Origin Announce North American Tour with Abysmal Dawn, Tombs, and


I never fully realized the power of Origin as a band until I caught them live. They opened for 1349 in Denver in 2016, and while I came for the chaotic black metal, I walked away with an Origin shirt, because God DAMN if they didn’t blow my fucking mind. So I’m stoked not only to announce that Origin are heading out on tour later this year, but also that they’re doing so with an amazing line-up of openers.

Performing alongside Origin on this year’s ‘The Chaosmos Tour 2022′ will be Los Angeles’ Abysmal Dawn (who released one of 2020’s best albums with Phylogenesis), Brooklyn’s Tombs (who released an even BETTER album in 2020 with Under Sullen Skies), and Canada’s Killitorous (who I don’t know at all, but hey, they’re in incredibly good company). It’s rare we see a live bill and think, Damn, we better come early, but here it is!

Via drummer John Longstreth:

“Here we are again!  Announcing yet another tour! I am happy to report to you that ORIGIN will be hitting the road with ABYSMAL DAWN, TOMBS, and KILLITOROUS! After a two year break, I think it’s easy to understand that everyone may be a little apprehensive, nervous, or maybe just flat out rusty from a 2-year break of not doing what we love, and LUCKILY we get to share this new beginning with some familiar touring friends in ABYSMAL DAWN!  No one is going to feel all that embarrassed about if I can’t remember how to set up a drum kit, or if Charles Elliott has taken on clean singing, or someone forgets where their dirty, sweaty, stinky, salty stage laundry goes in the van!  (it goes in the trailer, dear reader, NOT the van. in a blue Ikea bag, if ya must know). Along with us comes Ottawa’s KILLITOROUS, and TOMBS From Brooklyn, NY to shake things up with everything black, death, tech, doom, and straight out METAL!  So come out and get up close and see what all 4 of these bands have been ruminating in for the past 2 years!  See you on tour!”
