Threshold announce the special guests for the upcoming Dividing Lines Tour. The tour will be supported by Virtual Symmetry, Oddland (20.04.-27.04.) & After Lapse (28.04.-30.04.)

Richard West comments: “It’s great to have the opportunity to bring interesting and innovative bands on tour with us. This year is no exception and we’re looking forward to introducing them to our fans.”

Virtual Symmetry are going to celebrate the latest album, released by Sensory Records. After the long support tour for Evergrey over all Europe, they’re going to play more tracks taken from Virtual Symmetry, the fourth full length of the band.

With their 3rd album Vermilion, highly praised by both fans and the press, released in 2022, Oddland has taken a step into the absolute top of the game, in producing a progressive masterpiece of an album. The sound is a mixture of Tool and Leprous and just has to be heard live, so now, on the Threshold tour, is the chance.

Most likely the newcomer of the year in 2022, After Lapse released their debut album Face The Storm through Frontiers Records and with immense reactions from the metal and rock world, this band is set to conquer any music lover out there, be it prog, power, melodic or hard rock fans.

Threshold will be back at the O2 Islington Academy (London, UK) on 13 May as part of their upcoming European tour to promote their new album Dividing Lines.

Threshold’s keyboardist Richard West commented: “It’s almost five years since we played in London so we’re thrilled to be coming back for an exclusive UK club show. Expect a healthy dose of our new album Dividing Lines along with some old favourites!”

Supporting Threshold for this show will be Grace and Fire.

O2 Priority tickets are available now with general tickets on sale from 10:00 on Friday.
