VIMIC (Ex-Slipknot, Etc.) Welcome New Guitarist, Reveal European/UK Tour


VIMIC, who feature ex-Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison and more among their ranks, have officially welcomed guitarist Steve Marshall to their lineup. Marshall‘s addition comes after the seemingly bitter departure of former guitarist Kris Norris (ex-Darkest Hour), who also performed with a number of members of VIMIC in the now defunct Scar The Martyr. In other news, the band have announced a European/UK tour that will take them to the following cities:

03/10 Copenhagen, DEN – Pumpehuset
03/12 Berlin, GER – Musik & Frieden

The band will be touring in support of their upcoming debut album, “Open Your Omen“, which will hit stores in early 2017. Jordison said of that effort:

“The riffs, lyrics, and drums of ‘Open Your Omen‘ will tell you a lot. I did this record when I was coming out of the Acute Transverse Myelitis condition. It’s literally what saved me and helped me get back to where I’m healthier than ever. These guys and this album pushed me to not only relearn how to walk, but how to play the drums again. ‘Open Your Omen‘ is the rebirth of the rest of my life.”

Prior to heading overseas they will be playing the following U.S. shows:

12/26 Des Moines, IA – Wooly’s
