RIVERS OF NIHIL - Announce European Tour with LORNA SHORE!

Rivers of Nihil have announced a November/December 2023 tour of Europe and the U.K. as direct support for Lorna Shore.

The announcement follows the release of the band's brand new single and video, "The Sub-Orbital Blues," and comes on the heels of a very successful headline tour of EU/UK in 2021 that saw nearly half the shows sell out. Rivers of Nihil are currently on tour with Between the Buried and Me in North America.

Ingested and Distant will also join on the upcoming run.

Comments vocalist/bassist Adam Biggs:

"We're extremely excited to support our old friends in Lorna Shore on 'The Pain Remains European tour' along with Ingested and Distant! We plan on rolling out some new bangers as well as some old school Rivers heaters for this tour. See you there."

In March 2023, Rivers of Nihil wrapped up a recording session that saw the now four-piece band birth a considerable amount of new music featuring their previous bassist/backup vocalist Adam Biggs as the new lead vocalist/bassist. This recording session also marked the first appearance of new guitarist Andy Thomas (ex-Black Crown Initiate), whose vocals also play prominently in the music, as a member of Rivers of Nihil. These new singles are the first to showcase the band's new lineup in full-on collaboration, and demonstrates that while this is a new, brave sound with tons of potential, it also carries the band's classic energy.

The first new single "The Sub-Orbital Blues" is available now on all digital platforms.

Here's what Biggs had to say about the new song; "This song is about the dichotomy of living in a 21st century society rife with scientific and technological advancements such as artificial intelligence and ever more sophisticated space travel, while also dealing with the increasing threat of old world problems like out of control governments and the looming threat of world war."

Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland of Atrium Audio engineered, mixed and mastered the new singles, with additional engineering by guitarist Brody Uttley.

The remaining three singles from the April 2023 recording session will be released leading up to the release of the band's next full-length studio album, which the band is eager to begin work on.
