As something of the public face to the growing genre of aggressive EBM I’d say Combichrist know a thing of two about the changing sounds of the scene. Their imminent ‘Evolution Tour’ of the UK charts the course of the years this electro industrial beast has spent making itself into the monster it is today. Expect a unique performance that captures every last growing pain, tipping its hat to the earliest days as well as look forward to the new ones. Rising EBM acts Jayce Lewis and Surgyn have announced that they will be accompanying the stars on their run of 7 UK headline shows, which kick off in Newcastle next week.
The Gary Numan endorsed Welsh soloist Jayce Lewis joins the band as direct support for the UK leg of Combichrist’s headline tour. Following the international top 10 chart position of his debut, the soloist recently achieved a 10,000+ sales (and rising) with both albums/singles right here in the U.K, as well as receiving an impressive endorsement from Electronic Icon – Gary Numan; quoted to insist Jayce as the best supporting act he’s had in 30 years, following the pair touring the U.K together late 2011.
The line up will be completed by Scottish duo Surgyn, who have, over the period of a single year, proven themselves in a series of high-profile Industrial shows all across the UK. Surgyn’s debut album ‘Vanity’ is out via Death Watch Asia now.
