Clairvoyant Album Out Now

THE CONTORTIONIST have announced a new batch of tour dates supporting NOTHING MORE early next year. The trek kicks off in Little Rock, Arkansas on Saturday, February 3rd at The Metroplex. The tour brings the band from coast to coast before wrapping up in Sacramento, California at the legendary Ace of Spades on Saturday, March 3rd.

"We're very happy to announce that we will be sharing the stage with NOTHING MORE," says vocalist Michael Lessard. "We have continually tried to tour with bands that excite us and push us to evolve, and NOTHING MORE does both of those things. We look forward to seeing everyone soon!"

After wrapping up a successful run with BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME on their nearly sold out “Colors” tour, the band is headed out once again in continued support of their latest full length, Clairvoyant released in September via Entertainment One/Good Fight Music. The new LP was the follow up to Language, the genre-defying LP that continues to garner critical acclaim. Clairvoyant, which reunited the band with producer Jamie King (BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME, THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD), took the best elements of THE CONTORTIONIST’s past and reshapes them as the band follows their individual creative muses toward the future.

THE CONTORTIONIST saw critics calling the record "gripping adventure," as Metal Hammer did. Alternative Press said Clairvoyant was "best described as magical" and "a record you can truly get lost in." MetalSucks even declared it a "Perfect Album."

THE CONTORTIONIST ultimately proves to have as much in common with the psychedelic experimentation of later OPETH or TOOL and even the textured melodicism of SIGUR ROS as they do technical heavy music, but they’ve never sacrificed urgent impact. Critics and fans admire their intelligent approach to the crushing riffs of tech-metal, which becomes more vibrant with elements of ambitious post-rock and jazzy / fusion-infused virtuosity. Even when angular riffs, odd time signatures, and devastating breakdowns give way to hypnotic, ethereal, and trancelike musical meditations, THE CONTORTIONIST are never lacking in total power.

In whatever THE CONTORTIONIST endeavors to do, there will always be a great amount of thought, attention to detail, and a shared love of musicality. They have committed to never surrender to the path of least resistance, always challenging themselves and their audience.

This is art for art’s sake. THE CONTORTIONIST ease through the doors of perception with grace where possible and smash through the boundaries with absolute force when necessary.
