Glasgow Grin, featuring former members of Dear Black Diary, has announced their upcoming Hypothermia Tour 2009 with Serpent and The Siren. The tour will cross-cross Ontario throughout the month of January and February with more dates expected to be announced soon.
Glasgow Grin has also debuted new material online at www.myspace.com/glasgowgrin for fans. The tracks are taken from their Year of the Sun Records debut â€œSaints of the Greatest Sinâ€. The album was recorded at Frozen Solid Studios with producer Matt Connell (Exhumed, Fuck The Facts) and mixed by Jamie King (Between The Buried And Me). â€œSaints of the Greatest Sinâ€ is a concept record based around a serial killer who murders sex offenders and is pulled together by the chilling album artwork and an eight page short story contained in the liner notes
Blending Meshuggah’s mathematical metal, Montreal Death Metal’s instrumental brutality, the blistering blast beats of black metal and the catches and hooks of early metalcore The Serpent & The Siren are sizing up to be a formidable force in the Ontario metal scene. While cutting teeth in their hometown of London, Ontario has allowed them to pack shows, Serpent and the Siren’s tireless work ethic has earned them opening slots for The Black Dahlia Murder, Fear Before The March Of Flames, Soilent Green, Misery Index, Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza & A Life Once Lost. The group recently released the “Plague Bearer” EP independently, and are already writing and recording a follow-up..
