VIMIC Announces U.S. and European Tour Dates...

Written by

VIMIC, the new band founded by former SLIPKNOT drummer Joey Jordison, is hitting the road. Tonight the band announced a European Tour for the Spring of 2017 in support of their debut album, Open Your Omen, but those here in the 'States can catch the band on a short run later this month, with shows scheduled for the Midwest and Texas. Details below...

"The riffs, lyrics, and drums of Open Your Omen will tell you a lot," Jordison declares. "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."
