Support on the tour will come from label-mates SPAWN OF POSSESSION, French tech-death maestros GOROD, and Dutch progressive metallers EXIVIOUS.

OBSCURA’s Steffen Kummerer commented on the upcoming run:

“We are stoked to announce our upcoming European headlining tour to support our newest album ‘Omnivium’! With our label-mates Spawn of Possession, tech-death lunatics Gorod and the fusion influenced Exivious this tour is a must for everyone who is into progressive music. This is the ultimate shredfest of the year!”

The collection will include ten never-before-heard tracks, including the band’s earliest recordings from 2003, unreleased songs from the Cosmogenesis sessions of 2006, and brand new cover songs with the newest line-up from 2011.
