“Infected Rain have quickly become one of my favorite bands with some of my favorite people. It’s an honor to scream alongside Lena and the boys in their latest single. Everything IR touches turns to gold; this song and video are no exception. Over the past two years, this has been the feature that has been requested more times that I can count.

I’m especially excited to bring our friends in Infected Rain and Stitched Up Heart along for the ride. This will without a doubt be a DO-NOT-MISS tour with some of the fiercest ladies in metal!”

Carla Harvey continued:

“After almost a year and a half of dark stages, we are so thrilled to be going back out on the road. I cannot wait for that first electric moment in front of a live crowd again, celebrating the return of music together! I expect lots of happy tears in the mosh pit on this run. Making the return even sweeter, we’re bringing along some of our favorite women in metal. This is our first female fronted tour package in the United States, a display of girl power at its finest!”

Henry Flury added:

“We can’t wait to unleash ‘Goliath’ in the stage. Beware kids…we’ve been hibernating. On a scale of 1 to melted faces, get ready to receive an 11.”
