaPlegua. “Call it whatever you want, but, for me, it’s industrial metalcore. Every style of music that I have done through the last 25 years has some kind of presence on this album.”
This is Where Death Begins is available now via Out of Line Music on CD, deluxe double-CD, double-vinyl and as a strictly limited fan box containing the double-CD plus an exclusive DVD of the Combichrist performance at the Summer Breeze Festival 2015 in Germany. Purchase This is Where Death Begins in multiple formats on here and digitally via iTunes here.

About Combichrist:

Initially cutting his teeth in the seminal Norwegian hardcore bands My Right Choice and Lash Out, Combichrist founder and vocalist Andy LaPlegua segued out of that scene into the electronic music world with Icon of Coil. It wasn’t until 2003 that LaPlegua founded Combichrist – the project that would soon dominate his time. A departure from IOC’s futurepop sound, Combichrist took LaPlegua’s hardcore past and electronica present and merged them into a singular, mechanical music monster.

Since releasing the first Combichrist album The Joy of Gunz, LaPlegua and Combichrist have unleashed six subsequent full-lengths, including 2014’s We Love You, and numerous EPs while also cracking Billboard’s Top 10 Dance Singles chart. Following the release of 2011’s Making Monsters, they promoted it loudly by accompanying German friends Rammstein on an International stadium tour, expanding their audience even further. LaPlegua was also commissioned to write the battle music for the Ninja Theory/CapCom videogame DmC: Devil May Cry, resulting in over 20 tracks, many of which appeared on the soundtrack album, Combichrist’s sixth studio release, No Redemption.

Combichrist is:

Andy LaPlegua – vocals
Joe Letz – drums
Eric 13 – guitar
Brent Ashley – bass
Nick Rossi – drums
