SCALE THE SUMMIT Announce Early 2010 Tour

Houston, Texas’s, instru-metal virtuosos SCALE THE SUMMIT have been tapped to support BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME in January and February. CYNIC and THE DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT will also be appearing on the tour. SCALE THE SUMMIT spent the summer out on the “Progressive Nation Tour,” with DREAM THEATRE, ZAPPA PLAYS ZAPPA and BIG ELF.

Guitarist Chris Letchford commented; “We’re touring with Between The Buried And Me, Cynic and Devin Townsend! We have been wanting to tour with Between The Buried And Me for years now. The second I heard news of Cynic reforming and hearing their amazing new album, I never thought a package like this would come together, very glad their back! Then there is Devin Townsend. The last time I saw Devin play was with Strapping Young Lad when I was 16, which was over 9 years ago! Never would have thought we’d tour together. This tour is not one you’ll want to miss. Best tour of 2010 by far!”

SCALE THE SUMMIT recently stopped by Prosthetic HQ to film the debut episode of the new Prosthetic webisode series, PROSTHETIC TV. You can check the interview out at

SCALE THE SUMMIT formed in 2005 while attending the Musicians’ Institute in Los Angeles. The band relocated to Houston, TX in 2006 and recorded their first, self released album. They released “Carving Desert Canyons” earlier this year, on Prosthetic Records, which Metal Edge called, “Some of the most twisting, shapely prog-metal in America.”
