The Contortionist Announce Special “Reimagined” Tour

The Contortionist have announced a special “Reimagined” tour that will see them performing two sets including a regular full production performance and a intimate performance featuring reimagined versions of various songs. Intervals will serve as support.

The Contortionist’s Eric Guenther commented:

“The Rediscovered concept was born from a desire to escape and redefine the rules of a show. We want to include our fans in an experience reflective of The Contortionist’s wide range of dynamics, not only on the scale of heaviness or intensity but in tone and texture.

Our goal is to invite the listener closer and show ourselves in a fresh new way for our fans who have evolved with us and embraced our sonic exploration over the years. This is an opportunity to ‘pull out all the stops’ and integrate the crowd into the changing aura of the room as we dig deep, reimagine, and give ever-echoing life to our music.”
